It helps to read the small lines.
● Feed your pet high-quality pet food. Feeding your pet with high-quality pet food is much better for his health and well-being, and is more cost-efficient than a homemade diet or generic pet food. As much as possible, find a pet food that is formulated under the standards of the American Association of Feed Control Officials. Furthermore, avoid feeding your pet more than necessary, this will lead to your pet becoming overweight or obese and can cause health problems.
● Learn to meet your pet’s grooming needs at home. Regularly brush your pet’s hair and trim his nails. This will save you the price of every visit to a grooming facility. This will also be good for you and your pet as grooming sessions are an excellent time to bond with each other. Also, brushing reduces the quantity of hair laying around the home and can go a long way in preventing hairballs in cats.
