Comments (0)

September can be a busy month for families as children go back to school, teachers say goodbye to their summer vacations, and our pets adjust to the schedule changes that Fall brings about. It’s an important month to stay mindful about our pet’s well-being. They can experience “back to school blues” and may mope more.

How can you help keep your pet’s spirits up? Find a pet friendly event in your area to bring her/him to and spend some quality time having fun together!
