New Year’s Resolutions for Pets

Your pets depend on you for making their new year safer and more comfortable.  Here are some things you can do to ensure 2015 is the best year ever for them:

Be sure your pet is current on vaccinations. This will prevent illness and the spread of illness and keep your pet healthy. It’s also required by law.

Be sure your pet has proper identification should he get lost. A collar with a tag including your name, address and phone number, as well as an alternate phone number. You should also have current rabies tags on your animals.

Consider having your pet microchipped. This is a simple, non-surgical procedure that will ensure your pet’s return if it winds up in an animal shelter.

If you haven’t already, get your pet spayed or neutered. This will prevent pet overpopulation and reduce the chances for cancer in both males and females, as well as eliminate your pet’s urge to roam and mark.

If your dog has behavioral problems, now is the time to sign up for Pet University.

If your dog is not on heartworm preventive, make sure to have him tested for heartworms and begin the monthly preventive.
