Healthy Skin, Happy Animal: Prepare Your Pet’s Coat for Winter with These Helpful Tips Pet Care Tips 2 min read
As the cold weather begins to blow our way, we often see our pets scratching, licking, and chewing their fur a little more than we’d like. In preparing our pets for winter, it’s key to establish a healthy, conditioned coat in order to keep your animals as comfortable as possible.
The first step to a healthy coat is to ensure that your pet’s fur is free of ticks, fleas, or lice. You can do this by carefully combing through your animal’s fur with your fingers, feeling for any bumps on the skin. Bites can vary in size from a pinhead to the size of a grape, so pay close attention. Applying NHV’s Target Spray for fleas, ticks, lice, and mosquito repellant is a quick and easy way to help your pet naturally rid itself of pests. The soothing herbal formula works quickly, smells pleasant, and will also calm skin irritated by scratching.
Another source of discomfort for pets is internal parasites, which can drain an animal’s energy levels at any time of year. NHV’s Inulin PK will strengthen your pet’s immune system, support gastrointestinal tract healing, eliminate parasites, and even repair the damage that roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, and threadworms can cause in an animal’s system.
Once you’ve established that your pet’s coat and intestinal tract are free of unwelcome guests, regular maintenance becomes key in keeping your animal healthy. In addition to brushing and bathing, natural vitamin supplements can work wonders to keep an animal’s coat shiny and conditioned. NHV’s Multi Essentials herbal multivitamin, digestive aid and energy booster will stimulate metabolism, shield your pet from environmental toxins, and promote healthy skin and fur.
A healthy animal is a happy animal, and after taking these steps, you’ll be sure to see an improvement not only in your pet’s coat, but also their mood. Check out our NHV Website for more information on healthy skin and fur maintenance this winter.
