Spring Approaching

The first day of spring is just around the corner! Now that spring is almost here, our pets are eager (as well as us humans) to return to our favorite outdoor activities. For my lab Jax, his favorite outdoor activity is spending the day at the lake. He also loves to play fetch and can spend hours running after his favorite frisbee and catching a tennis ball. We are now able to resume our daily walks and enjoy the warm weather. 

Socializing your pet

For our other brand ambassador, Sonic he is an aussiedoodle and his mom loves to take him and his brother Dude to the dog park. This is a great place for dogs to interact and socialize with other dogs while also getting in exercise and playtime. She also loves to take Dude & Sonic to her favorite pet friendly local brewery or restaurant. This allows her fur babies to socialize in a safe environment with other pets while also socializing with her friends & family.

Skin allergies and your pet 

While spring is an exciting time, it also comes with challenges for not only us but for our pets as well. One of the main challenges for not only pets, but for us as well is seasonal allergies. Just like we experience allergies and the occasional flare ups, so do our pets. Whether that be environmental or food related, feeding a raw diet can help alleviate these concerns. Incorporating omega 3s into the diet, such as salmon oil can help improve hot spots and itchy skin associated with skin allergies. 

As previously mentioned, Jax loves to play outside. As a result, he has been prone to the occasional flare up of hot spots especially between his paws due to environmental allergies. Environmental allergies are very common around this time of year and as the seasons change. Adding salmon oil and switching his protein over to lamb has helped dramatically improve his skin when he experiences any flare ups and provides an additional boost to his immune system.

It’s tick season

Another factor to take into consideration as spring time approaches is ticks. It is crucial to take the proper precautions to not only protect yourself, but your pets from ticks that can potentially carry harmful diseases. It can be difficult to see ticks from the naked eye, which is why it is essential to take the proper precautions. As a pet parent to cats as well, it can be difficult to spot ticks especially due to their long fur. I recommend checking your pet for ticks every time they come back into your home and they have spent some time outside. A pro tip that works wonders at helping prevent ticks and fleas is diatomaceous earth dust. Simply sprinkle onto any furniture or even directly onto your pet (as long as it is a pet safe version). 

There are endless fun activities that you and your pet can enjoy this spring season. 

We would love to hear how you and your fur baby are choosing to celebrate the first day of spring and take advantage of the warmer weather! Share your favorite outside activities by tagging @barfworld.
