When was the last time you took a good look inside your pet’s mouth?
Whether you are getting a new puppy from a breeder or rescuing a cat from a local animal shelter, you are about to change this pet's life – and yours...
Is your pet sick or recently had an operation? You probably have to give them medicine. Sometimes, getting a pet to take a tablet or paste, or applying cream is more difficult than we expect. Still, it is crucial to follow your vet’s treatment plan for your pet, to ensure success!
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
If your pet develops adverse reactions after taking their medicine, contact your vet right away.
Never decide to change the administration regimen or stop treatment on your own.
Never give your pet human medicines. In addition, it is not advisable to mask medicine in human foods like peanut butter or hot dogs. These can add additional fat and calories to their diet that may contribute to weight issues and other serious health concerns. Ask your veterinarian what pet friendly solutions they recommend to make pill time easy.
