The new year is upon us and many people will have new year’s resolutions. These are usually about taking care of yourself: losing weight and quitting smoking are common examples, but what about taking care of your pet?
The new year is a great time to ensure your pet has a clean bill of health. Microchipping, vaccines, check-ups, nail clipping and dental work can all give your pet a happy start to the new year and help them stay healthier throughout 2015.
Microchipping is essential for all cats and dogs. A quick and painless procedure, the microchip is injected just under the skin at the back of the neck. It is a cheap solution that allows your pet to be identified quickly and easily in any number of circumstances.
Vaccines are important to ensure your pet stays healthy. Many people know the significance of making sure their pet is vaccinated in its infancy, but it’s easy to forget that, in order to maintain immunity from the diseases they’re vaccinated against, adult pets need regular booster injections too. Rabbits in particular, need regular vaccinations against Myxomatosis to keep them healthy.
Regular check-ups help to ensure your pet stays in good health. They are a great opportunity to ask the vet any questions you might have about your pet, discuss any unusual behaviour or concerns you might have and just to feel reassured that your pet has been checked over.
Nail clipping and dental work can both greatly improve your pets quality of life. Quick and easy, both these procedures are important to ensure that your pet isn’t having trouble walking or eating and can prevent far more serious problems.
