With warmer weather comes a lot more than fresh grass and flowering trees. Fleas and ticks are in fact present and can be a nuisance for everyone. Not only do they cause irritation to your pet's skin when they bite it, but they also carry disease.

How do pets get fleas and ticks?
Unfortunately, fleas are quite pervasive, as they can be carried to other dogs; they can be in the grass, at your home, or even in boarding or grooming facilities. If your dog is not protected against fleas and ticks, there are many ways he can be exposed.

Ticks, on the other hand, always come from outside. I'm in the tall grass. If you live near fields or in wooded areas, your dogs can pick them up as they walk or run around these areas.

Can my pet get fleas and ticks if he is primarily an indoor dog?
Yes, because even dogs who are mainly indoors have to go out to go to the bathroom. Fleas and ticks can also be found on porches and decks, and other times friends and neighbors bring dogs to your home and these pets could carry fleas and ticks. And if you have a cat outdoors, this is another way your dog might be exposed, even if the dog just goes out to do his business.

Not only are fleas and ticks disease carriers, but they can also get caught in your pet's ears, causing severe irritation and infection.

    What happens if the dog eats some chocolate?

    Unlike us humans, dogs do not have the enzymes necessary to metabolize cocoa, in particular two substances contained in it, theobromine which has toxic effects on both dogs and cats, and caffeine. Dark chocolate is even more toxic because the theobromine level is even higher there as there is a higher percentage of cocoa than milk chocolate or white chocolate.
