Dog daycare and other Pet Care tips for the Fall season

Dog daycare and other pet care services including dog walking become busier around this time, so it is important to plan ahead in making arrangements for the fall. Not only do arrangements become busier in the fall, but we also see more school supplies! Many school items are considered low toxicity to pets, however, if ingested they could still gastrointestinal problems. Toxic markers, pencil sharpeners, glue. wire-bound notebooks, etc can also be hazards to pets.

Speaking of eating, when it comes to your pet’s own food, cooler temperatures may mean more food is required for energy to stay warm. Early in the season, your pet will start to shed their summer coat to allow room for the winter coat. Grooming your pet will help with the hair you find everywhere, as well as your pet’s health. The frequency of grooming will depend on your pet’s needs, but doing so will help with healthy skin, coat, ears and overall health. Drier air caused by heating can also impact pets, causing skin irritation, allergy flare-ups, and other discomfort.

Another cute aspect is bundling up for fall. Help make sure your pet is dry and warm. However, watch out for other negative signs as well. Pets can be effected when you turn on the furnace, particularly if their cages, crates, tanks, or aquariums may be near vents. Also watch out for signs of stiffness and other indicators of arthritis.
