Spring into Spring!

Winter is over and spring is here, and it’s blooming marvellous! The seasonal change from winter to spring can have various effects on dogs, just as it can on humans. Here are some ways in which dogs can be affected by this transition and tips on how to keep them healthy and happy as they spring into spring!..

 

1. Temperature Changes: 

As winter transitions to spring, temperatures gradually rise. Dogs with thick coats that helped keep them warm during the winter may start to feel uncomfortable as the weather becomes warmer. It’s important to ensure they have a cool and shaded place to rest and access to fresh water.

 

2. Shedding & Grooming: 

Many dogs experience a shedding season as the days become longer and temperatures rise. Dogs that have a thicker winter coat may start to shed more as they prepare for the warmer months. Regular brushing can help manage shedding and prevent matting. With the increase in outdoor activities and exposure to mud and water, dogs might get dirtier more quickly. Therefore regular grooming and maintaining proper hygiene become important during this transition.

 

3. Allergies: 

Just like humans, dogs can suffer from seasonal allergies. Spring can bring about increased pollen levels and other allergens, leading to symptoms such as itching, scratching, watery eyes, and sneezing. While there’s no definitive cure for seasonal allergies in dogs, a high-quality, human-grade fresh dog food diet containing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant rich ingredients as well as prebiotics and probiotics such as provided by Wolfit Box may help to alleviate allergy symptoms and support overall skin and immune health. 

 

4. Outdoor Activities:

 With milder weather, you might find yourself spending more time outdoors with your dog. This can be a great opportunity for exercise and play, but it’s important to be mindful of your dog’s fitness level and gradually increase activity to avoid strain or injury.

 

5. Behavioural Changes: 

Some dogs might show increased energy and excitement as the weather improves. This can be a good time to engage in more outdoor training and play activities. However, sudden weather changes or loud springtime noises (such as thunderstorms) can also lead to anxiety or fear reactions in some dogs.

Remember that every dog is unique, and their reactions to seasonal changes can vary. Observing your dog’s behaviour, keeping them comfortable, and maintaining their health are key factors in ensuring a smooth transition from winter to spring.
