Cooler weather brings out all our fall favorites, but it also carries some dangers for our furry best friends. So help keep your dog healthy and safe this fall by being aware of some risks the cooler weather brings.
To get ahead of their allergies, help your dog out by giving them regular baths to help rinse away allergens and soothe their itchy skin. You can also wipe their paws every time they come inside to help keep the allergens from being tracked inside.
And did you know that certain fruits and nuts that fall have toxic seeds? For example, apples, plums, and apricots contain harmful seeds, and acorns contain tannic acid, which can cause upset stomachs and can cause liver and kidney damage.
To keep your dog safe, keep them away from wildly growing mushrooms. This might mean checking your yard daily to remove any wild mushrooms growing. And it’s also the perfect time to pick up any fallen fruits that might contain toxic seeds.
Antifreeze is a sweet-smelling liquid that only takes a few licks to kill a small or medium-sized dog. Ensure your dog stays away from this; make sure they don’t drink from puddles or streams where antifreeze may have a runoff.
Just as antifreeze is dangerous for your pet, so are many mouse and rat poisons available. They can be toxic and deadly if ingested. To avoid this, use a non-toxic alternative like cayenne pepper and peppermint soap or mouse traps that kill instantly.
To keep your dog safe, don’t back off on their flea prevention. Instead, use a flea preventative throughout the season to keep those pests away.
To keep your dog safe, keep your dog out of the room while you unpack and then dispose of the mothballs carefully, ensuring you don’t lose any. And then, as you pack up your summer clothes, try non-toxic alternatives like cedar balls or even lavender sachets.
Though some nuts are safe, some are toxic, and almost all nuts are high in fat. High-fat foods can lead to obesity and pancreatic issues in dogs.
Keep the Halloween candy out of reach, and the table scraps off the floor to keep your dog healthy!
To keep your dog safe, be more alert on your walks. Consider using a reflective collar or safety vest when you are out in the dark.
Fall can be a favorite time for everyone, but let’s make sure we keep our favorite pup happy and healthy.
