Lyme disease is an illness spread by ticks. It’s caused by a bacteria that is spread when a tick attaches to your pet. It can cause a variety of vague symptoms.
If your dog loves running through long grass, it’s important to check them for grass seeds afterwards. Grass seeds might look small and harmless, but can cause a great deal of trouble.
Harvest mites can often be seen as tiny red/orange ‘dots’ on the skin and fur, and usually cause symptoms like itchy skin and red, inflamed skin on dogs.
Skin is very important for protection and keeping the body warm. Skin problems can significantly affect a dog’s quality of life and make them feel miserable.
Dogs like to keep themselves clean, so if you notice your dog has dandruff (dry, flaky skin) it could be a sign of a problem.
