Top 3 New Year's Resolutions for Pets
Ever wondered what your dog or cat would wish for in 2020? Or have you ever considered what would be their top priorities?
Many people say they wish for health and happiness. I wonder if pets wish for that. Maybe they just wish for more treats or more time with you.
Based on 40 years of serving pets and their owners, here are the top 3 resolutions for the coming year that I believe would serve the pet population well. Of course, the pets of southeastern Indiana need to convince the people they live with to get on board with these resolutions. Do you think that's possible?
How Do Parasites Affect the Health of Both Pets and Humans?
In our last column, we learned how heartworm disease in dogs is on the rise. We learned that tick-borne diseases are affecting more and more people than ever before. We also know that fleas can carry diseases and that they are a nuisance every year. The old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is a reality that also applies to our pets when it comes to parasites.
But what about the parasites that are already here? What is the impact on our heath, the health of our children, and our pet's health? How can we mitigate the potential suffering caused by these opportunistic beasts?
