At Rose Cottage we are passionate about preventative health and helping your pets to stay happy and healthy. As we head into a new year, we thought we would share a reminder of some of our Vets top tips for keeping on top of your furry friends’ essential healthcare needs in 2023 and beyond.
Annual health check and vaccinations
During your pets’ vaccination booster appointment is usually when they have a complete heath check. It’s a good opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you have with your Vet about your pets or any changes you have noticed.
Your pets’ dental care is just as important as any other preventative treatment. Just like us humans our pets can develop a build-up of tartar and plaque, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Regular brushing and dental checks can help to keep on top of your pets’ dental hygiene.
Flee and Worming
Always keep on top of fleeing and worming. Fleas are an everyday problem in cats and dogs but can also affect other pets; and if an infestation is left unchecked, it can lead to serious illness. Fleas live on the skin, causing irritation and allergies that will lead to scratching, sometimes to the point of tearing the skin.
Always contact your Vet for any concerns you may have with your Fur babies health.
