The first thing you can do for your pet's health is read your labels.
The moral of the story is: read your labels and do some research. Do not allow the visual on the package or the perception of certain ingredients determine your overall purchasing decision.
Five More Health Tips!
Once again, skin allergies and ear infections topped the list of reasons pets saw their vets in 2013. However, those weren’t the most expensive to treat of last year’s top 10 most common disorders.
Many of the illnesses and diseases on last year’s list can be partially or entirely prevented by pet owners who incorporate a few common-sense tips into the care they provide their dog or cat.
These tips include feeding biologically appropriate nutrition, keeping your pet lean and well-exercised, brushing his teeth, avoiding unnecessary vaccinations, and keeping up with both at-home and veterinary wellness exams.
Many of the most common canine accidents reported in 2013 can be prevented by insuring your four-legged companion is physically fit and under your constant supervision in any situation in which she could be injured.
