While higher temperatures bring smiles to many people's faces they can make life difficult for our furry friends, so Ruth and FRONTLINE® Spot On vet Simone Pomerantz have created a series of helpful videos with hints and tips such as:
- Give pets a once over after walks looking for thorns or grass seeds, as well as nasty parasites like ticks, which can transmit Lyme Disease to both humans and dogs - don't miss out on those hard to reach areas like inbetween the toes!
- Remember to exercise your dog at the coolest point of the day, to ensure they don't overheat. Before 9am or after 7pm is best, which may mean some early mornings!
- Invest in a water bottle specifically designed for dogs that can be easily carried on walks, so your dog doesn't become dehydrated
- And finally…help protect all cats and dogs in your home against fleas and ticks by treating monthly, throughout the year, with FRONTLINE® Spot On – prevention's better than cure!
Ruth Langsford said: "Maggie is a huge part of our family and, like all pet owners out there, her welfare is a real priority. And of course, keeping homes clean, and in particular preventing flea infestations, is something all pet owners will welcome advice on. By following these simple tips, and remembering to keep pets protected against fleas and ticks with monthly FRONTLINE® Spot On applications, owners can look forward to enjoying the good times with their furry friends this summer".
