What are the best ways to keep a pet healthy?

Regular veterinary visits are essential to the good health of pets. Talk to your pet's vet about how to keep your pet healthy. Provide your pet with a good diet, fresh water, clean bedding and plenty of exercise. Keep up to date with your pet's vaccines, deworming, and flea and tick control.

Your dog will trust you to keep him in good health. A proper diet, regular exercise and grooming, and routine checkups at the vet will help keep your dog in top shape. It is also important that you know your dog's habits when eating, drinking, sleeping, etc., since sometimes a variation in those habits can be an indication that he is not feeling well. In addition, your pet can even benefit from these procedures: spayed females are less likely to get breast cancer and uterine infections in the future, and neutered males have a lower risk of suffering from prostate diseases and testicular cancer.

But, like most things in life, our pets tend to have more to do with what it feels like to the naked eye. AKC pet insurance can help cover the cost of providing quality medical care throughout your dog's life.
