8 Things I Learned from Angel

Our pet babies give us unconditional love. They make us happy by being there for us, providing loyal friendship, and companionship.

Our pet babies will never outgrow us. They remain dependent on us their pet parents for their entire lives. Our pet babies need some veterinary care in order to be healthy. We need to get them to the animal clinic or hospital for their regular check up, and for their shots. They are required by law to have an annual anti-rabies shot. To protect them from other diseases, they also need other shots and preventive medication. For example, they need a preventive medicine to protect them from heartworm, a parasite which causes severe damage and even death.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This saying is never truer than in the case of our pet children. It doesn’t take so much time or money, but giving the preventative medications, will go a long way in keeping our pet children healthy for a long time. When we give them the necessary health care, as well as proper diet and exercise, it goes a long way in keeping them around with us for a long time. It is also more economical to invest in the preventive medications than to have to pay the high cost of treatment.

I love Angel so much, that I realized early on that we need to take good care of her health. Pets generally have a shorter life span than human beings. Providing proper health care for our pets will help enhance their well-being so that those precious years will be as enjoyable and wonderful as possible.
