Too Late for Pet Costumes? Never!

pet costumesAlthough Halloween only comes around once a year, you may discover there are other opportunities to play dress up with your pet. New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and the Fourth of July are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to opportunities for your four-legged friend to strut their stuff.

On the other hand, some animals may need all 365 days to get used to next year’s costume. Don’t let another October 31st come around without preparing your pet for the main event of the year. Pet costumes make a big impact on a crowd, but they come with their own list of safety precautions.

At Your Fingertips: The Keys to Pet Wellness

pet wellnessOne approach to pet care is to provide basic items for survival, such as food, water, and shelter. While these are certainly important, there’s also much more that goes into responsible pet ownership. Instead of putting off veterinary care until a problem occurs, preventive care supports a higher quality of life and increased longevity. To be sure, routine pet wellness strengthens the foundation for lifetime health, and we’re here to help you achieve that goal.

At the Core

Depending on your pet’s age, lifestyle, and overall health, he or she should be seen 1-2 times a year. At first, these visits provide the opportunity to discuss vaccinations, parasite prevention, microchipping, and spaying/neutering. We also get to know you and your pet a little better each time. Together, we can establish a long-term health care plan that hinges on wellness and prevention.
