Your pet relies on you for all its needs. While spaying and neutering is critical to helping your pet live a longer, healthier life; your pet also needs:
- A healthy diet.
- Plenty of exercise.
- A clean living environment.
- Regular grooming.
- Veterinary care.
Selecting a veterinarian and developing a vet-pet relationship is crucial to maintaining your pet's health.
If you don't have a regular vet, ask your friends, neighbors, or local animal shelter workers to recommend a good veterinarian. You can also check the Yellow Pages under "Veterinarians" and "Animal Hospitals". Or, search for local veterinarians on the Internet at www.pets911.com.
A veterinarian should meet both your needs and your pet's needs, so do your research and choose wisely. Your pet is counting on you.
