Recently, it has been rainy and humid, and when the temperature is heating up, many parents have responded to dog skin diseases. Summer and the rainy season are the seasons when dogs are most likely to get sick. Skin diseases are the first to get sick in summer. Skin diseases are as small as mosquito bites and complex to demodex and scabies. In severe cases, it can endanger the dog's life. Taking advantage of the summer is not yet here, let's learn a few ways to prevent dog skin diseases!
1. Deworming regularly
In the rainy, hot and humid environment, fleas, ticks, lice, mites and other blood-sucking parasites are very active and rampant. Dogs are often tricked when having fun in the grass. After a dog is infected with these parasites, symptoms such as itching, hair loss, and red spots on the skin will appear. Itching and blood sucking from parasites can have adverse effects on dogs, such as physical decline, weight loss, withered coat, and anemia. In order to prevent this type of skin disease, we recommend that parents regularly deworm their babies outside of the body, usually once every 3 months, and can be changed to once every 1 to 2 months in summer.
2. Keep the home environment clean
There are also hidden dangers in the home. A little carelessness may breed bacteria and germs. If the dog has wounds on his body, it is easy to be invaded by bacteria and cause serious skin diseases. Therefore, it is very important for parents to keep the home tidy, especially the area where the dog often moves.
3. Keep your dog's body clean and fresh
As the weather heats up gradually, parents will take more baths than before. Generally, they will wash once every half a month in summer. After each bath, be sure to blow dry the body, so as to prevent the dog's body from becoming wet and becoming a hotbed of bacteria. In addition, once you get caught in the rain while walking the dog, you must clean and blow dry the hair when you come home, especially the crevices of the dog's paws are especially prone to inflammation due to uncleanness.
4. Increase your own resistance
The dog's own resistance is also a natural barrier to prevent the invasion of germs. The lack of nutrition will cause the dog's immunity to decline, and it will be prone to disease. We must ensure that the dog’s diet is healthy and balanced. In addition to choosing healthy and nutritious dog food, we can appropriately supplement some cans, nutritional creams, and other nutrients.
There are many causes of skin diseases, but the symptoms are generally similar. If a dog suffers from a skin disease, it is best to take it to the hospital immediately for advice from a doctor, and do not use drugs indiscriminately. Skin diseases can be large or small, and the most important thing is prevention and early detection and treatment.
