Day One

Know Your Pets

Know Your Preparation
Getting a pet takes preparation. Know who is going to care for your pet. Plan to for plenty attention and interaction time each day and learn the costs involved in pet ownership

Day Three

Know Your Dog
A healthy diet plays a large role in your dog’s overall quality of life and health! Good nutrition can keep your dog at a healthy weight as well as reduce the risk of various diseases.

Day Four

Know Your Cat
Cats like to feel protected when they rest or sleep. They will choose elevated locations if possible (think trees), shelves, closets. Providing places where Kitty can feel safe and secure will help them relax in their environment, feeling calm and well rested.

Help improve your exotic pet’s overall health and live a longer life. Veterinarians also recommend yearly annual exams, blood work and fecal screenings.

Know Your Role
Emergencies happen. Be prepared. Keep an up to date list of all of your pets vaccinations, medications and medical conditions. Talk to your vet for creating an emergency plan.
