Whilst most of us are dusting off the sunglasses and remembering what bare legs look like in anticipation of summer, some four legged members of the Great British public will be less excited as the mercury rises. That’s because for many cats and dogs, the summer months signal the onset of misery as high pollen counts and an increase in temperature cause them to suffer from sometimes debilitating skin conditions. This year, Dorwest Herbs is stepping in to offer a beacon of hope that is brighter than the sun for these animals and their owners with their ‘Happy In Their Skin’ campaign, centred around for skin conditions in dogs and cats.

Starting on the 13th May, Dorwest are offering pet owners ‘Skin Twin Packs’, available in small, medium or large, containing their Garlic and Fenugreek Tablets and Mixed Vegetable Tablets at an incredible 20% discount price*. Both products are proven to provide symptomatic relief for skin conditions in dogs and cats, with the effects boosted when given together. Available online at www.dorwest.com, the tablets provide an effective and gentle way of combatting common signs of skin complaints, including scratching, constant licking and redness. Pet owners must also never forget just how important adequate parasite control is and should ask their vet for advice if concerned about their pet.

The next chapter in Merlin the Dorwest dog’s shambolic life goes to prove that any pet can be struck down with skin disease. He thinks that it’s just

the gorgeous Lola that has got him all hot and bothered but soon realises that actually, it’s his skin. Constant itching leaves him pretty fed up and events turn serious when Merlin resorts to drastic measures to try and save face. Read all of his ‘real-time’ exploits on the Merlin Takes Control mockumentary blog at http://merlintakescontrol.wordpress.com.

It is worth keeping an eye on the Dorwest Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Dorwest) and Twitter feed (@Dorwest) as there are numerous ‘Happy In My Skin’ kits to be won every week. Containing goodies including picnic blankets, food bowls, O’Tom Tick Twisters and wheat free, organic treats from Lily’s Kitchen, as well as Dorwest Garlic and Fenugreek Tablets, Mixed Vegetable Tablets and Organic Comfrey & Calendula Balm, the kits will provide you with all that you and your dog need for a relaxing summer. Dorwest’s regular Facebook ‘Ask The Expert’ slot will also be taking a distinctly skin based direction over the next few months too, so join the team at 1pm every Friday for live answers to your Dorwest product questions.

As part of the campaign, Dorwest are looking for a dog that is completely ‘Happy In Their Skin’. They don’t have to be the prettiest, cleverest or funniest pooch in the world but if you have a photo of your pet that demonstrates just how totally at one they are with themselves, submit it to the Dorwest Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dorwest) for the chance to win a luxury two night weekend break at The Old Swan & Minster Mill in the beautiful Cotswolds for two and their dog, worth a staggering £575. Dinner is included for one night, not forgetting a ‘dog’s dinner’ for your canine buddy too! Ten runners up will win a ‘Happy In My Skin’ kit. The competition kicks off on the 1st May and will run for five weeks, so get snapping!

Dorwest Herbs Managing Director, Jo Boughton-White says; “Summer should be a carefree and fun time for everyone, including our pets. We hope that everyone will join Dorwest in their mission to make sure that every cat and dog are ‘Happy In Their Skin’, every day.”
