Banyan Bay offers pet-friendly Coconut Creek, FL apartments that are perfect for pet-owners. We even have two fenced on-site dog parks for your canine companions to run and play! Not to mention, our spacious layouts make any apartment at Banyan Bay a great option for you and your pet to call home. Make sure your precious pup maintains a healthy and happy lifestyle by preparing for the autumn season.
With the beginning of back-to-school season comes school supply shopping. This means parents and students stock up on glue sticks, pencils, magic markers, etc. Be sure to store these items somewhere pets cannot easily access. If ingested, school supplies can easily become choking hazards or cause gastrointestinal upset in pets.
Another aspect of pet care is nutrition. Veterinarians suggest increasing your pet’s food intake by 10% during months with cooler weather. This will help you pup regulate its system better. This is especially true if you keep your dog active and take it out often for walks or runs. It’s important to also monitor what foods you are keeping in your luxury apartment. During fall, seasonal foods can pose a health risk to your pets. This does not end with the assortment of chocolates you have on hand for Halloween. Other highly caloric foods like desserts, fatty meats, bones, gravies, casseroles, and seasoned sides can make your dog sick. So, don’t be tempted to give your dog scraps from your Thanksgiving meal!
Changing weather also means considering preventative medications for your pup. It’s possible for your dog to have fleas and ticks, even during the autumn. Remain vigilant and keep on top of your dog’s usual flea and tick treatments. Did you know dogs can suffer from allergies just like humans? While spring is infamous for releasing allergens in the air, any change in the weather can agitate your pet’s allergies. If your dog is sneezing or develops a skin rash, take you pup to the vet to see if it needs a prescribed antihistamine.
