If you’ve noticed your dog tearing up, your cat obsessively licking her paws, your pet may be one of many that struggles with spring allergies. While allergies may seem like nothing to sneeze at, they can make your companion feel miserable.
Want to learn how you can identify these allergies and what you can do to help? We’re here to help you make heads, tails, ears, nose, and toes when it comes to springtime allergies for pets.
There’s little more disturbing and disgusting to pet parents than parasites, and even as pet professionals, they gross us out too. Intestinal worms, fleas, and ticks are all live off the blood of your pet and that in itself is upsetting. Along with being gross, parasites can also severely harm your pets’ health.

To protect your pet’s health, we’ve put these minuscule parasites under the microscope to help you learn about how hookworms operate and the risks they pose to your pet.
