DID YOU KNOW:

By buying your preventions from your local veterinarian (that's us!), you are protected by the manufacturer?  That's right.  If you consistently purchase and administer preventions purchased through us (Flea/Tick and Heartworm) and your pet becomes ill with a parasite, the manufacturer will pay for treatment.  This guarantee cannot be made by manufacturer to big box pet stores.  So, stay protected and buy from your local vet!!

FUN AND SAFE WAYS TO CELEBRATE FALL WITH YOUR PETS

AND FALL HAZARDS TO BEWARE

The dog days of summer are behind us and the beautiful wonders, sights and smells of fall are here!  As the weather starts to cool off and the leaves on the trees change to their spectacular colors, there is an abundance of fall activities.  There are lots of fun fall activities both cats and dogs can enjoy and it will make the season more festive.

And, fall is a great time for pet parents to start thinking about pet exercise and enrichment.  Fall brings cooler temperatures and human lives get busier with school, holidays and such, our pets might not get out as much as they did in the spring and summer seasons.  Did you know that the shorter days and the cooler temperatures can even cause mood changes in your pets similar to human seasonal affective disorder?  All the more reasons to make sure to involve your pet in some fall activities to keep them happy, entertained, healthy and well-loved this fall.

Here are just a few ideas:

1.  ENJOY THE BRISK WEATHER WITH A HIKE:  Take your dog (or cat) along on a hike or brisk walk to enjoy the beautiful fall scenery.  This is good to make sure your pet is getting exercise as the temperature drops and give them extra enrichment with new sights, sounds and smells.

2.  MAKE BACKYARD CHORES FUN:  I know, raking leaves does not usually rate high on the fun meter, but it could turn out to be super fun for your furry companion.  So, rake up a small pile-free from rocks and sticks so they do not get injured-and encourage your pet to dive in!

3.  DRESS UP FOR HALLOWEEN:  People aren't the only ones who can dress up for Halloween!  Pet costumes are also adorable and tons of fun.  Get creative and put together a costume for your furry friend.  Check to see if there are any parades, costume contests or trick or treating for pets in your area.

4.  VISIT A FARMERS' MARKET:  Find a pet friendly local farmers' market and take your four legged friends to enjoy the crisp Autumn air and for the change of scenery.  You are likely to find delicious treats for humans and pets!

5. MAKE A FESTIVE FALL PET TREAT:  Lots of our fall favorite foods such as pumpkin, sweet potatoes, berries and apples, to name a few, are also safe for our pets to eat.  Treat your cat or dog to a yummy fall snack using a pet friendly recipe.  Just be sure to calculate these treats into your pet's daily calorie count and double check with your veterinarian if you are unsure of whether pets can eat a particular food safely.

6.  SNUGGLE UP AT HOME:  Sometimes one of the best fall activities to do with your pets is not active or outside.  It is calm and indoors!  As the seasons change, give yourself time to relax and unwind.  One of the best ways to do that is to snuggle up with your furry friend and make them feel loved too.  Maybe curl up with a blanket, some apple cider and a spooky movie and enjoy some chill time with your family and your pets.

Fall provides endless opportunities to have fun with your pets.  But also please pay attention to your pet's health needs, too.  Keep a watchful eye out for fall dangers-here are some to be mindful of:

1.  Rodenticides and other cold weather poisons-such as anti-freeze and mothballs

2.  Mushrooms, acorns, blue-green algae, etc.

3.   Ragweed, pollen and mold, dust-fall seasonal allergies

4.  Fleas and ticks-it is a myth that fall and winter bring relief from these parasites

These are just some of the hazards that the fall season brings to your beloved pets.  By combining fall activities with wellness, you and your pet are sure to have a fantastic season!
