Ring in the New Year’s: Resolutions for your Pet

Now we have all heard of the “New Year’s resolution.”  Some people follow this timeless tradition every year to the fullest and some people give up after January, myself included. This year I have an idea to help you go all the way, to help you last the full year with your resolution. The Killarney Cat Hospital team is personally challenging all pet owners to the 2015 New Year’s “PET” resolution.

Your PET resolution is up to you but here are some common ones:

**Is your pet overweight?  Call us for a free nutrition consult and we will help you get your furry friend in shape.

**Does your pet have bad breath?  Come in for a dental exam.  Our vets will help you resolve the issue with home care and professional cleaning.

**Has your pet been missing in action from those important yearly check-ups?  Call us and we can get you all caught up.

**For cats over age 8, has it been more than a year since their last senior lab panel?  Our vets and techs will provide your cat with lots of TLC while getting those important lab samples!

If you have answered yes to any of these questions then you’re a perfect candidate for this challenge. Now I can’t speak for everyone but I know in the past I have set personal resolution goals and given up on them all too easy because I’m only letting myself down. “Oh I don’t need to go to the gym today, I went yesterday let’s just stay home and order pizza” is a quote I used to say far too often.  This year will be different.  This year I’m challenging myself and everyone reading this to the 2015 “PET” resolution.

This year make it a priority to change one unhealthy pet habit, whether it’s as small as changing from a generic pet store food brand to a veterinarian recommended life stage diet, booking regular visits to the veterinarian for vaccine updates, or as big as saving a little each month for a much needed dental surgery. We all love our pets and I know personally that if my goals are set around the happiness of my little fur babies that I won’t let them down and will stick with it all year.  Please give us a call and we will meet these goals together.

The challenge is on and good luck to all!

The Importance of Microchips

A microchip is a small chip that is placed under the skin between the shoulders. The needle we use is larger than a typical blood collection needle, though other than the initial poke does not cause any ongoing pain.
