It’s officially fall with the cool weather and leaves falling. Your pet is probably welcoming the break from hot, sticky weather. But beware—fall is also a time of lurking dangers for our furry friends. From household poisons to cold weather hazards, the season is one to be weary of! Here are some tips to keep your pet snug and healthy during the fall months.
- Training tip: If you and your pet haven’t been active outdoors in a while because of the summer heat, get back outside during the cooler months.
- Fall and spring and are mushroom seasons. Unfortunately, most of the highly toxic mushrooms are difficult to distinguish from the nontoxic ones, so the best way to keep pets from ingesting poisonous mushrooms is to keep them away from areas where any mushrooms are growing.
- Fall also means the welcome of Halloween. Here are some useful tips to keep our pets healthy this year: Don’t feed your pets Halloween candy, especially if it contains chocolate. Make sure you keep your cute decorations out of your pets reach and make sure to keep your pet calm during this time as many pets become scared seeing these decorations. If you plan to dress your pet up this year, be sure their costume fits properly and comfortably and doesn’t have any pieces that can be easily chewed off. Finally, as Halloween approaches, try to keep your pet calm around trick-or-treaters whether you’re out walking your dog or opening the door for trick-or-treaters.
