Keeping pets have always been loved by many people and that too since old time to present. Pets are also treated like a family member of their house. It can be said undoubtedly, that the more love and care you give to the pets the more you get in return with loyalty and sincerity. Taking them along on morning walks, in the car for ride, in pet’s shows etc are also taken as the utmost care and point of concern for them by the pet owner. It has been observed that a handsome amount of every month’s expenditure is spent on the clinical care of the pet to ascertain that their pets are completely healthy and free from any kind of diseases. It is generally done on the nearby pet clinics with the help of family pet doctor.
But if you are a sincere and pet owner and love your pet a lot, then the regular visit to pet doctor’s clinic can be easily avoided. Now the question comes, how? As we all know about the meaning of the proverb ‘Prevention is better than cure’ then why not to imply this proverb in our daily life whether it is regarding our own life or the pet’s life. So if you take preventive measures in regard to your pet from the very beginning then check up bills can be reduced to a great extent thereby keeping your pet healthy and happy.
One can also do a home check up of the pets to make sure if they are healthy or not. We all know that eyes speak the heart out and so the physical and mental health too. Just like: when we have cough and cold or fever our eyes are the first one to say that we are not fine similarly is the case with the pets like dogs and cats also. Doing a home check up does not means giving a medicine of your choice to the pet if it is not healthy; all you need to check are the eyes of your pet. Check if they are clear and bright and if not then are there some strange symptoms like irritation, redness, runniness etc. which compels the pet to rub the eyes again and again with his paws. You can also confirm unhealthiness by noticing the pet’s shying reaction when light directly falls in its eyes. All such things can be taken care by the pet owner himself and pet should be immediately taken to the pet doctor.

Make sure before stepping out of home with your pet it is very necessary to give them Flea medicine in the right way as per following the instruction written beside the medicine.

Then the next point of concern and care for the pet is clipping of the nails on regular basis. For this purpose, appropriate tools are required because this activity is something that is not actually praised by the pets.

Once this clipping procedure is finished then make sure you enwrap them with the help of a towel or any piece of cloth that can be used for absorption. This would safeguard your hands from painful scratches of your pet.
It is also very important to give the appropriate food to your pet in spite of just giving anything without knowledge.
