Vet Tips

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says these are the best ways to keep your pet healthy:

SPAY OR NEUTER - Helps prevent breast cancer in female pets and aggresive behavior in males.
VACCINATE - Keeps immune systems strong.
SEE YOUR VET - Lets your vet notice any developing illness and treat it.
FIGHT FLEAS - The pests can cause shin disease, anemia, scratching, allergies and tape worms.
PREVENT HEARTWORM - This infection is easily prevented, but hard to treat and sometimes fatal.
GET MOVING - Daily exercise keeps pets fit and mentally healthy, and channels aggressive and destructive behavior.

- Excess flesh can cause arthritis and liver and heart disease in pets.
DO A WEEKLY HEALTH CHECK - Nips potential health problems in the bud.
MEMORIZE ASPCA's LIST OF FOODS TO AVOID - They include alcohol, chocolate, fatty foods, onions, grapes, and raisins.

- Plaque that builds up can cause infection and tooth decay, and can move into the blood stream.
