Here at Snelgrove Veterinary Services in Brampton, ON. we know that the end of summer is a sad yet exciting time of year. Routine is re-instated, kids go back to school and for our pets it is a time of change.
Many pets can suffer loneliness as September begins. Being left alone for long periods of time takes its toll on their hearts. Gone are the days of playing with the kids, lolling in the sunshine and trips to the cottage to play in the water. This is the time to make the special effort to show them extra love and attention.
Walks in the morning are a great way to spend some quality time with our pets prior to going off to school and work. Yes, it means getting up extra early, but they are worth it.
Some new toys or treat-filled brain toys for dogs and continuous action toys for cats are a great way to help them spend their time. Leaving a radio on low helps make the day not be so quiet.
Making sure when we get home after a long day, to again spend some time with them. Not just rushing in the door and starting dinner or getting ready to head out to sporting practices.
For some cats and dogs, soothing pheromones can really help to keep them calm. Products like Adaptil and Feliway mimic the smell of a mother dog or cat and provide pets with an instant sense of calm. These products come in sprays wipes and even, diffusers. Similar to plug-ins that provide room wide scent.
