Pet Words of Wisdom – Let’s get the dogs out


April is here! Baseball season is underway, the grass is greening up, the trees are leafing out and the fish are jumping. That also means that it’s time to get our dogs out and moving.

Here at Dog Patch we have all kinds of new toys to keep even the hardest to please dogs busy and happy. Don’t forget a new leash or harness for the long walks ahead.

Unfortunately, it’s also flea and tick season. We have everything from Frontline to a great all natural product calls Wondercide. Do not forget to visit your vet for heartworm prevention. That visit is a small piece of what it would cost to treat your dog if it gets heartworm.

Here in Naperville, it’s a chicken’s world. We have both regular and organic chick starter, grower and layer. We have food grade diatomaceous earth to naturally control both internal and external parasites. We have live and dried mealworms for protein rich treats!

Don’t forget your pond. We are ready to treat your water and fill your pond with fish. Maybe a tadpole or two.

And for local anglers, Dog Patch has night crawlers, meal worms, wax worms, dilly worms and minnows.

Last, but always first on my mind, come meet and rescue a dog or cat. Your heart will grow from the experience!
