Healthy Pet Tips for the New Year

< Back to Blog

January is full of new beginnings, so what better way to start fresh with your pet than to set them up for a happy and healthy new year? From dental cleanings to flea control to vaccine reminders, here’s how to get your pet ready to take on 2022!

Prevent the Pests 

  • Restock your flea and tick medications. If you don’t have a few months’ supply on hand, you can order directly from our online pharmacy!
  • Talk to your vet about heartworm protection, which may be administered during your annual exam appointment.
  • Groom your dog or cat regularly to keep their coat looking pristine and to allow you to better scan their fur and skin for external parasites.
  • Be wary of off-beaten trails. Try your best to avoid outdoor areas that have dense vegetation/weeds as these areas are known to harbor ticks.

Keep Fangs Fresh

Schedule regular teeth cleanings with your veterinarian. Maintaining pets’ dental health can add years to their life.

Vaccines and Boosters (but not for COVID-19)

Fortunately, our furry friends don’t need protection from the pandemic, but they do require core vaccines for optimal health.

We want ultimate health and wellness for your pets this year—and every year!
