(Atlantic) Spring time for pet owners means time to starting brushing. Here’s Dr. Keith Leonard from the Atlantic Animal Center says,
“One of the things we are seeing right now is almost every dog and cat that comes in is shedding. If you don't have a brush out there you better get a brush on them. If you don't get that old hair off of them then it mats up. Then we get into what we refer to as hot spots these mostly occur in longer haired dogs”
Dr. Leonard says to make sure your pet has plenty of shade when things warm up.
