New Pets in their New Homes
Puppies and kittens happily move into their new homes around the holidays. Families love welcoming furry friends into their houses or apartments and hearts this time of year. Hopefully lots of these new friends were rescued and now have their “forever home and family.” Here is a list of inexpensive and helpful resolutions for keeping a new pet or faithful old companion happy and healthy:
- Take a photo: Like people, pets change with age. If you’re furry friend decides to have an adventure without you, you’ll want to have a current picture for posting.
- Resolve to exercise: If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the dog, cat, bunny, person..
- Consolidate medical info: Maintaining your pet’s medical information is important including vet information, names of medication… Use technology. There are iPhone and Android apps for helping you get this information organized. Store the address for the emergency after hours vet in your GPS too.
- Be prepared: Include in your home and car emergency kits: a spare leash, a bowl, extra bottles of water, canned pet food, and a blanket.
Finally, resolve to be more like your four legged pal. Love unconditionally. Play hard. Take naps. And sometimes, give yourself a treat.
