When it comes to keeping your pet healthy there are many things to take into consideration such as making your home pet-proof. As we all know, our animals can and will find something to get into when you aren’t around. So first and most important, anything that can physically harm them needs to be put away far out of their reach. Things that are harmful to our pets are the same for children like certain foods, prescriptions/medicines and electrical cords that they could possibly chew right through.
Dogs and cats just like humans need to get regular check-ups. It’s important to ask your veterinarian questions while you are there to make sure you aren’t missing anything. Even if you have pets that are strictly indoor doesn’t mean they can’t get fleas. This is something you can prevent by giving them the necessary dosage of Frontline Plus. This can prevent your dog or cat from getting heart worm which can be deadly.
What you feed your animals makes a huge impact on their health so do your research or consult with your vet to make sure they are getting a balanced nutritional diet. There are a few human foods they absolutely must stay clear of such as: grapes, chocolate, onion, garlic and whatever is in your garbage.
Make sure your pets have a steady exercise routine to keep them active and healthy. Take your dog on daily walks and you can play with your cat around the house with toys. This will keep them happy and in good shape.
Spaying or neutering your pet can keep them more healthy and prolong their life too. The easiest way to take care of getting your pet fixed is to go to your regular vet or contact an animal shelter as many of them have programs that perform a spay or neuter for a low cost.
