Most people love the time change, especially in the fall, because it means an extra hour of sleep. This is something that the majority of us look forward to. However, we are not the only ones going through these changes. You may wonder if time changes can affect your pets in any way, which is something to think about and consider. You can contact your local Rockford-area veterinarian as listed below or one closest to your home to determine if there are any changes to be aware of in your pets during a time change.
If your dog is like most, it has a built in timer: time to wake up daily, whether you work or not, time to eat each AM and PM, time for the evening snack, times to go outside regularly and time to retire for the evening. Everything they do is linked to your schedule, so what happens when that schedule alters due to a time change. The pet’s inner clock gets all mixed up! Everything a pet does is learned through a routine.
When your routine changes, you adapt easily, but your pet may have unusual behavior because of misunderstanding. Just because you want to sleep that extra hour does not mean your pup can wait longer to go out or eat. Your pet may end up having accidents just because a change in schedules and routines.
With the time change, ensure that you are aware of your pet’s behavior. You may have to alter your schedule a little; sleep a little less and change food times, walks, etc. in order to keep your pet on track. It may not be necessary to change anything since most pets are quite adaptable and may actually appreciate an extra hour of sleep; not so sure about a kitty who expects food on demand! There goes your extra time to snooze! Most animals reflect off of their owners and schedules but if you need to help your pet through changing times, read Ideal Dog Schedule. This may present you some tips on how to go with the flow of the time changes and your pets inner clock!
