Spring is upon us and that means warmer weather – so ticks, fleas and other bugs are trying to sink their choppers into our beloved pets: YUCK! Actually, it didn’t even feel like we had a winter! It seemed like we only had a handful of days where the temps dropped into the teens! While I prefer the warmer weather, I do not prefer icky bugs chomping down on my canine companions! Our dogs need extra protection and there are products that can help with that! Flea the Scene by Happytails, an EcoWellDog brand, is one of the best products I have had the pleasure of trying out on the girls. Instead of the horrible smell that usually accompanies all-natural sprays aimed at knocking the socks off of those pesky critters, Flea the Scene has a pleasant aroma!
