10 Things Veterinarians Want You to Know About Pet Care
1. Regular Exams are Vital- Just like you, your pet can get heart problems, develop arthritis, or have a toothache, so it is vital to get them checked every year.
2. Spay and Neuter Your Pets- Spaying and neutering doesn't just cut down on the number of unwanted pets, studies show it lowers the risk of certain cancer.
3. Prevent Parasites- Year-round prevention is key to avoid your pet becoming infected.
4. Maintain a Healthy Weight- Just like people, obesity in pets comes with health risks that include diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. Keeping our pets trim can add years to their lives.
5. Get Regular Vaccinations- For optimal health, pets need regular vaccinations against common illness. Immunization depends on age, lifestyle, health, and risks.
6. Provide an Enriched Environment- Pets need physical as well as mental stimulation to keep them going.
7. ID Microchip Your Pet- Microchipping allows for the pet to be reunited with its family when lost.
8. Pets Need Dental Care, Too-  Just like you, regular brushing and oral cleanings help keep your pet's teeth strong and healthy.
9. Never Give Pets People Medication- Medicines made for humans pose health risks or can possibly kill your pet.
10. Proper Restraint in a Vehicle- Unrestrained pets in a car are a distraction to the driver, and can put driver and pet at risk for serious injury or worse.

Tip for cleaning your dog's eyes.
If your dog's eyes are crusty, gently wipe them with a damp cotton ball to remove any gunk. Wipe outward from the corner of the eyes and make sure not to touch the eyeball; you can accidentally scratch the cornea. If your dog constantly suffers from watery eyes and discharge, please see your veterinarian. Your dog may have an infection.
