When the days are getting shorter, your dogs should wear reflective vests, leads and collars for their early morning and after work walks. Cats too should have high visibility collars to be seen in the dark. We have reflective wear in stock, including rechargeable LED options. Also, if you are in an rural area where hunting is allowed, please make sure all your pets (as well as horses and people) wear blaze orange gear so they’ll be safe.
Here’s some tips to make seasonal transitions easier for your pets! Now’s the time to change up the proteins to warming meats like beef, duck and venison and add veggies like carrots, parsnips, and darker greens. If you’ve turned on the heat in your home, start adding fish oil to the diet to keep their skin supple. Hair is already getting thicker so bring your dog in so we can de-shed the old hair to make room for the new. And as you’re putting your garden to bed for the season, make sure your pets don’t eat the compost. Especially apple cores and pumpkin seeds, which never work out well for their digestion (or your carpet, yuk).
