Spring isn’t the only thing to have sprung: so have fleas and ticks!
These parasites emerge during warmer weather and, as your dog will be heading outdoors for longer stretches, he’ll be at a higher risk of encountering them – especially in long grass.
While both fleas and ticks can cause severe itching and discomfort, ticks can also spread conditions such as Lyme disease (a bacterial infection that can result in lameness, a high temperature and kidney problems).
Spot-on treatments are a good way to keep your dog protected all year long. Speak to your vet to find the best products for your pet.
