Animal rights activist, Dola Sengupta says, “Last year, around 100 stray dogs and cats died during the monsoon due to lack of shelter and food in Pune and Mumbai.
Falling prey to parasites is the biggest trouble for dogs, especially during monsoon, and to curb this, pet owners are ensuring that their pooches remain always clean.So, one must take care that the pet is drinking clean water and ensure that they are given all the required vaccines.
While there is no harm in enjoying the rains with your pooch occasionally, the pet parents must keep in mind dogs also need special care during this period, just like humans. Try to avoid water-logged areas when you take out your pooch for a walk.
Hair shedding, immunity issues or an infection—the answer to these problems faced by your dog can be found in their diet, say experts. Diet is one of the most important elements to solve the underlying problem of yeast build up and its resulting infections throughout a dog's body.
