Huck’s Tips for Happy, Healthy Dog Days of Summer
Love your dog’s long, beautiful coat, but want to keep her cool this summer? Consider a shorter trim on her belly. Also, keeping the long hair/undercoat brushed out all summer long will make her feel as cool as can be! Regular grooming helps dogs of all coat textures.
Don’t forget the flea and tick treatment! Check with your vet for the best option for your pet. Are pesky bugs a bother? We now carry “NoBugz” spray, which helps combat mosquitoes, biting flies, gnats and more!
Can’t keep your dog out of the lake or pool this summer? Brushing long coated dogs before and after a swim (just like before and after bathing) can help prevent matting and tangles. Use a cotton ball and wipe ears to dry out the ears after a dip in the pond.
Hot asphalt is no friend to your dog. Just remember, if the asphalt would feel uncomfortable on your bare feet, it’s too hot for Fido’s paws! Opt for some playtime in the grass or indoors instead.
Many types of pets are at risk of having oral problems related to poor dental hygiene. In fact, dental disease in pets is one of the most common medical conditions seen by veterinarians. Over 80 percent of dogs have significant dental problems including loose teeth, sore or infected gums, and rotting tooth sockets. Because of these facts, it is important to know the signs of a dental problem with your pet and take preventative measures to improve dental hygiene.
There are many signs of a dental hygiene problem in pets. Spotting the warning signs early is important so you can help treat the problem. These warning signs include persistent bad breath, noticeable gum issues, loose teeth, missing teeth, pus around the tooth, yellow deposits on teeth, sensitivity around the mouth, pawing at face, or obvious discomfort when chewing. Some examples of gum issues include receding gum lines, gums that bleed easily, and red or swollen gums.
There are many solutions available for improving pet dental hygiene. The most effective way to maintain your pet’s oral health is brushing their teeth. Brushing teeth with a toothpaste made for pets is the best way to remove plaque and prevent tartar on teeth. Another option is to use an oral rinse or gel. To use a rinse, squirt a small amount on each side of your pet’s mouth on the inside of the cheeks. Finally, employing a dental diet or providing rawhide chew treats for your pet will help remove tartar from teeth.
Please consult with your pet’s veterinarian to help you come up with a preventative care dental regimen for your cat, dog, or other pets. For more information on dental hygiene for pets, please contact Huckleberry’s Pet Parlor at (815) 899-3435 or email@example.com.
