Springtime Health Risks for Dogs

Now that spring is around the corner, we all couldn’t wait to go out with our pets. Well, yay! After all, the change of season would leave behind the harsh climatic conditions and we would welcome longer, warmer days. While we are equally excited for spring as you and your pets are, we do not want you to overlook the potential hazards your pets may face during this time.

Hazardous Landscaping:

Fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides

Spring season means spending more time gardening. Everyone enjoys mowing their lawns, adding new plants to their garden, and nurturing them with fertilizers. But, fertilizers! While they can be good enough for our gardens, these chemicals can be a big threat to our dogs. Fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides that we spray in our backyards are typically safe for us but can be highly toxic to our pets if they ingest them. It can lead to gastrointestinal irritations, diarrhea, and stomach upsets in dogs. Therefore, make sure to keep an eye on your dog while you two are basking out in the garden!
