Happy Holidays From all of us at Sheehy Animal Hospital, Your Livonia Veterinarian
As we approach the end of the year, the entire team at Sheehy Animal Hospital, your preferred Livonia veterinarian, would like to wish you happy holidays and a prosperous and healthy 2018. Since so many people consider their pets to be members of the family, we wanted to take this opportunity to provide some tips to help pet owners keep their animal companions healthy and safe.
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.
