National Pet Week begins May 3rd and if you have a pet that you cherish, then this is a good time to make sure he or she is as healthy and happy as can be. In fact, the experts at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital are happy to help you shower your pet with the love, care, and attention he or she deserves. As one of Waipahu’s best animal care centers, this veterinary hospital offers every type of pet service imaginable, making them the go-to facility for all your pet needs.
To help you honor your pet and his or her health during National Pet Week, Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital suggests doing to the following:
- Go For a Check-Up: Taking your pet to a veterinary office for periodic check-ups is an important part of maintaining his or her health. Like you, animals have wellness needs that should be assessed and addressed on a regular basis, so taking time this week to visit a vet is a good idea.
- Keep Vaccinations Up-to-Date: When it comes to animals, vaccinations are essential in keeping them healthy. Being outdoors and even in a boarding facility can make your pet susceptible to disease, so you’ll need to check with the vet to see if any vaccination updates are necessary.
- Make Healthy Dietary Changes: When your pet was little, you likely followed every dietary precaution that was recommended by the vet. But as time has passed and your pet has aged, you may have become a little lax where food is concerned. During National Pet Week, ask your vet about dietary changes you can make to help your pet have better health.
