Here are a few things you can do to help keep your pet healthy this new year:

  1. Keep your pet at a healthy weight;
  2. Exercise your pet;
  3. Feed your pet a balanced, nutritious diet;
  4. Have your veterinarian examine your pet at least once a year to make sure your pet is healthy and to help detect problems earlier;
  5. Vaccinate your pet against potentially deadly diseases such as distemper, parvo, panleukopenia and rabies;
  6. Keep your pet free of parasites (fleas, ticks, heartworm, etc.) – consult your veterinarian for the best product for your pet;
  7. Spay/neuter your pet.
