As a pet owner, you’re all too aware of your responsibility for keeping your pet safe from various dangers. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, countless animals are lost or stolen every single year. A collar and tag can certainly increase the chances of a missing pet being returned to its owner, but they aren’t always that reliable as they can easily fall off or be removed if someone wanted to. Fortunately, there is a more effective way of attaching your identification to your pet, increasing the likelihood of you both being successfully reunited – microchipping.
Regular wellness check-ups are crucial to keeping your pet in great health. Through advice from your vet at Cherry Hills Animal Hospital, you are better able to detect, treat and even prevent numerous health issues and keep your pet happy and healthy. However, if it is your first time taking your pet to their wellness exam, you may find that they act a little nervous or stressed. To keep your pet calm, it is important that you feel relaxed going into their wellness exam too. One of the best ways to do this is to have an understanding of what will happen.
