It's that season!
And as many of you know, public and residential areas are being sprayed with pesticides. There has been a lot of cases seen where pups seem to have "allergies", and unfortunately this is common, and true. Remember, we as people have shoes to cover our feet, and perhaps we are more immune to the chemical exposure in this day and age.
Though for our furry friends that are unaware, we want to make sure we care for them as well as we can, their pads of their paws are sensitive and can absorb chemicals just the same as our skin. Immediately! (Our skin absorbs oils as soon as 6 seconds within contact). There are simple steps you can take at home to keep your pet safe and healthy:
1. Wipe your pups paws with UN-scented baby wipes after each time outdoors.
2. Keep witch hazel accessible at home to apply topically if your pup seems to have skin irritation and itching.
3. Find a safe walk route where they are not walking in public grassy areas.
4. Florida residents- be cautious of the insects and critters they like to chase, many are toxic! (I.e. please know the hazards of cane toads, this was new to me!) 5. Just be aware.
And finally, give your puppers much loving!!
