Tails are Waggin’ About:
Your pet’s “seasonal inner clock” starts changing when the days get shorter, not necessarily when the temperature changes. Already now, they are “blowing coat” — shedding the old coat to get ready for winter coat growth. These variable temperature months can be tough for pets, so make sure they get some extra care! Now’s the time to book your fall grooming appointment, which includes our special de-shedding treatment, smoothing those rough paws and elbows and making sure those nails are properly trimmed and ground for more time indoors. Fleas and ticks will still be a problem until the first frost, so check their skin frequently. Fall is also the time to make some changes in your pet’s diet and begin choosing “transitional proteins” before the cooler weather begins. September 21 marks a big food energy shift, so come see us and let us help you make adjustments to the meats and vegetables your pet should be eating.
Summer’s great for pets – extra play time, fun vacations, lots of attention from the kids. But when school starts, a different family schedule can cause some anxiety, restlessness and neediness. Even the sense of responsibility a dog has for looking after kids can cause behavior changes, especially if the he’s not sure why his “best friend” has left him at home. To make this adjustment easier, try out your new pet schedule before your kids go back to school. Plan play activities, walks and meals at the time your kids might be either going to or coming home from school. If you’re planning dog day care during the week, take them a few times now to get them oriented. Plan fun activities for the evenings and weekends that include your dogs. Remember, when your kids go away to school, it affects your animals too. We have many products that will help your pets deal with with separation anxiety and sadness from missing the kids.
