Keep Pets From Getting into School Supplies
Fall coincides with the back to school time. All this means additional stationary including glue sticks, pencils, colors and other supplies. Despite these being fairly non-toxic these days, when taken in large quantities, that can cause some harm. Pets, like children are attracted to these fun, playful supplies and so to avoid any mishaps or incidental taking in of such substances, keep them away safely, out of the reach for your pets.

Be Careful Of Poisonous Vegetation
The time right after summers is when a lot of vegetation pops up due to sudden drop in temperatures. Mushrooms and likes flourish in these kind of environs. Some of this vegetation might be very poisonous and your pets on their stroll might consume it causing severe damage to their insides. Be careful and on the guard regarding this and contact your pet as soon as you suspect your pet has consumed something toxic.

Safeguard Your Pets Against Snakes
Snakes are particularly grumpy around this time of the year as they prepare to hibernate. Your pets might encounter some of these venomous reptiles on their strolls outside. Avoid areas with overgrown wild vegetation and walk around in safer and clearer patches.

Your pet might be more hungry as the colder temperatures might require them to generate extra body heat. Take into account the changing season and their want for larger quantities of food. Make the required changes in their diet:)
Fall is also a season that sees an increase in the number of rodents. Many homeowners turn to rodenticides to tackle rodent menace. Be extra careful that your pets do not consume these poisonous substances and use these in places that are not frequented by pets. Autumn pet care includes a lot of small things, which when taken care of can result in a smooth transition from the warm to the pleasant. Also do not hesitate to call your vet in case of any confusion. Hope this fall brings a lot of cheer in your life!
