Holy guacamole it seems like in the blink of an eye, the weather turned from chewy to crisp! That fall air is awesome, and man…I gotta say it feels great to put on a sweater and my fav pair of jeans! I’ve been spending a lot of time outside with the dogs, doing a lot of pack walks to help further along Sardine’s integration with Boss and Lasagna (they’re doing great!).
Anyhoo, it dawned on me that a lot of times we associate a lot of toxins and poisons with the warmer weather months. I decided to do some research on it, and like I assumed, we have to watch out for some stuff in the colder months as well. Below is an info-graphic for you that I found on pethealthnetwork.com, of 5 Fall Toxins to watch out for. Click the button for the full sized version. And of course, if you are concerned that your dog has got into any of the toxins listed here OR anything else call your vet immediately or ASPCA Poison Control at (888) 426-4435.
The single MOST effective way to prevent your dog from getting sick, or worse, is to prevent them to having access. Keep the garage closed, trash stashed away, food in cabinets where it can not be reached and doors shut to rooms that contain items that may be toxic!
You LOVE your dog…so do it! It’s a total easy way to protect them.
