How do you take care of your health?
Do you take supplements to keep your hormones balanced or do you jog around the block three times per week to keep your cardiovascular system in check? Are you the type of person to prioritize your diet or is your biggest goal this year to get more sleep per night? Your pets have their own ways of looking after their well-being, but when they come down with heartworm or bloating there’s little they can do. This is where the love and knowledge of their owner comes in. Veterinary laboratory services are readily available to diagnose your pet, provide them resources and keep them feeling well year in and year out.
So your child has been begging you for a dog for years and the time has finally come where you are even considering it. Her little face would be just adorable on Christmas morning when she opens the lid to that box and out pops a puppy. However, you do need to think past Christmas morning when it comes to taking care of a pet. As much as we love to see our children light up with joy, there’s a real responsibility that is required when taking care of pets; dogs in particular. If you are getting an animal to help teach your child responsibility and how to care for someone, then that’s great but you should know it’s going to be a lot of work. From veterinary diagnostics to food safety and vet visits, there’s a lot than goes in to this. Here are a few things to consider before getting your new pet.
