Dog Health Care Guide

1) Create a safe surrounding in your house – This is just like making your place safe for a baby before you bring one home. You also have to do it for your pets as well. Since all our pets have the tendency to end up getting access to so many of our stuffs, it would be better if we could make sure none of the dangerous things ever reach them. The usual items secured from pets would be cleaning materials, medicines and other drugs, incompatible foods, garbage and electrical cords.

2) Ensure your pet undergoes regular medical check-ups – It sure may be expensive, but do try your best to go to the veterinarian often. And while you're at it, see to it that your pets go through a complete examination to make sure they're hip and healthy. Ask your vet questions, if there's anything bothering you about your pets. Inquire if there's any need for pet medicines like Sentinel or Frontline Plus. These are the medicines you will need to help maintain their hearts' and bodies' normal functions.

3)Take care to give your pets the right food – different kinds of foods have different effects to animals, that's why it's good to find out what your pets can eat. Just to be sure,there are certain foods and drinks that should never be given to your pets. These are chocolates, garlic, onions, grapes, raw yeast, alcohol, any moldy foods, and garbage.

4) Create an exercise system for your pet – all household pets tend to grow fat when they get older, a very good example would be cats. That's why you need to give an extra effort to make them fit. If your pet's a dog, frequent outside walks would be good for them. Cats are also easy to manage, since you can also play with them using items they like, for example, a laser pointer.

5) Castration – research has show that castrated animals have a much higher rate of survival and often more likely to life longer and healthier. You don't have to worry if money is your issue. You can always get in touch with local animal shelters who would be happy to do it for you  for as little as ten dollars.  A lot of them are actually state programs that aims to make pet care more convenient for more people.
