Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - PETS & VETS -

SPRING has of­fi­cially sprung and while you and your pooch should be ex­cited about the warmer weather and longer days, there are a few hazards to be con­scious of.

Dogs Queens­land gen­eral man­ager Rob Har­ri­son said it’s im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that your dog needs to ease back into ex­er­cise just like you.

“As the weather starts to warm up, it’s com­mon for peo­ple and their pooches to find re­newed mo­ti­va­tion in all as­pects of their lives and, al­though this can be a great thing, it’s im­por­tant to not go over­board,” he said.

Also re­mem­ber while spring clean­ing and get­ting into the gar­den, to keep house­hold clean­ers and fer­tilis­ers away from pets.
