Just got a new pet?
Congratulations! We believe pets are family. That's why, whether your new dog or cat is a puppy, kitten, or shelter adoption, we offer affordable care packages for their preventative care.
Congratulations on your new pet! Here are a few tips to help you get them started on the right foot - ahem - paw. Don't forget to download our New Kitten Information and New Puppy Information e-books below.
Tip #1 - Heartworm, Flea, and Intestinal Parasite Prevention
Heartworms, fleas, and other parasites can be devastating to dogs and cats in Houston. Please make sure to take your new puppy or kitten to the veterinarian right away and discuss the best parasite prevention plan for your pet and family.
Tip#2 - Spay and neuter your pets
In addition to reducing the pet population, spaying and neutering your pets has many health benefits and improves the quality of their lives.
Tip#3 - Chocolate and other unknown toxins
Many of the common plants, flowers, foods and spices that we all have around our home and are perfectly safe for us are actually toxic and in some cases, lethal to our pets. Visit our blog to get a comprehensive list of toxins.
Tip#4 - Heatstroke is a very real danger in Houston
Here in our area, its basically summer temperatures 7 months out of the year and we need to be extra vigilant when it comes to our pets and children. Don't leave them in the care and make sure they get plenty of water!
Tip #5 - Feeding
Feeding both dogs and cats a premium diet targeted at the appropriate life stage and breed/size of pet is important. Puppies and kittens require a much larger daily intake, but a measured daily feeding amount is recommended for adults and/or after being altered to ensure a healthy weight is maintained.
Tip#6 - Crate Training
Crate training from a young age is recommended to provide the quickest and most effective potty training for young (an even adult) dogs. Crate training also helps ensure the safety of pets when they cannot be directly supervised and allow them a source of safety. Dogs are den animals and benefit greatly from having a crate to call their own.
Tip#7 -Microchip your pets
A microchip for dogs & cats gives the best protection with permanent ID that can never be removed or become impossible to read. Even indoor pets should be microchipped because there is always the potential for a normally indoor only pet to slip out of an open door/window or escape during travel and find themselves lost.
