Most mutt owners make dog health care a priority. Pet owners always want their animal to be in perfect health. Most will also be aware that dog health care considerations change from season to season.

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, then the end of the winter will currently be in sight and you’ll be beginning to look forward to the spring season. Springtime is almost universally loved. With springs comes cute new born lambs and beautiful yellow daffodils.

There are different dog health care challenges in spring to those in the other seasons. The grooming of the dog is one thing that will radically change. The warmer climate means the dog will start to shed their coat. You will have to clean their habitat more regularly because it will be covered in hairs.

Daffodils may be beautiful, but they are also toxic to dogs and other animals. Make sure your dog doesn’t start nibbling the daffodils in your back garden. 

There is a chance your dog will suffer from hay fever. Pollen, dust and airborne moulds can cause problems for dogs, as well as humans. Keep an eye on your dog to see if they are sneezing more regularly during the spring season. Consult a vet if this is your dog.

The staple dog health care tasks should not be forgotten about with the arrival of these new tasks. Good dog health care prevents your dog developing serious medical issues. 

The good news is that spring doesn’t pose the same threats to your dog health care program as the winter does. This doesn’t mean you can rest on your laurels though. Dog health care is a constant and sometimes challenging process. The rewards are evident though, especially when your dog is in a spritely, affectionate mood.
