TIP #1

TIP #2 Autumn is the time of the year where rodents seek warmth and often find it on our homes. Be careful with rat poison as many brands are harmful to dogs and cats. Talk to your veterinarian about methods of pest control that are safe for your pets. TIP #3 While it isn’t quite Winter temperatures, don’t leave your pets outside for prolonged periods of time. Smaller animals, puppies as well as senior pets are more likely to feel the cold, even in Autumn.
