Pet tip


You can help keep your dog clean and reduce shedding with frequent brushing. Check for fleas and ticks daily during warm weather. Most dogs don't need to be bathed more than a few times a year. Before bathing, comb or cut out mats from the coat. Carefully rinse all soap out of the coat, or the dirt will stick to soap residue.

For more information, visit the Humane Society of Washington County Tuesday through Saturday at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown. To become a volunteer, call Margaret Rhoads at 301-733-2060, ext. 212.
