Springtime! Green grass, warm weather, long days … ticks and fleas, foxtails and rattlesnakes! Got to take the good with the bad, so while we are out enjoying the nice weather, we need to be on the lookout for the “stickers” that can make a great day go bad for our pets. Insect pests have been particularly annoying this spring. Ticks are especially dangerous as they can transmit diseases that can be life-threatening – even some that transfer to humans. Prevention is key to preventing tick-borne disease. To learn more, read Pet Health Network’ article, 8 Tips for Keeping Your Dog Free From Tick Borne Disease.

While we often think of foxtails as getting into ears, eyes, toes and noses (and that is certainly problem enough!) remember that the pointy little seed heads can also burrow into your pets’ skin and cause abscesses, or can even travel into the body cavity of your pet and cause life-threatening inflammation. Routine inspection and grooming is vital to getting to the foxtail before it gets to your pet! Rattlesnakes are also a danger to pets that roam outdoors. Be careful about letting your dog dig or nose around under rocks or logs where rattlesnakes like to rest. If you feel your dog is at risk, ask your veterinarian about the rattlesnake venom vaccine.

Spring is a busy season at Rainbow Ag. Of course, the clothing department is full of fun spring and summer styles for the whole family, and the livestock department is buzzing as 4H and FFA members prepare for the first shows and Fairs, but don’t forget that the garden and irrigation departments are fully stocked with everything you need to get your yard in barbecue-party shape! Using a drip irrigation system takes that daily watering chore out of your hands, and is a water-saving boon too. Drip irrigation can also be used to handle some other little chores such as keeping your bird bath or dog-water bowl filled automatically, or creating a mister area to cool off sensitive plants and animals! Don’t know where to start with building an irrigation system for your yard? Just ask one of Rainbow’s irrigation specialists and they will help you design the perfect system for your situation, whether it’s a few potted plants on the deck or an entire vineyard!
