Top 5 Ways to Keep Your Pets Healthy
1. Keep them on a monthly heartworm and flea preventative
- Heartworms are spread by mosquitoes, so all dogs are susceptible.
- Heartworm prevention also controls intestinal worms, which can be spread to children.
- A single flea your pet carries into the house can lay up to 50 eggs per day.
2. Have your pets spayed/neutered
- Besides preventing unwanted litters, spaying/neutering can prevent some health problems such as uterine infections, prostatitis, and some cancers.
3. Don’t forget about your pet’s teeth!
- Dogs and cats need dental care, too. Tartar buildup can lead to pain and infections, which can spread to other areas of the body such as kidneys, liver, and heart.
- We can perform a dental cleaning and advise you on ways to keep the teeth healthy.
4. Keep your pet at a healthy weight
- You should be able to feel your pet’s ribs easily but not see them. The belly should be smaller than the chest.
- Obesity can lead to joint problems, lower quality of life, and predispose to diseases such as diabetes.
5. Bring your pets in at least once a year for an examination and vaccines
- Conditions such as heart murmurs are easier to treat if caught and treated early.
