  • Make certain your pet stays up to date with all pertinent, individualized vaccinations

  • Keep all pet nails clipped and trimmed

  • Watch for symptoms of parasites, fleas, ticks, worms or heart-worms and treat for them regularly

  • Choose exactly the right diet for your pet - good nutrition is key to wellness

  • If your pet is furry - brush them regularly for mat-prevention

  • Watch your pet's urine and feces output to verify they are well fed and hydrated, and worm or parasite-free

  • Weigh your pet as often as possible - ideally once a week to verify weight gain or loss, and keep track of this

  • Keep your pet's teeth or beak clean. Have your pet’s teeth professionally cleaned by your veterinarian at least once a year.
