Fall Pet Tips  

WATCH OUT FOR TICKS
  • With the changing season, it's important to remember that ticks are still around! Many species of ticks are still around, and some can even survive the first frost. Be sure to check for ticks regularly, and continue using flea/tick medications, especially if you spend time outdoors enjoying hiking, camping, or hunting. 


ALLERGIES

  • The changing seasons can bring about allergies for our pets. Mold, grass, and dust are common aggravates. Watch your pet for signs like biting, chewing, scratching, sneezing, and rashes. 


CHOCOLATE AND HARTY FOODS

  • With the holiday seasons coming up, it's always good to remember to keep the chocolate and sweets far away from our pets! Although some foods aren’t technically considered toxic to pets it doesn’t mean they’re safe. Rich, high-fat foods can cause stomach problems such as diarrhea and gastroenteritis and even more serious conditions such as pancreatitis.


WATCH OUT FOR PLANTS AND FUNGI

  • With the cooler temperatures and moisture comes the perfect conditions for fungi to grow. Though they may seem tempting to our pets as a snack, many can be very toxic! Even some mushrooms that are safe for human consumption can be toxic to our pets. Its best to keep all mushrooms away. Some berries can also be toxic, such as chokecherries. Be sure to watch what your pets are getting into in the outdoors!  


BRUSHING AND GROOMING

  • Some dogs shed their coats in the fall in preparation for the cooler winter temperatures. Brushing your pet regularly will not only help keep your home fur-free, but it will also make your pet feel great, avoid tangled fur, and help the two of you bond.
