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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
