As the cold winter begins to subside, the promise of warmer days, gentle breezes, lush landscapes and the brilliant hues of flowers in bloom are all very much welcomed. For pets, the new season can mean longer walks, more playtime outside and a whole new world of scents and scenery to explore. It’s time to get your pet ready for spring.
Shiny New Coat
Think there’s more fur on your clothes and the furniture lately? It’s not your imagination. During the cold months, pets develop a thick undercoat to trap air warmed by the body, which serves as a type of insulation. As spring approaches, they begin to shed this fur. Help move the process along by combing or brushing your pet every day. Even better – try HandsOn Gloves. As the rounded nodules de-shed, the gloves give your pet a massage and stimulates circulation! The hypoallergenic latex-free gloves are made from surgical grade nitrile.
Rolling in the grass, walking through flowerbeds, trotting on trails – pets can get pretty dirty in the spring. There are several natural grooming products for dogs and cats we love and invite you to check out, including shampoos, conditioners, foams and wipes by Skout’s Honor, Kin + Kind and Earthbath. Note – the HandsOn Gloves are also great for bath time! The gloves gently clean sensitive areas like legs, faces, ears and tight body contours.
Immune System Support
For pets experiencing seasonal allergies, spring can be downright annoying. The itching and skin irritation can feel miserable. There’s a Treatibles for that! The addition of Organic Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil featured in all of our products can help support the immune system as well as the body’s normal inflammatory response. Our fast-absorbing, non-greasy Topical Cream can soothe and relieve the skin. Simply apply to the affected area(s) and gently rub in. Repeat as often as necessary. In addition, we recommend our Hard Chews featuring 1 mg or 4 mg of CBD for dogs, Soft Chewables featuring 3 mg CBD for dogs or 1.5 mg CBD for cats, or one of our Oil Dropper Bottles (90 mg, 250 mg or 750 mg CBD for dogs and cats) for internal support.
Unfortunately, spring is also a calling card for fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. If you are looking for a non-toxic, natural approach to staving off these blood-sucking and potentially harmful bugs, check out the full line of products from Wondercide. In addition to topical spray and wipe repellents, they offer products to protect you, your home and the yard.
