PREVENTATIVE CARE FOR PETS: How do I choose what’s best for my dog?
The possibilities are endless. So many vaccinations, pet foods, and other products and services exist for dogs, and so many people are willing to give you advice about which to choose. One of the best ways to start planning a healthcare program for your pet is to do an analysis of his or her risk factors. This will help you narrow your choices and select those that make the most sense. You should also work with your pet’s veterinarian to decide what’s right in your situation. Well-meaning but misguided advice from groomers, feed mill or pet store employees, friends and neighbors, and even internet sites like this one, can never replace the expertise of a trained professional doctor who knows you and your dog.
