Top Pet Health Tips for Autumn

by Pet Health Network

Ahhh, Fall! This time of year means football, crisp air, colorful foliage and even, depending on where you live, a little bit of snow. It’s a great time to get outside with your pet; for a dog, there’s nothing like a romp in the leaves, while for cats, midday sunbeams have never felt better as the days get shorter and the nights get colder. When it comes to keeping your pet healthy and helping him enjoy fall to the fullest, there are some things to keep in mind. Read on for our top fall pet tips.

#1. Watch out for ticks!

#2. Beware of rat poison and other rodenticides.

#3. Mushrooms – some of which are toxic – love fall’s damp ground.

#4. Feed your pet ample food for cooler weather, but talk to your vet first!

#5. Winterize your car, but clean up any antifreeze spills.

#6. Halloween candy is yummy! But toxic to dogs!

#7. Dog-proof your holiday decorations; dogs will investigate unfamiliar items.
