KPS monsoon care tips for your pooch

Though monsoons are a huge respite from scorching summers, they bring with them many water-borne diseases or skin infections. Here are a few tips to take care of your pooch in monsoons:

 

  • De-worm your pet periodically.
  • Keep your pet tick-free.
  • Do not feed him cold food and water.
  • Do not take him for a walk in water-logged areas as it is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and pests.
  • Clean his paws and furs when back from a walk.
  • Whenever you find your pooch dirty, give him a bath with antiseptic shampoo but do remember to dry him thoroughly.
  • Groom your dog regularly, taking extra care of his ears and paws.
  • If you notice any foul smell or hair fall, take him to your vet immediately.
  • Feed him fewer calories as he might not be able to go outdoors for long walks.
  • Make his diet more fibre-rich. Feed him a balanced diet.
  • Clean his feeding and water bowls every time you serve him.
  • Give him warm and dry bedding.
