As the days start to become shorter and the nights longer, you know that fall is coming. It is a great season to go on long walks, as you get to see leaves in different colors. The cool night makes it a great time to spend outdoors.
Due to the change in season, it is
crucial you get your pet ready so that it can handle the difference in the
climate. Given below are the list of things you must do so that your
four-legged friend will love the drop in temperature:
Change walk time and food
Summer was a great season to spend time
with your pet outdoors. However, due to the higher temperatures during the
middle of the day, you had to adjust the time you take your pet for a walk.
Most people prefer the early morning or
the night to be active with their four-legged friends. However, this is no

maintain it, there is a high chance the pet will suffer from skin and bacteria
infections. Once this becomes a problem, it will take quite some time to
eliminate this issue completely.
The best thing to prevent these types of
infections is to groom the fur of your pet regularly. Once you let the hair
