Spring is in the air!

The beginning of spring is just around the corner. The days are getting longer, temperatures are rising, and the birds are starting to sing again. This also means a fresh start for our beloved pets. They are allowed outdoors more, basking in the first rays of sunshine. It’s time for swimming and long walks once again. With the arrival of spring, many pets shed their winter coat, and creatures like ticks and fleas become active again. Therefore, it’s important to be well-prepared. At Vetsend, we have everything you need to ensure your pet can fully enjoy the spring season.



A fresh start for your pet

Spring has arrived, bringing not only blooming flowers and warmer temperatures but also the perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with your pet. This season opens the doors to various activities that both you and your furry friend will appreciate. Whether it’s relaxing walks in the park, refreshing swims, energetic jogging sessions, or fun bike rides – spring calls for action and adventure. So, get those hiking boots, bring out the bicycle from the shed, and get ready for a season filled with fun and healthy exercise with your lovely pet. Spring is the perfect time to strengthen the bond with your pet as you explore the great outdoors together.


Time to go outside!

What should you pay attention to?

With the arrival of spring, there are several important considerations for your pet’s well-being. Regularly check for ticks and fleas, as they become more active in warmer weather. Additionally, pets undergo changes in their coat during spring; extra brushing helps remove loose hair and promotes a healthy coat. Don’t forget to pay attention to the birds in the garden. Pets may be curious and sniff around, but make sure they do not disturb the birds.

Finally, consider allergies such as hay fever in animals. Some pets may be allergic to pollen and experience symptoms like itchy eyes and a runny nose. Consult your veterinarian if you suspect your pet has hay fever and discuss possible treatment options. With these considerations, you and your pet can enjoy spring worry-free.


The best care for your pet

Fleas and ticks

With the arrival of spring comes the season when fleas and ticks become active again, requiring extra attention for our beloved pets. The rising temperatures and humid environment provide ideal conditions for these pesky creatures to multiply. Fortunately, there are some simple measures you can take to protect your furry friends.

Regularly combing and checking their coat is a way to quickly detect fleas and ticks. Additionally, various preventive treatments are available, such as spot-on treatments, flea and tick collars, and oral medications that your veterinarian may recommend. It is essential to choose a suitable product that fits the type of pet and its specific needs.

By being proactive and paying attention to both your pets and their surroundings, you can create a comfortable and healthy living environment for them, even during the active flea and tick season.

4 helpful tips for spring with your pet

Tip 1: Hay fever

Did you know that in spring, the pollen season starts again? Hay fever is becoming increasingly common with our dogs, cats, and horses. This is an allergy to the pollen of flowering plants, grasses, and trees. Like humans, animals can experience various symptoms, including dry eyes, itching, a runny nose, and sneezing. Be alert about this and start supporting your pet in time.

Tip 2: Exercise together with your dog!

Nothing is more enjoyable than moving together, and spring is perfect for this! The sun is shining again, but it’s not too warm to be truly active.

Do you enjoy walking? Then you can find various enjoyable walking routes online that you can do together with your dog. If you prefer cycling with your dog, ensure a proper warm-up and cool-down and plan enough rest days. If your dog is not used to cycling, start building it up now. Read more about it in our blog about cycling with your dog. With the Trixie bike set, you can keep both hands on the handlebars while cycling. It’s safer that way!

Do you usually opt for the longest cycling routes? Then take your four-legged friend along behind your bike in a bike trailer, so you can go out together, but your dog doesn’t have to run the entire time.

Spring is also the ideal season to improve your fitness by going for a run. If your dog can’t run off-leash, use a waist belt that you wear around your middle. It’s important to build this up slowly, both for yourself and your dog. You can find various running schedules online. Pay attention to your dog’s age and consult your veterinarian to determine if your dog is ready for running.

Tip 3: Hotter days!

Now that the temperature outside is rising again, it’s good to be prepared. Never leave your dog alone in the car; take your dog with you or leave him at home. If you’re heading out with your dog, always make sure you have a supply of drinking water. With the convenient Beeztees portable water bottle, you always have water and a bowl on hand.

Tip 4: Foxtails!

The most notorious type of grass for your dog is foxtails. Foxtails may look harmless, but they have small barbs that allow them to easily become embedded in your dog’s fur. The foxtail can then crawl further into your dog’s coat and nestle into the skin, causing a lot of pain and discomfort. Avoid areas with foxtails during walks, and always check your dog after the walk. Remove foxtails from the fur before they reach the skin!
