Understanding Heartworm and How to Prevent It
Pets are a beloved part of the family, offering loyalty, love and devotion and hopefully getting the same in return. Also like the rest of the family, pets can get sick.
One of the more serious diseases pets can get is heartworm. Nearly every pet owner is aware of heartworm upon their first trip to the veterinarian's office.
Keeping Pets Safe from Poisons
When it comes to poison proofing a home, lots of people might assume it's only necessary for homes with young children. But homes that have pets, be it a friendly feline or man's best friend, need to be safe as well.
Keeping pets safe from poisons is especially important since many pets spend much time at home alone.
Tips for Choosing a Vet
When it comes to choosing a physician, it's often hit or miss. For some people, a doctor's bedside manner is extremely important, while others care more about a doctor's credentials than his compassion.
The same is often true for pet owners when it comes time to choose a veterinarian, though in many cases pet owners prefer a vet who has a gentle approach to their pet.
