We love our pets. Sometimes we spoil them rotten. Other times we have to be the responsible ones (No you can’t have the whole bag of treats you will throw up). Here are a few tips for being a responsible pet parent.

2. Take care of your dog’s health and well-being.
It is important for your dog to see a veterinarian at least once a year for a physical exam and vaccinations. If you live in an area where there are mosquitoes, your dog needs to be checked and treated for heartworms.

Unless you are trying to show or breed your dog, Turner Bell recommends getting your pet spayed or neutered. This step not only keeps your pet healthier, but it can also help prevent some diseases from developing.
