Pet Safety Advice From Your Veterinarian in Livonia

We frequently get inquiries for our veterinarian in Livonia from people looking to keep their pets safe. Here are some tips that you can follow to ensure your pet stays in good shape:

  • Make an appointment for annual wellness exams. This allows your Livonia pet care professional to catch small problems before they become more serious and more difficult to treat.
  • Spay or neuter your pet. Not only does this prevent unwanted pregnancies (which unfortunately are filling the animal shelters), sterilization can prevent pets from getting cancer in the testicles, uterus and mammaries.
  • Brush your pet’s teeth daily and arrange for annual teeth evaluation and professional cleaning.
  • Get your pet microchipped so that if it ever goes missing, the person who finds the animal can have the chip scanned to obtain your contact information.

As Livonia pet care specialists, we are proud that so many local pet owners place their trust in us to safeguard their animals, helping them thrive and watching over their health with checkups in our state-of-the-art animal hospital.

Set an Appointment for a Pet Wellness Exam at Sheehy Animal Hospital Today

In addition to keeping your home a warm and safe environment for your pet, it’s prudent to bring them in for regular wellness exams at least twice a year, according to the recommendations from your vet. If you have any concerns about maintaining safety for your pets during the holidays or would like to set an appointment, please contact Sheehy Animal Hospital today. We offer $20 off physical examinations for new clients.

How old is your pet now, and when was the last time you brought the animal in for a wellness checkup? Please sound off in the comments section so your fellow pet owners can compare notes.
