If you want your pet to beat the average age and live a better quality of life, then follow simple advice below to help your pet live a happy, healthy life.
We estimate that by following this advice, you could help your pet live up to an additional five years compared to pet owners who do not follow these simple rules.
1. Choose A Quality Diet For Your Pet
We are what we eat, we've all heard the phrase and it's just as important for pets as it is for people. The problem is that with so many diet choices available it can be hard to pick out the right diet for your pet. Consult with your veterinarian to determine which food is best for your pet.
2. Prevent Parasites
We live in an area with an abundance of parasites. Florida hosts parasites in fleas, intestinal worms, heartworms, and ticks. We recommend to keep your pet on year round prevention.
3. Vaccinations - The Truth
The Internet has allowed so many fear-based myths to spread and this has lead to people thinking that it's OK not to vaccinate their pets. We want to be very clear on this. Vaccines are necessary, for the most part safe and animals that are vaccinated live longer, happier and healthier lives than those who are not vaccinated.
4. Prevent Dental Disease
Dental Disease will happen to your pet and chances are it will happen early. The answer? Brush your pet's teeth and have a dental well-being assessment every six months. We offer Destin's best value dental well-being program. When it comes to teeth, prevention is so much better (and cheaper) than cure.
