Right now, your puppy or kitten is still very young. Their life has just begun! And like humans, the first few months of life play a huge role in getting them started off right for their future. A check up at your vet means they’ll be starting their life off on the “right paw”, so to speak. And this should be something you follow every year. But of course, that very first examination is very important. First, we should be inserting a microchip, for example, so that you and your pet would always be reunited if they get lost. Next, vaccinations and deworming are highly recommended as preventive medicine at its best. No doubt your vet will also talk to you about neutering, diet and the importance of dental hygiene for your pet.
Whenever you consult your vet, it will always be their pleasure to answer any and all of your questions and provide you with their best advice. After all, animals and their wellbeing are their passion!
When they are fully grown, your pet is at their peak. They are still as playful as they were when they were younger, but they have the strength of adulthood. They are energetic, with a fully developed personality and behaviour that you’ve come to know well. Of course, you still take their health and wellbeing very much to heart, and you want them to live happily for a long time… and in terms of behaviour, they’ve certainly developed their own little quirks and eccentricities!
Don’t hesitate to consult your vet. It will be their pleasure to answer your questions and share their knowledge and advice. Your vet will also make sure your companion gets routine check ups that can increase their quality of life as they mature and evolve. Depending on the breed, it is possible that some conditions require a little more follow up. And remember that a bond also forms between your pet and your vet. Each visit is an opportunity to update their file, because your pet’s needs change over time.
At what age is your pet considered “old”? First of all, let’s start by stating that aging is not an illness, and you can take steps to ensure that your pet fully enjoys their life. They might live fifteen, sixteen years or longer. They could have a long, wonderful life, with the help of you and your vet, enjoying the best health possible. And at the first signs of osteoarthritis, vision problems, or other problems that could crop up along the way, rest assured that there are many treatments that ease the side effects and in many cases, treat the conditions completely.
Don’t hesitate to consult your vet concerning your aging pet. It will be their pleasure to answer all your questions and provide expert advice. And remember that with time, an important bond also forms between the vet and your pet. Each visit is an opportunity to update their file and ensure the best quality of life possible for your pet.
Your pet has been a part of your life for many years. They may have grown up with your children who are now adults as well. They've been there with you and for you during the hard times, always offering unconditional love. You know that no pet lives forever, and for some time, you’ve felt that the end of a well-lived life is near. From the very beginning, your faithful companion’s wellbeing and health has been of paramount importance to you. Firmly believing that prevention is the best medicine, you’ve regularly visited your vet. What should you do when illness hits and there’s no treatment left… and your pet’s quality of life is severely compromised?
Don’t hesitate to consult your vet about the end of life of your pet. Your vet will answer your questions to the best of their ability and experience. If euthanasia is deemed a viable option, your vet will gently explain how it’s done, with care and respect.
Your pet—especially a dog—can catch something, particularly a cough, whenever they are outdoors and in contact with other animals. Fortunately, vaccines are available to prevent a large number of infectious diseases. Some are even mandatory in some countries where you may find yourself travelling with your companion.
If your pet hasn’t been vaccinated, please don’t wait to consult your vet. In the meantime, avoid areas where the risk of contact with other animals is higher.
You have the type of life where every minute counts. Your schedule is always full but you always try to find time for yourself. Because those moments are precious, you’d rather not spend them performing tasks that could easily be done by someone else.
Passionimo veterinary clinics offer a variety of services that free you from some of these time-consuming tasks. Day boarding, kennel, nail trimming, grooming, and behavioural training are just a few. Click on the links to know more.
