Maximize a Long and Healthy Life for your Pet With these Eight Recommendations

By: Dr. Justin Smith

1. Preventive Health Maintenance 

  • Yearly physical exam and vaccinations 
  • Spay/Neuter by 4 months of age

2. Feed the best quality food that you can afford

  • Readily available in our area 
  • USA made from USA ingredients
  • Balanced for the age of your pet

3. Maintain a lean body weight

  • A lean pet lives 2 years longer than a heavy pet (that's 14 dog years!)

4. Parasite control

  • Frontline Plus - fleas, ticks, lice, mosquitos
  • Heartguard Plus - heartworms, intestinal parasites (worms)

5. Prevent dental disease

  • Train your pet to accept having their teeth brushed
  • Professional dental cleanings as recommended to prevent infection inflammation, and pain that can lead to diseases of the heart, liver, and kidneys.

6. Microchip identification

  • The best means of getting your pet home if he becomes lost or stolen

7. Exercise

  • Walk, run, and play daily

8. Obedience Training

  • An obedient pet is a pleasure to live with and makes the pet happy too
