Organisation tips to make it easier for you to take care of your pet’s health
Most of us lead busy lives, so it is all too easy for things to be missed. Including important things like your dog or cat´s vaccinations. Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to make that less likely. Below are a few tips to help you to stay organised which will make it easier to keep on top of everything you need to do to keep your pets healthy.
Make sure everyone knows who to contact in an emergency
The first tip is to ensure that everyone has the Emergency Vet telephone number saved on their phones. That way if one of you arrives home and finds one of your pet’s in distress, you can get help immediately. Don’t forget to update the number if you move or change vets and remember to add it to your home phone too if you still have one.
Understand your pet’s health conditions
If you have a pet with a long-term health condition your vet will explain what symptoms and danger signs to look out for. Make sure that you share this important information with other members of the family. Several sets of eyes are better than one. Often, recognising issues developing at an early stage will greatly improve the chances of your pet making a full recovery.
Add important tasks and pet-related events to your calendar
Adding calendar reminders to your phone is a good way of ensuring that you do not miss important things like applying flea protection and vaccinations. If you still struggle to remember these things, consider buying flea and worming products from a subscription service. As soon as it arrives open it and apply or give it to your pet. That way you will be far less likely to forget to do it and find your cat’s flea drops weeks later buried under a pile of paperwork.
Combine play with healthcare
As your pet gets older, it is even more important that you give them a quick check-up several times a week. Fortunately, you can do this while petting your dog, cat, or other pet. Simply feel for lumps, hot or sensitive spots, look at their teeth and paws. Most pets love the extra little bit of attention.
Exercise your pet daily without fail
No matter how tired you feel be sure to take your dog for their daily walk, play with your cat, rabbit, gerbil, or other pet. Providing them with exercise and attention is a big part of what will keep them healthy. As you can see from this study, it is also highly beneficial for you.
Take a pet first aid training course
Knowing what to do in an emergency could save your pet´s life. It really is worthwhile taking a course like this one.
Doing the above will help you to be able to take care of your pet’s health and well-being better. Allowing you to enjoy them even more than you do now.
