Pet Care Tips - What Experts Want You To Know

The decision to bring home a pet is not made on impulse. Having a pet means you are committing to the responsibility of providing for its daily needs for the animal’s entire lifetime. So what are some of these important responsibilities in addition to providing for your pet’s basic needs, like food and shelter?

Proper veterinary care and vaccinations

Pets benefit from regular wellness checks and dental visits at the vet’s. They will also need specific vaccines to protect them from life-threatening diseases like rabies, canine parvovirus, canine distemper, leptospirosis, etc. 

Pet identification

The quintessential form of pet identification is the ID tag that is attached to the animal’s collar. However, more experts are now recommending microchips because these are more reliable forms of pet identification.

Environmental enrichment

With an enriched environment, pets won’t get bored because they have lots of opportunities for physical and mental stimulation. Boredom can become a fuel for the development of bad habits that can be a problem to address and eliminate. 

Consult with your Aurora, CO veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s vaccination and microchip insertion. Learn more here.
