Fall Allergens
Seasonal allergies are usually associated with springtime, but fall is also an important season. The most common autum allergens are molds (from decaying plant materials) and ragweed pollen.

Owners can proactively avoid frustration by limiting their dog ís exposure.







Stay away from un-mowed grass
Clean up leaves and other decaying matter promptly
Avoid morning, take advantage of rain
Brush the dog down when returning indoors and bathe frequently
Talk to a veterinarian about managing allergies

Spaying or Neutering Your Pet
Animal shelters are being overwhelmed with the growing population of stray and unwanted pets, many who do not find a home. Spaying or neutering your pet ensures you will not be adding to the tremendous burden of caring for unfortunate animals.

You and your pet will also benefit from spaying or neutering. Your pet’s temperament and health will improve and there will be a reduction in the tendency to stray from home.
