Here are some tips to keep your pets healthy during the upcoming Fall season:


  1. School supplies – it’s that time of year when school is back in session and you may have school supplies around the house as a result, such as pencils, crayons, markers and glue sticks.  While these items do not have high toxicity, if ingested by your dog or cat an intestinal blockage can occur.  To avoid this from happening, be sure to keep all school supplies out of your pets reach.
  2. With the cool, crisp weather of the fall comes the growth of mushrooms within the lawn.  While most mushrooms are not dangerous, there are a few that are highly toxic and can have life-threatening side effects.  Be sure to monitor your pet while outside to ensure they do not ingest any mushrooms.
  3. Chocolate – Halloween is a time for all to stock up on candy, especially chocolate.  Sometimes we forget that our pets are curious creatures and can manage to get into the candy and eat it.  Chocolate contains a toxic ingredient and if enough is ingested your pet can have chocolate poisoning.  This may cause serious neurological issues such as tremors or seizures.  Remember to keep those tasty treats out of reach!
