It doesn't seem possible after the brutal winter we endured, but Spring is finally here. Now your dog will be more active, spending more time outdoors, snooping around the yard and finding things that have accumulated over the months of snow. Check your yard to ensure there are no things there that can harm your dog. Spring also means wildlife becomes more active, roaming into your yard and, yes, trying to spread intestinal parasites in their feces. Roundworms and hookworms are very common in our native squirrels, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, etc. Make sure your dog is protected from these harmful parasites by giving monthly parasite prevention.
