6. How much exercise does my pet need?
A 10-pound tabby cat calls for a different exercise protocol than the 60-pound retriever, but in any case, an active pet is a happy pet. Work with your vet on how much exercise your pet needs per day, but also the type of exercise that will benefit them the most. Your dog may love to go on a jog with you or take a refreshing swim.
7. Is my pet up to date on vaccinations, dental care, and blood work?
These procedures are routine for supporting your dog or cat’s best life, so ask your vet if they’re current. Vaccinations help prevent diseases and illnesses, while blood work helps your vet take a closer look at proteins, enzymes, and white blood cells to assess underlying health conditions. And dental work is surprisingly critical for our pet’s quality of life—80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some sign of dental disease around age two, which can lead to disease and infection if left untreated. Hill’s Science Diet Adult Oral Care Dog Food and Cat Food kibble has an innovative texture designed to work like a toothbrush as your pet chews.
