Monsoon dog care tips : 8 important things to follow

It’s that time when we’re ready to bid farewell to the scorching heat and head out for some delightful chai and pakoras while enjoying the cool breeze. While we’re all geared up for the monsoons, here are quick monsoon dog care tips to enjoy a safe and cheerful monsoon too!

Learn 8 quick monsoon dog care tips

1. Vet visit and deworming

A mandatory vet visit is a must before the monsoons set in. This will not only serve as a routine check-up but you can also get the deworming done since most monsoon-induced problems are related to parasites. Also, ensure you do not miss out on any vaccination due to the weather and keep a close check on the vaccination schedule.

2. Diet

This will not only serve as a routine check-up but you can also get the deworming done since most monsoon-induced problems are related to parasites. Also, ensure you do not miss out on any vaccination due to the weather and keep a close check on the vaccination schedule.

3. Water

Just like in the case of humans, dogs may suffer from water-borne diseases as well. It may be a good idea to give them water which is boiled and cooled to keep unnecessary vet visits away!

4. Clean and Dry

Try and take your dog outside with protective gear only and if your dog loves the monsoons even more than you do, come back home and ensure that your dog’s coat is dried properly to avoid the spread of fungal infections due to a wet coat. Train your dog to wear boots and get her used to a raincoat to ensure that their paws and coat remain dry.

5. Oh no! Ticks!

Monsoons are the time for parasites too! Check your dog’s ears, coat, and paws regularly to ensure there are no ticks or fleas. Alternatively, you can also check with your vet for a good anti-repellent without any side effects which you can regularly use for your dog

6. Indoor Games

Your dog is going to be bored because her physical activities and outings are going to be affected due to the monsoons. This is, however, the best time to strengthen your bond with your dog by playing some indoor games like the sniffing game and some puzzles. This will also help in mental stimulation and keep the boredom at bay

7. Warm Space (in case of thunders)

You must also understand that not all dogs are going to be fond of the rains. Some dogs may even be scared of the thunder and shower. Make sure you provide a silent warm place for your dog to relax during the monsoons. Also, please try and help the street dogs during the rains. Give them shelter in your parking spaces and provide for food, water, and basic necessities during the monsoons.

8. Plan those monsoon trips, but with your fur baby!

Last, but definitely not least, go ahead and plan those monsoon hikes and road trips! Ensure you have everything in place as per the “Travel checklist” and these monsoon tips and you are good to go! 

That’s it folks! We hope our monsoon dog care tips helped you. Every season presents opportunities to visit new places and have amazing experiences with your dog. Make lots of memories and don’t forget to have fun!
