Tip 236


The first thing you should do when you adopt a new fur kid is make an appointment with your veterinarian.  At your first visit, discuss preventive healthcare. After your initial visit, make sure your furkid sees a veterinarian at least once a year for a routine wellness exam.

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
