Description:Caption:
Keeping your furry pets healthy includes keeping them clean, as well. Together, this family was in the process of washing their Labrador retriever outside in the fresh air. The mother, young daughter and son, were soaping down the dog’s coat, while the father was steadying the pet using a leash and his hand.

By washing down his coat, chances for the animal to bring contaminants indoors, is highly reduced. After returning from the outdoors, pets can bring allergens, disease vectors such as ticks and fleas, and pathogens from other animals indoors, thereby exposing the entire family to these dangers. One should remember to wash his, or her hands, after finishing this activity.
