Important Pet Care Tips

-Spay and neuter your pets-they’ll live a longer, healthier life!
-Have your pets microchipped.
-Keep updated tags on your pet at ALL times.
-Always have your pet on a leash.
-If your dog pulls when walking, consider a gentle leader or a harness which gives more control.
-Never assume that your dog will not bite another dog or a person, not every dog gets along with other dogs and not all dogs love every “stranger”.
-Keep cats indoors all year round. The average lifespan of an indoor cat is twice that of an outdoor cat.
-Have one cat box per cat and scoop at least once a day.
-Provide clean water and clean bowls regularly.
-Feed quality food to maintain nutrition and proper weight.
-Check eyes daily for excess discharge and check ears weekly for cleanliness.
-Groom your pet regularly to reduce shedding & improve the skin and coat.
-Keep chewing gum, strings, rubber bands, coins and small objects off of the floor away from pets as they can be deadly.
-Make sure house plants are pet safe, many common house and garden plants are poisonous to pets. Chocolate, grapes and other foods are also harmful. National Pet Poison 1-888-232-8870.
-Keep a copy of Pet Pages handy at all times. Accidents happen when you least expect them and if your pet requires emergency medical care, you’ll know who to call.
Caring for your pets properly requires knowledge of pet care, pet health, handling emergency situations and assuming responsibility of ownership in order for your loved ones to be safe in your absence.
