Keep your furbabies healthy with Simparica Trio

To most households, dogs are more than just pets or house guardians, but are important members of the family. Thus, we also do our best to keep them happy and healthy.

Knowing what elements can be harmful to their health and how to avoid or prevent them is an important part of being a responsible pet owner.

For dogs, specifically, there are three major health concerns: heartworm, gastrointestinal worms, and ticks & fleas. A single bite from any of these parasites poses a potentially deadly disease for our pets. But what exactly are these pests that cause harm to our beloved dogs? 

The Silent Threats

Heartworm is a parasitic disease spread by mosquitos and transmitted when they feed off our dogs and can be debilitating and potentially fatal.

Meanwhile, fleas are frustrating parasites that cause allergic dermatitis, not only to pets but to humans as well, and may lead to tapeworms if carried by the pest.

Ticks on the other hand are quite small, you only notice them once they are swollen with blood. Though it can be carefully removed, infections may occur and can cause kidney-related problems.

Gastrointestinal worms come from eggs passed in the feces of infected animals, and dogs are at high risk due to their tendency to eat soil and feces. Humans are also at risk as these parasites can also be transmitted to people with dire consequences to their health. 

As dog owners, it’s best to ensure preventive measures to avoid illness rather than having it treated at the last minute. We don’t want to risk our dog’s health and cause them anxiety by being apart from us as they get wait to be cured.

However, with so many options in the market, it’s quite confusing to choose which one we should give them. Apart from having the difficulty of being presented with various options, it can also be expensive to purchase medication for each health concern.

Furthermore, having our dogs take different supplements for each health concern may pose a danger if an owner proceeds without the proper guidance as some ingredients may not be safe to be taken at the same time.

Doggie Defense Made Fun (and Chewable!)

Aiding with these concerns is Simparica Trio, the first monthly chewable supplement that provides complete protection for your dog with three proven ingredients designed for defense.

A highly efficient medication, this yummy and chewable tablet is only needed to be taken once a month to defend your fur babies from heartworm, gastrointestinal worms, and ticks & fleas.

Distributed by Zoetis, a global animal health company that has made it their goal to improve your dog’s quality of life, Simparica Trio is a brand that understands that canine preventative health is a must for every dog owner.

This preventative supplement not only ensures that your dog is taken care of but has taken immense steps in helping fur parents further show their love and care for their babies.

This easy-to-use tablet is an FDA-approved prescription product that is deemed safe for puppies as young as 8 weeks old (weighing at least 2.8 lbs) and guarantees 100% satisfaction that will keep your worries at bay.

Being a dog owner is not something to be taken lightly. However, it is life-changing and an incredibly rewarding experience… as long as you’re ready for the responsibility it comes with.

Giving your dogs lots of love, companionship, regular exercise, and a healthy diet are parts of an owner’s responsibility. Add in regular check-ins at the vet and routine medical care, and you’re sure to have a fulfilling and happy life with your fur buddies. 

Visit your veterinarian and ask for guidance on the proper use of Simparica Trio as you continue your dog’s journey to a healthier, happier life. 

Simparica Trio comes in the following variants: 2.5 to 5 kg dogs, 5 to 10 kg dogs, 10 to 20 kg dogs, and 20 to 40 kg dogs, as prescribed by veterinarians.

Celebrate the holidays with your doggos

Dogs are not just pets for most households. They are part of the family and are involved in activities and household decisions. This is especially true for the Christmas season when everyone gets together and spends time with their loved ones. If you’re looking for ways to treat your doggos for the holidays, here are five simple things you can do so they can also have a jolly Christmas:

Take them out to admire the holiday decor

Dogs will love the colorful explosion of Christmas lights and decor, so try to schedule your walks in the evening. Let them explore this new version of the neighborhood, but always keep them on a leash so they don’t get too close and damage the decor or hurt themselves.

Snap holiday photos with them

Cap off 2020 with a cute photoshoot with your furbaby. The year may have been tough but you can snap some holiday photos to have fond memories amid uncertain times. The photos can be shot anywhere, but you can make it more “extra” by having your dogs wear costumes. Matching Christmas sweaters will always be a hit and guaranteed likes and tons of “awww” when you post photos on social media.

Get them a gift

Part of the Christmas tradition is to give gifts and there’s no reason why your dog shouldn’t get one too. Maybe it’s time to get a new set of toys or a more comfortable bed? You can also get them more of their favorite treats so they have something to look forward to every day.

Extend cuddle time

They say some of the best gifts aren’t material things and the same could be applied to dogs. Make their Christmas more special by giving them more cuddles. The cold weather is the perfect time to snuggle up under a blanket while watching a movie.

Upgrade to a healthier diet

improving their food. Ideally, their diet should consist of delicious yet nutritious dishes so they stay healthy. Tasty dog food will make them think there’s a special occasion every day.
