When is Daylight Savings Time this year? This  Sunday, November 3, 2013, it’s time to adjust your watches and fiddle with your microwave clocks, because daylight saving time is coming to an end.

Most areas in the United States will be turning their clocks back one hour, and stay that way until March, when daylight saving time is back on.

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of our modern world, time can easily slip away from us. Needless to say it’s important to stay on time; if not for your own sake, for the sake of your beloved animal companions.

Many of our pets are on tight schedules and require attentive care. Whether your pet has a specific dietary program to follow or takes medication, be sure to keep them in mind when you go to bed Saturday night. Standard time technically makes its return at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, except in Arizona and Hawaii.

Remember, for the last six months our pets have become accustomed to our daily routines, and their internal clocks will be just as off kilter as our own, so don’t be angry if your furry friend wakes you up an hour earlier than you intended.

Take some time to slowly ease your animals into their new schedules, and don’t forget to “fall back” before you go to bed on Saturday night.
