Autumn is a beautiful time of year here in Ontario. This is a great time to enjoy seasonal activities, like visiting corn mazes, enjoying fresh apples, and choosing Halloween costumes. As it turns out, Fido also has a to-do list. A Brampton, ON vet suggests some things your pooch may have planned in this article.
Go For A Walk
Our foliage is stunning, and those crisp days are a perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy some fresh air. Grab a mug of tea or coffee, and take Fido to a park or trail!
There’s never a bad time to get pet photos. However, autumn’s colorful foliage can really make for some gorgeous photos. Snap a few pictures of your canine pal.
Dogs with thin fur will need a sweater or jacket for cooler days. Go through Fido’s wardrobe, and make sure that everything is still in good condition and fits well.
Once winter sets in, Fido will probably be spending a lot of time indoors. Take advantage of those last warm days and indulge your canine companion with some rounds of a fun game, like Fetch.
Grooming isn’t only important for aesthetics; it’s also crucial to your furry pal’s health and comfort. Dead fur and dander will make Fido’s coat itchy, and will decrease the insulating properties of his fur. Give him a good bath, or take him to the salon.
Door Doggy Duties
Fido takes his door doggy duties very seriously. Your pooch could find himself working overtime around Halloween, especially if you get a lot of visitors. If your canine friend gets worked up when the doorbell rings, put him in a quiet back room with food, toys, and treats until the stream of trick-or-treaters ebbs.
Have A Seasonal Treat
Fido probably won’t care for a pumpkin spice latte, but he can have some pumpkin doggy treats. Combine pureed pumpkin with natural peanut butter, whole-wheat flour, and an egg. Divide the mixture into small portions, and bake for 40 minutes at 175.
Fido hasn’t earned the title of Man’s Best Friend for nothing. Your furry bff really wants nothing more than to hang out with you 24/7. Spend some quality time with your pup!Please contact us, your Brampton, ON vet clinic, for all of your pet’s veterinary care needs. We’re here to help!
