MyVet warns of the hidden health risks facing overweight pets.
When we think about weight management in pets it can be easy to focus on their exercise routine and how active they might, or might not, be. However, getting them out for their daily walk is only part of it, and in fact, what they eat from one day to the next plays an equally important role.
Brushing is by far the best method of keeping your pet’s teeth clean in Dublin and is more successful if taken in stages. Ideally, it would help if you brushed your dog’s teeth at least once daily or three times at a minimum to help remove plaque and prevent tartar build-up.
Keeping our pets safe is important to all of us as pet owners. They trust us with their care and protection and microchipping can help with keeping them safe. A microchip identifies your pet as belonging to you. It contains a unique reference number which links to your details as an owner, stored on a central database. By scanning this microchip, this data is then accessible for the person scanning your pet.
