November Tips for Pets and Pet Parents


Novemdog-in-snowber is a beautiful time of the year! There are many things to look forward to in the month of November: lovely trees, great tasting food and thanksgiving memories. You can even perhaps get a glimpse of snow – if you’re so lucky.

What does November mean to you? Do you love it or hate it? How about your pets? How do they feel about the changing weather and shorter days? With only two months left in 2016, we’d like to celebrate this month by offering a few November suggestions for you and your pet. Some of these topics will be covered in later blog posts this month and some are meant as food for thought.

If you have any tips or questions for our pet-lovin’ experts, please let us know by messaging us on our Facebook page. We look forward to hearing from you!

November Tips for Pets and Pet Parents:

  • Take advantage of the cooler weather. Do you live in an area where the weather is now getting tolerable and more pleasant? Walk your dogs a few extra times a week in November. You and your pet will most likely appreciate the fall sights and smells.
  • Take note of what foods are acceptable for your pet to eat around the festivities. Do you have Halloween chocolates sitting around the house? Some thanksgiving foods are dangerous to pets, too. Keep a close eye on your pets this month to make sure they are not eating anything they’re not supposed to.
  • It might be time to buy a sweater or booties for your pet. With the leaves falling and snow on its way (in some parts of the country) you might consider preparing for the colder days. Pets get snow stuck between their paws or in their fur. Would a pair of booties help? Think ahead and be proactive this time of the year.
  • November is Senior Pet Month. There are many things to appreciate and keep in mind in regards to senior pets. This month, try to think about those things and make changes in your pet’s lifestyle if necessary. You might want to ask yourself questions like, would your pet benefit from a joint care supplement? We can help you with that.
  • Don’t forget about your pets during the holidays. There are many ways to celebrate with your furry friends. A lot of stores will offer special holiday food for pets or holiday gifts! You can even pack a stocking for your four-legged friends. Consider putting in a few products from Essential Pet. Help your pet stay happy and healthy this year.
  • November is Animal Shelter Appreciation Month. If interested, consider volunteering or making a donation to your favorite animal shelter. Did you get your pet from a local animal shelter? There are multiple reasons to show your gratitude to an animal shelter.
