We have been regularly sharing tips on monsoon care, however, with all the focus on us, let’s not forget about our pets too. So here is a lowdown on how to keep pets healthy and prevent them from getting sick during monsoon.
* Pets are prone to a number of infections in this weather. Cold, cough and pneumonia are your usual culprits. Dogs usually suffer from malassezia which causes itchy skin rashes and burns, whereas cats are prone to respiratory infections. Avoid getting your pets wet in the rain and keep them as dry as possible.
* Make a priority to get your pet de-wormed by your vet, as they are most susceptible to worms in the rainy season. “Worm infection can lead to anemia, general debility anorexia and dullness of coat,” says veterinarian Dr S K Choudhary.
