Pet Preventive Care Checklist

Pet Preventive Care Checklist

Keep your pet healthy with preventive care to ensure your pet's well-being. Today, our Exeter vets provide some preventative care tips that will help keep your pet happy and healthy.

Preventive Care for Dogs

At home and at Pacific Crest Companion Animal Veterinary Hospital with our vets. There are things that we can handle at home, but there are some that would need to be handled by veterinarians, like:

These are things that will need to be taken care of at home. 

  • Exercising -- your dog needs a lot of exercise, like daily walks, and plenty of outside time
  • Feeding -- your dog will thrive if they have a consistent feeding schedule
  • Cleaning -- it is important to clean your dog at home in between professional grooming to maintain their clean coat.

Preventive Care for Cats

Just like with dogs, your cats will need regular care from our Pacific Crest Companion Animal Veterinary Hospital vets and attention at home

These are things that will be managed by a professional:

Cats require special items at home for exercise since they often stay indoors. Here's what you can provide for them at your house:

  • Play and exercise -- your cat may sleep a lot, but they do require playtime and exercise. It's important to make sure they have enough space to run around.
  • Feeding -- like dogs, cats prefer to be fed at the same time each day. So, having a feeding schedule is important.
  • Cleaning -- your cat will clean itself regularly, but if you notice a lack of cleaning, you will want to contact the vet right away. This could be a sign of something more serious.
  • Housing -- cats need to have a "home" inside your home. Something they can climb on, scratch, and sleep in.
  • Toys -- toys are important for cats as well. They love toys that stimulate their mind.
