Finding out from your vet what foods are best for your animal to eat means that you can start protecting your cat or dog from the inside. Good nutrition is the basic element to making sure that your pet is physically able to handle the rigours of everyday pet life and will have enough energy to sustain them from day to day. Other advantages of good foods are that your pet will develop and grow and age with the right nutrients for all of the right stages. While good food provides for all their physical nutritional demands you can take care of their other dog and cat health needs such as daily exercise and grooming when and where it is necessary. When you are looking for specific advice feel free to ask Medipet for any vet, animal and insurance related information.

A good place to start out is your local pet rescue centre they will often have a range of animals from young dogs or cats to new born kittens and pups. If you are looking for an older animal you are sure to find older animals there too. Talk to your nearest SPCA, DARG or TEARS about the animals that they have and find out from animal associations from vets about animal breeders if you are interested in finding a specific breed of cat or dog for adoption.

had her for less than a week, but have already established a few definitive
character traits, such as her penchant for spicy flavours (she goes crazy when
she smells paprika and pesto), her incredible dislike of Angelina
Jolie, and her wanton appetite for ribbons, shoes, and any stray fingers
that should happen to cross her path.
That's a whole lot of personality! Thanks for sending us the photographs! :-)

- Find a good and reliable vet that you feel comfortable with and are prepared to entrust with your animal’s safety
- Take you cat or dog for regular annual check ups with your vet. This check up is likely to be best to coincide with trips to the vet for your pet’s necessary shots, which are generally given every two years to protect them from viruses and other bugs that could get into their systems
- Make sure that your pet does not have free running access to roads and try to keep them within the gates or walls of your property where possible
- Feeing your animal the right foods that is specifically suited an animal diet and nutritional needs can do wonders for the safety of your animal’s health
- Making sure that your dog is well trained to listen to you is also a great way of ensuring better safety for your animal

You could find flea shampoos, animal edible treats, scratching posts, animal fur brushes, beds, animal blankets and even cat travelling boxes that come in handy should you need to take your animal with you when you are either moving or travelling somewhere.

Flea shampoos can be very effective and fast ways of getting rid of you flea problem but not all animal take very kindly to being dumped into a bath full of water. If your cat or dog can handle a bath then this is probably your best bet. If your animal is not one for baths you could give flea powders or sprays a try. Not all animals like the sound of the spray so you may need to drop the liquid onto them instead. And for something fast and easy you could even try anti-flea tablets that your pet must ingest.

There are a wide range of choices when it comes to your animal’s litter box. You can choose from sand to fine stone gravel to silicone stones to lay out as the filler and absorber in your litter tray. Generally placement is also an aspect that you need to consider as it must be out of the way but still be comfortably accessible to your pet – putting it in the bathroom or on a veranda may be a good idea.

Having a pet sometimes may feel as though you have a child rather than an animal. But this can be a good thing more often than it is troublesome or irritating. Your pet is your lifeline and your ultimate friend so when they are fussing or acting up a bit take the time to see just what it is that they need… or want. Keeping a watchful eye on your cat and dog food is a great way to make sure that your pet is feeling good and healthy. When your cat or dog stops eating, changes their eating habits or just starts eating notably less food, then you know that something may be wrong or troubling them. When we feel ill or slightly off we change our eating habits according to our feelings and animals seem to be no different when they feel otherwise.
By watching for changes in your animal’s more usual habits you can be constantly aware of their changes and so by keeping an eye on your dog’s dog food and your cat’s cat food you can very quickly and simply pick up when they are ill or just not feeling quite their usual vibrant selves.
