1. Keep identification on your pet! A collar, current rabies tag & a personalized identification with a good phone number will get your lost pet back to you. Get your pet micro-chipped by your veterinarian as it is the perfect back-up to tags. Have photos of your pet just in case.
2. Keep your pet safely contained at home. Fences not only make ‘good neighbors’ but keep your pets safe from cars, guns, getting lost and so much more. Keep cats indoors if at all possible.
3. Take your pet to the vet at least once per year so your vet can do a check-up, keep vaccinations current & get your heartworm prevention renewed.
4. Spay and neuter your pet. Besides reducing the overpopulation that results in far too many homeless pets there is a long list of health benefits for both female and male pets.
