Summer is a very exciting season for dogs as it usually signals a time when they can enjoy more walks, more trips to the park and even visits to rivers, lakes and the seaside for some swimming and frolicking in the water.
But the sunnier warmer months of the year can also cause some issues for dog owners. Fleas become a major problem during the summer as a result of rising temperatures and the spread of canine diseases, and many dog owners could unintentionally be putting their pets at risk by not following basic summer pet care guidelines.
According to Elanco Companion Animal Health, a leading global developer of pet medicine, almost half of all dog owners are not aware that their canine could lose protection from spot-on flea treatments when they bathe or swim.
However the good news is that a fast acting, chewable, beef-flavoured tablet that kills fleas and prevents flea infestations on dogs for a full month is now available from vets nationwide.
Also dogowners can take part in a live web TV show with vetinary expert David Grant and actress Joanna Page of Gavin and Stacey fame on Wednesday 4 July at 5pm to talk through any concerns about dog health care in the summer. Please go to studiotalk.tv/show/how-to-take-care-of-your-dog-this-summer.
