We spend all of our time getting ready for the cold weather by winterizing our wardrobes, our cars, our houses, but we never stop to think about our pets! We shouldn't forget that they need some help winterizing too, and with all this recent (and crazy) snowfall happening, I think now is the best time to give some helpful hints!
Nobody likes having cold feet right? Well neither do our furry friends, especially the ones of the canine variety. Our dogs still need their daily walks, and their yard time to do their "business", but when its snowy/icy outside it's not always fun for them. We need to protect their little (or big) paws, and there are plenty of great products out there to help!
Another important thing to remember is to keep them dry. After going outside, for a walk or otherwise, remember to give them a good pat down with a nice warm towel! I'm sure they wouldn't mind laying in front of the fireplace too if you have one too!
The last few years the tick population has been crazy - ticks have been populating shrubs from the trestles to Kelowna's urban parks. No-one likes dealing with ticks, and we all want to protect our pets against Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
Our Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital tick spray uses the power of rose geranium, lavender and lemongrass to repel ticks with a potent floral aroma.
