Clocks Spring Ahead! Time to Adjust Pet Medication Schedules and Other Seasonal Tips

Example : If your pet had been receiving their dosages at 7:30 AM before DST, then under the first day of the new time, give it to them at 8:00 AM*; then do the same for the PM dosage. On the second day, you can return back to the norm
