- Be mindful of rodent poison. Rodents are likely to make their way into your home during this time of year. You may be tempted to leave poison out in the open, but your pets can get into them with fatal results. Make sure you place the poison in areas that your pets cannot get into, like cupboards and cabinets, or in rooms that stay closed off.
- Watch their food intake. During the summer, pets are more active outdoors and burn more energy which can cause them to eat a bit more. Fall and winter can mean less activity and increased decadent foods available. Be sure to watch your pet’s diet and ensure they are getting enough exercise during these cooler months. Consult a veterinarian before making changes to your pets’ diet, as every animal has different needs.
- Beware of chocolate. Chocolate consumption goes up during the cooler months with the celebration of many holidays. Keep your trick-or-treat buckets out of reach from mischievous, hungry pets.
- Avoid bones. You may be tempted to give your pooch a turkey bone from your Thanksgiving feast. Most bones are actually a choking hazard to dogs.
- Be mindful of decorations. Keep your decorations up high or out of pet’s reach to avoid accidental knock downs or ingestion. Your pet may not be familiar with the painted pumpkins, stuffed turkey décor, and fake snow in your home.
- Clean up the anti-freeze. When you winterize your vehicle, make sure to thoroughly clean up every bit of anti-freeze. It has a sweet smell that draws in pets. However, a very small amount can kill pets.
