During the dog days of summer, if your pooch goes swimming in the pool or in the sea, be sure to wash off her fur and give her coat a good shampooing too. Pool chlorine and sea water is drying  on the skin and fur and could cause itchiness and further problems.


tip of the day

Dogs (and some cats) like cool treats just as kids do. Consider freezing Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree dietary supplements in an ice tray and serve ice as a summer treat. Alternatively, turn the frozen treat into something special by freezing the mixture in small plastic cups and using a natural chewy treat as the stick. Insert the treat when the puree is partly frozen to get the stick to stand up properly. The treat should be easy to remove from the cup if you run the cup briefly under lukewarm water.
