Is your pet suffering from, arthritis? Arthritis in dogs is often shown with stiffness, limping, or favoring a limb. Often times, arthritis comes as a result of age, lack of proper exercise, or poor nutrition. Joint supplements can be used to help prevent and ease pain caused by osteoarthritis. We offer many trusted brands for joint and arthritis relief.
FLEA AND TICK
Fleas can cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), tapeworms, hair loss, skin irritations and anemia - due to blood loss. Ticks transmit Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Products that specialize in monthly flea and tick protection to keep your pet safe and parasite-free are available at great prices. The best time to start a flea treatment is in winter when the eggs are dormant. So you can get rid of them before they hatch come summer.
What are obvious signs of allergies? Dogs that lick their paws, scratch their ears, rub their face, have watery eyes, and lose large amounts of hair, suffer from allergies. Fleas or hormonal diseases can also cause these problems. Specially formulated treats are available to help alleviate allergy symptoms. When in doubt, consult a veterinarian.
Pets that eat their feces (also known as coprophagy) suffer from poor quality diets. vitamin B deficiency is the common problem in coprophagic pets. The daily portion of high-quality foods can be divided into smaller, more frequent meals. Food additives can effectively eliminate and prevent stool-eating.
PET BAD BREATH
Bad breath is primarily caused by plaque that results from bacteria, saliva and food particles in the mouth. Plaque can develop into gingivitis and periodontal disease. Halitosis can also be a sign of serious medical conditions. Treats and water additives are available to help promote good oral hygiene. Regular visits to your veterinarian can help prevent severe oral problems.
Getting your pet in shape can be beneficial for both you and your pet. The better your pet’s health is, the less likely they’ll have medical problems and not need to visit the veterinarian as frequently. From basic pet toys to hyper toys for high intensity pets, your pet will have fun and be in shape at the same time!
PET STRESS FACTORS
Thunderstorms, fireworks, visits by strangers, or moving to a new home can cause stress to dogs. The noise or new environment causes anxiety in your pets and results in bad behavior like scratching furniture, urinating around the house or even biting. These products work well to restore a sense of calm and control to your pet.
