If your dog spends the day outside while you are gone, here is a rainy weather tip to keep in mind.
The rainy season is nature’s way of cleaning up and rejuvenating your surroundings. It would be great to go outside and enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of the rain with your loyal furry friend. Of course, you should be aware that the rainy season is not exactly ideal weather for dogs. Discomfort and health issues are the main issues that you should watch out for during the rainy season. Here are some ways on how you should care for your dog when it’s wet outside:
Clean Your Dog’s Ears
Your dog could contract ear infections during the rainy season. Moisture easily accumulates in dogs with closed ears such as Dachshunds, Labradors, and Basset Hounds. Ear wax and moisture come together and cause ear infections. Just like the paws, ears should always be kept dry, especially after your walk outside.
