April, And Its Awareness Days Related To Animals

April 8th, 2021

April is a month packed with awareness days related to animals. This is not just so that we can celebrate but also make us stop, pause and think.

Prevent Lyme Disease in dogs month

Protect your dog the natural way with Tick Off

Lyme Disease Awareness Month follows Tick Bite Prevention Week in March. It’s a reminder to us that ticks are here and they’re not going anywhere. Ticks carry several diseases, not only the well-known Lyme disease. One of these diseases is tick-borne encephalitis (TBE). There are a few others, however, these are the two most prevalent in Europe.

According to the NHS website, the chance of catching Lyme disease from an individual tick ranges from roughly 0 to 50 percent and it depends on three factors: the tick species, where the tick came from, and how long it was biting you for. We’re all very concerned about our dogs catching ticks but we need to protect ourselves too.

What People Say...

My Welsh Terrier, Teddy, has been boarding with Jitka & Rachel at Vita Canis dog boarding kennels in Uttoxeter for many years. And I wouldn’t dream of taking him anywhere else – ever.

We always receive the warmest of welcomes when we arrive, and Teddy quickly forgets we are still there with him. He is so pleased to see the girls with whom he has bonded pawfectly as regular guest!

There are no goodbyes on offer for us when we drop him off for his holiday at Vita Canis! He’s far too excited at the prospect of his stay!!

We can leave Teddy with complete peace of mind and total confidence that he will be in the safest, kindest, most professional, and expert hands possible. It’s a home from home for Teddy in every possible way.

Vita Canis boarding kennel in Uttoxeter provides a truly individually tailored experience for each dog.

On the collection day, each dog will smell and look divine! As all Vita Canis holidaymakers are bathed and brushed before departure! An absolutely superb experience for your dog that I wholeheartedly recommend.
