The Best Pet Gift Ever
In the mad rush of the holiday season, it is easy to overlook our furry family members. The best gift you can give your pet this holiday season is to get their healthcare up-to-date. Get that heartworm test. Make sure they are on a preventative program. Follow-up on some lingering health issues. Putting off that spay or neuter, well, now is the time.
And here is why:
- Heartworm is on the rise everywhere and everywhere includes here.
- Rabies cases have been reported in our area. Rabies is real.
- Warmer winter weather trends are happening; resulting in earlier, longer, life spans of fleas and ticks. If they are on your pet, they are in your house.
- Spaying and neutering lowers your pet’s risk of certain types of cancer. For females, as they mature, pyometra is a real risk.
Catching up on your furry family member's healthcare is the best gift you can give them and yourself.
