Pet Care During Monsoon Season

Many of us are known to suffer from a number of ailments during the monsoons and hence it is of utmost importance to take extreme care to see to it that we are not eating the wrong kind of food or drinking unhygienic water.
Similarly, our pets are also prone to a number of infections during the monsoon and this season might not be very pleasant for them. Pet owners have to take a lot of care to see to it that their pets stay disease-free this season.

Bandra resident Pulak Mohanty who has four dogs at home believes that great care needs to be taken as far as pets are concerned during monsoon. “My dogs are between the age group of 9 months and 7 years. In my family everyone has always been an animal lover and hence all the four dogs are almost like a part of the family. During the rains one of the biggest problems which we face is taking them out for a walk. We literally have to wait for hours while its raining for taking them out on a stroll. The dogs also start feeling uneasy when you do not allow them to move out,” he adds. Besides, in some cases pets are very prone to get skin rashes and hence one should use good shampoos. Make sure to keep the dogs as dry as possible, also all the necessary vaccinations are to be given to them prior to monsoons so that they do not get any kind of infection.

Veterenarian Dr Rituraj Gaitonde says, “Ticks and fleas are the most common problems that most pets face during monsoons.Pets are prone to get tick fever during the monsoon which in some cases could even lead to kidney failure. Besides, they can also get jaundice if they have consumed the wrong kind of water. Rainy season is usually the breeding ground for water-borne diseases and other intestinal and stomach infections. Hence, one must take care that your pet is drinking clean water and ensure that he/she has been given all the required vaccines. Keep his/her sleeping area free of mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and bugs as these can be quite menacing especially during the monsoon months.”

He adds, “Try giving your pet boiled or filtered water. Besides, when taking your pet out for a walk put a cover on their face so that they do not chew anything which is not good for them. Especially in case of dogs they have a high sense of smell and hence easily go and eat something which is not good for their health.”
Vets also suggest that pets should take their booster dose so that they do not get any kind of infection and any recurrent infections can also be avoided. “Try not giving your pet non-vegetarian food during the rains mainly because they might face some kind of digestion problem. And so in such cases its best to stick to giving vegetarian food to your pet,” adds Gaitonde.

Pets blessed with owners having lavish apartments are lucky as they have enough place to move around the home easily during the monsoon. Dogs with really long hair and need to be scrubbed well during the monsoon. Remember, not to allow your dog to chew grass during the rains.
