Spring is Here!

Spring is here! That means it’s time to say “goodbye” to winter and “hello” to more opportunities to spend quality time outside with your dog. Here are some spring health care tips for dogs in Jacksonville to make sure that your pet is properly taken care of during this season of the year.

Pests and Parasites | It’s that time of year again. Flea and tick season is upon us in Jacksonville, FL, and nothing annoys a dog more than those pesky pests. Responsible dog owners know that their canine companion’s warm body and soft fur is a personal paradise for these insects. But once they move in — and begin feeding on your pet’s blood — they can cause a wide range of health problems, from skin infections to Lyme disease.

Your best bet for effective and safe solutions is to speak to one of our veterinarians and find the best, most appropriate flea and tick prevention product for your dog.

It’s Allergy Season | Just like humans, our furry friends can be allergic to many springtime items. If your dog seems to have any of the following symptoms, make a trip to our vet so your dog can get checked out and receive any medication they may need to be more comfortable during allergy season.

• Respiratory congestion • Itchy flaky skin (pruritus) • Hair loss Itching Ear infections • Shaking their head and scratching one or both ears • Smelly and/or “dirty” ears • Licking of the paws and anus • Patchy skin or skin irregularities

Following these spring health care tips for dogs in Florida can help ensure your dog has a healthy and happy spring season!
