Fall Safety Tips for Animal Owners

Fall safety tips for animal owners

The cool autumn breeze calls for a shift in your animal’s needs. Show your furry friends you care by following these safety tips this season.

  1. Keep your animals warm. Most animals are well equipped to withstand the cooler weather, but providing them with extra warmth can ensure they have an easy transition into the cooler months. Give your animals a blanket to provide extra warmth all season long.
  1. Watch out for wildlife. Keep an eye out for wildlife as they are out and about scrambling to prepare for hibernation. Mind your distance and stay attentive, especially if you live in rural areas.
  1. Consider their joints. It is typical for animals to experience sore joints as the temperatures drop, especially if they already have existing joint issues. Keep an eye out for signs like limping or reluctance to exercise.
