Essential Tips to Promote Your Pet’s Health

Some people believe that having a pet is less hectic and demanding than raising a child—a common misconception. Pets are equally susceptible to illness and diseases just as much as a child is. Poor care and treatment administered to any pet can lead to severe consequences on their health.

As a responsible pet owner, your pet’s health should be of paramount importance. Unlike humans, your pet would not be able to communicate to you any health complications he or she may be facing. A variety of signs and symptoms, such as reduced playfulness, will signal that something is amiss.

Whether you are a cat owner or a dog owner, these vital tips will help keep your pet in tip-top shape.

Visit a Vet


Before you adopt a pet, it is wise to have it checked by a vet. A veterinarian would advise on the current state of your pet and whether your pet would require any further health checks. Your pet will be put on a vaccination schedule. It is prudent that you adhere to the schedule.

Animals tend to have a shorter life span than the average human; therefore, a vet visit would suffice at least once or twice a year.

Taking your pet to the vet can be their least favorable trip. Consider choosing a vet who will make the journey more pleasant for your furry friend.

Grooming and Hygiene


Letting your pet run loose means that their fur may end up harboring a good amount of dirt. A spa day once in a while is a good way of cleaning and pampering your pet. They deserve the best for being your source of joy, right?

From facial treatments to ‘pawdicures’ to maintenance of furs, a pet care treatment can significantly impact your pet’s health. If you find it to be a bit costly, have no fear, there are discounted offers on a variety of pet care options. Canada Pet Care promo coupon can get you the proper treatment for less.

Neutering


Spaying your pet holds a myriad of benefits. Most pets, especially cats and dogs, tend to run away from home during the mating season or when they go into ‘heat.’ Neutering your cat can help to prevent this. It also helps in avoiding any pregnancies that may lead to health complications for your pet.

Removing your pet’s reproductive organs also significantly reduces their risk for cervical cancer.

A certified vet can only do this procedure. Getting a competent vet will essentially promote your pet’s recuperation rate.

Healthy Diet


Be sure to select the right food for your furry friend that will provide adequate nutrition. For instance, cats require nourishment with a good balance of carbs, fats, and proteins. Dog food should also include these vital elements and fiber.

Ensure you provide plenty of clean water as well. Your pet’s vet can also advise on the right brands of pet food to give.

You can also include treats for your pet as a light snack in between meals or as a way of rewarding good behavior. Cooking for your pet is also a considerable option.

Making these tips a part of your routine will considerably shape your pet’s health and help address any condition that would shorten their lifespan. Talk to your vet today and find out what more you can do for your furry little friend.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
