Pets, particularly dogs and cats are prone to parasitic attacks from fleas and other pests. This can lead to hair loss, skin irritations and allergies, infections or hot spot. So, use regular flea and intestinal parasite control products. Ask your veterinary clinic to suggest you about pet supplies.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying and neutering your pet at an age as early as 6-8 months can help in giving your pet a unique identity. At the same time, it helps in providing protection against certain cancers and reduces the risk of getting lost.
Your cat may look cute with extra flab of skin around her, but overweight and obese animals are unhealthy and die earlier than the fitter ones. Plus, that makes them prone to medical conditions like cancer, diabetes and arthritis. So, ensure that you never overfeed them. Talk to your vet to determine amount of calories required by your pet.
For optimal health, your pet needs to be vaccinated. So, when you adopt one, take them to a veterinary and discuss their vaccinations.
