Don't Let Your Pet Go Back to School
When the school bell rings, don't let your pet go back to school. Many dogs and cats will naturally follow kids--or will be encouraged to tag along. Many become lost, injured, or cause a nuisance around the school yard. Keep your pet confined when children leave for school. If you drive, don't take the pets with you. Animals learn quickly and may find their own way to school later on. Brief separations during the days just before the new school year will help those children and pets that are especially close. And if your pet is missing, call the school first.
PETS AND YOUR HEALTH
Did you know owning a pet improves your health and increases your life span? Owning a pet reduces depression, encourages exercise, and lowers blood pressure. People who own pets make fewer doctor visits. Heart attack patients have been proven to survive longer with a pet.
We now offer a senior wellness package. Did you know your 7 year old pet is considered a senior. With our package, we do a complete exam and bloodwork to screen for any underlying issues. If anything is found, we offer 15% off of any additional diagnostics. Give us call and schedule your pets senior visit today!
