Autumn is a great time of year for your dog, with falling leaves to forage through and lots of new things to explore, but it has its problems too. Falling leaves can hide all kinds of dangers in the grass, from sharp thorns and twigs to much worse – barbed wire is a constant threat in rural places and snakes – adders bite mainly in the spring and summer, but a warm autumn can mean they bask in fallen leaves. Your Cardiff dog groomer will check your pup’s paws, but you should also make sure there are no wounds or bites after every walk.
If your pet is a bit of a scrounger, be careful when you go for walks in autumn, because often the ground is littered with fallen fruit. A little apple or pear is okay, but too much can give problems and pips, skin and incidental twigs can be quite dangerous, not to mention drowsy wasps which might get hoovered up. Top Chepstow dog groomers Mucky Pups will tell you if they find any sting sites when they are pampering your dog, but again, you should check after every walk, especially if your dog shows signs of distress around the mouth.
