AS THE WARM WEATHER CONTINUES SO DO THE GRASS SEEDS - KEEP A LOOK OUT!
As this beautiful warm weather continues the grass and the fields get drier and drier leading to dogs getting grass seeds in various areas - key places to keep a check on are eyes, ears and between toes - any sign of redness or swelling seek veterinary advice. Grass seeds can track very quickly and lead to horrible infection. Signs of a grass seed can also include a dog rubbing its eye, shaking its head or constant licking.
See our facebook page for more pictures and information.

In this warm weather tips are to invest in a paddling pool - dogs love to get wet.

Freeze some of their favourite big biscuits - the ice will cool them down

Frozen carrots make a good cold treat.

Take a bottle of water out so you can rehydrate them on their walk.

DO NOT LEAVE IN CARS OR CONSERVATORIES
