    Spring is the season of hair change. After a winter, the thick long hair begins to fall off. At this time, whether it’s human combing or dog scratching, there will be a lot of hair off. Especially after the Spring Festival, we can see a lot of hair on the ground and in the kennel every day. This is a normal physiological change. Take off the “winter clothes” to adapt to the hot summer. But if it falls too much, so that the skin is exposed, it is a skin disease. Comb and clean the shed hair every day to avoid the hair sticking on the body to form felt (that is, the hair is often knotted).

    In addition, pay attention to keep the skin clean and sanitary, otherwise, the unclean skin will itch, and the dog will scratch or rub the body with its claws to eliminate the itch, which is easy to hurt the skin and cause bacterial infection. Unclean skin also provides a place for the reproduction of parasites, fungi, etc., causing skin diseases.

    Spring is also the season of oestrus. In addition to breeding excellent purebred, pay attention to prevent unnecessary mating. Take good care of your dog and wait until you find a good breed to mate. At this time, the estrous female dogs should be managed well.

    First, it is necessary to prevent the mating, especially purebred dogs, so as not to cause the degradation of pups and cross breeding.

    Second, it is necessary to grasp the breeding opportunity to prevent the missing mating. For the female dog who is not going to keep the breed, the contraceptive operation can be considered to avoid the adverse reactions before and after the estrus. In estrus period of female dog, male dog fights with each other in order to fight for spouse, so it is necessary to prevent bites and deal with injuries in time. To prevent bleeding, it’s best to walk in a place with few dogs. In spring, microorganisms and parasites also began to move and reproduce, and infectious diseases and parasitic diseases began to occur frequently. At this time, it is necessary to carry out insect repellent and vaccination in time.

    To vaccinate pets, we should pay attention to: only healthy pets can be vaccinated. A qualified pet doctor must do clinical physical examination for the pet before injecting the vaccine, including body temperature, breath, heart rate, body surface examination and medical history inquiry. When the owner takes the pet to the hospital for vaccination, if the doctor does not check it, the injection may cause accidents. Some pets look healthy on the surface. In fact, the body has latent diseases. After vaccination, they will get sick immediately, even cause death.

    Therefore, in the physical examination before injection, all pets with high temperature or weak body temperature should not be vaccinated temporarily, and they should not be vaccinated until the body recovers or the disease recovers completely.

    Pets just bought home, especially those just bought from the market, may have contact with other sick pets, so they cannot be vaccinated immediately. Can inject first prevent serum, prevent serum to have 2 weeks immunity commonly. Two weeks later, when the pet is healthy and adapts to the new environment, it will be injected again. Pets under the age of vaccination should not be vaccinated.

    Generally, dogs over 40 days old and cats over 60 days old can be vaccinated. After vaccination, due to the reaction of the immune system, fever, mental deterioration, loss of appetite, drowsiness and other phenomena may occur, which are normal reactions, usually recover by themselves in 1-3 days.
