The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The trees are budding and blooming, weeds are sprouting and bugs are emerging, including insects that affect our pets such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes that can transmit heartworm.

One of the advantages of a cold winter is that insects that affect our pets die off in great numbers in frigid temperatures. The warm weather coupled with high moisture has created an early season for bugs, and as they multiply over the coming weeks and months pet owners should take heed and take advantage of preventative measures to keep their pets healthy. Many veterinarians are recommending that these preventatives be started as soon as possible, if you do not use them year round.

Koi

“Here are some pictures of Koi in his new home. I thought he would be a little scared at first and hide under the bed, but as soon as we got home he started roaming around the apartment, and he hasn't stopped exploring! Thanks for everything the Washington Humane Society has done for him!”

-Jarrett Gross, Koi’s new companion

Daffodil

“Where to start? She is absolutely wonderful, and I swear we fall more in love with her every day. She loves being outside, loves walks, loves other dogs and loves people.  She has a huge yard to run around in at her new home in Louisiana, plus lots of green space on the levee. She looks really healthy and stops traffic everywhere she goes.” 

-Liz Beirise, Daffodil’s adopter
