Caring for your furry friend doesn’t only entail providing food, water and a warm bed. There are many areas of dog care and health that are often overlooked until they become a problem. Pet Hero encourages dog owners to take preventive care of your beloved fur-children – making sure their tick and flea treatment is up to date, keeping their dental health in check with daily brushing, regularly deworming your pups, and providing dog-specific care for their every health need. 

We encourage dog owners to do a check-up on your dog’s:

  • Ears – Look out for and redness, odour and inflammation that could indicate an infection.
  • Skin and coat – Is the skin itchy and flaky, and the coat dry and dull? Maybe there’s something else going on underneath it all.
  • Teeth – Brush regularly to remove any plaque and tartar build-up; feed your dog dental chews to assist between brushing.
  • Parasites – Check for ticks and fleas, and make sure your dog is on a long-term tick and flea treatment to protect them from the diseases these pests carry.
  • Emotional health – Is your dog stressed about something? Find out the root cause, but until then, consider a calming solution to bring them some balance.
  • Joints – If your dog winces when climbing up or down from cars and furniture, or limps without an acute cause/injury, they may be experiencing joint degeneration and pain.
  • Digestive health – Check your dog’s lawn ornaments to see if their tummy is healthy, and keep an eye on their weight. 
  • General wellbeing – Some dogs may simply appear poorly, no matter how well you treat them. There could be a serious problem (like an underactive thyroid) underlying their lack of wellbeing, or they simply need to be pepped up with enzymes, prebiotics, herbs, vitamins and minerals.

Whatever your dog’s supplementary need, Pet Hero stocks a great range of dog care and health products.
