Summer may be a good season for your dog to be running around, exercising, and going to parks for strolls.

Going camping with your dog is a good idea, especially with the right amount of preparation. Camping with your dog can greatly improve the bond between you and your furry friend.

When you camp with your dog, the attention you pay to its traits are heightened, and you will start seeing traits that you've never noticed before. Your dog will also benefit from a camping experience. It's their chance to get outside, roam around, and be exposed to its natural habitat; the outdoors.

Maximising Overall Dog Health In Summer

Summer is a great time for you and your dog to get out and about, but the key to maximising your dogs health during the summer months is all about careful planning.

If you are thinking about taking your pooch out in the car, plan ahead and under no circumstances leave them alone in a car, not even in a shaded position as this does not provide enough cover for them.

Unfortunately, it is a sad fact that leaving a dog alone in a car during the summer months even for a few minutes can prove fatal.

Perhaps the most important thing to remember during the scorching days of summer is to keep water out for your dog to prevent dehydration. Fill the bowl whenever you see it's empty, and think about adding a couple of ice cubes to keep the water cool.

If you have a big dog or multiple dogs, consider one of those devices that has a water reservoir that drips down into a dish. Just like human beings dogs need lots of water to stay hydrated in the heat. No matter where you go, make sure that your dog has fresh water available.

Other ways to keep them cool may include:

  • Provide them with a paddling pool
  • Put on a garden sprinkler
  • Have damp towels for them to lie on

Also, try to limit the amount of time your dog spends in direct sunlight and provide shade for them to lie in. This will protect them from a heat stroke and from getting sunburned.

The good news is most good pet stores provide specially formulated sunscreen for dogs, so think about investing in some especially if you have a paler dog, and apply especially around the nose and ears where they are most vulnerable.

The Brain Benefits And Immunity Boosting Benefits Of Supplements

Supplements need to be administered on a daily basis and work effectively to remove toxins from the body and sustain the dog's immune system.

As important as supplements for dogs are, they can only work if they are included as part of an overall health and fitness routine. Along with a proper diet, this includes regular access to a clean water source, ideally in a metal or glass bowl to avoid toxins in plastics. It also includes plenty of exercises to keep your dog's whole body functioning properly.

Supplements don't replace the missing nutrients in your pet's diet. They are meant to act as a catalyst for an all-natural diet, helping to break down food and carrying the nutrients through the body.

Glucosamine Supplements

Veterinarians strongly recommend these supplements because they naturally heal the underlying cause of arthritis and joint pain. They are very popular with pet owners because of their overwhelming success in improving their pet's health and happiness.

Glucosamine is the essential building block for healthy cartilage. Glucosamine supplements enable dogs struggling with joint pain, to naturally make more cartilage. This rebuilds and repairs the cartilage cushion between the bones in a joint. The bones stop grinding painfully together, producing wonderful improvements in mobility and happiness.

The best glucosamine supplements have additional ingredients like Chondroitin Sulfate, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and Hyaluronic Acid. These multiply the benefits of glucosamine.
