New Year’s resolutions for pet owners

New Year’s resolutions aren’t just for humans. There are things you can commit to in the new year to help make 2018 your pet’s happiest, healthiest year yet.

– Schedule an annual wellness exam, especially if your pet hasn’t been tested for heartworm in the past year. Start them on a monthly heartworm preventive if you haven’t already.

– Exercise with your pet. Regular trips to the dog park and daily walks are great for both of you.

– Make sure your pet’s microchip and ID tags are up to date. It’s easy to put off, but there’s no time like the present.
