1. Treat your Pet for Fleas all year round

A common misconception among pet owners is that fleas tend to die during the cooler months, thus many owners stop using flea treatments, in fact it is the opposite, heated homes provide the ideal environment for fleas to breed.  Flea control is a year round commitment and by treating your pets even through winter is the only way to ensure both your pets and your home are flea free all year round.

2. Provide your Pet with Extra Warmth

As the temperature drops we tend to pile on the layers, socks, jumpers, gloves and beanies but what do we do for our pets?  Many pets are not suited to the cooler months like we are so by adding a winter dog coat we can protect them from the harsh elements.

3. Moderate your Pets Food

Just like humans, pets also use energy to create body heat, thus meaning some pets may require some extra calories to maintain a comfortable warmth by simply adding a small amount to their usual serving to help stay healthy.  Remember not to over do it.  A recommendation would be increasing their meal by 10% if you felt this is necessary.  Any more and it could be hard for them to shed the extra weight in the warmer months.  Also remember to have an adequate water supply as pets still need clean water during winter.

4. Provide Warm Shelter

As the weather cools pets love nothing more than to curl up inside in the warmth but this may not always be possible, so pets who spend their time outside need to have adequate shelter and warmth to protect them.  As good kennel needs to be strong, waterproof and insulated and should also be elevated off the ground and away from draughts.  It should be large enough for the pet to stand and move around in but small enough to retain their body heat.

5. Watch for signs of Arthritis

As pets get older they become more susceptible to the effects of arthritis in the cooler months.  If your pet is having trouble getting up or laying down, using stairs or has started to snap or cry when being picked up, you should visit your veterinarian for advice. There are many over the counter supplements to help ease their symptoms including Joint Powder for Dogs, Joint Guard and Sasha’s Blend.  These are all high in glucosamine and other ingredients which help to control and manage the effects of arthritis.   NEVER give your pet human medication or over the counter medication without consulting your veterinarian first.

6. Exercise your Pets

It is important that your pet gets at lease one hour of exercise daily even through the cooler months. Pets cooped up inside can become restless and display unwanted behavioural patterns.  Exercise will also help keep your pets body temperature and maintain their mental and physical health.

In the dry food range we stock:

Dog Health

Keeping your dog healthy is an ongoing responsibility, particularly here in Queensland with the problems of paralysis tick, mosquito borne heart worm and flea infestations.

Regular treatments using the appropriate products along with daily inspection, especially for paralysis tick, as well as an annual check up with your local vet will ensure your pet continues to be healthy.
