You will have your own best friend, who will be there for you when you want company, and a good stress reliever as well. Plus, your dog is loyal to you. Who would not want a dog to be part of any one’s life, right? Of course, there is a responsibility at your end to be able to take care of your dog and provide its basic needs.

The following are easy to follow tips when it comes to taking care of your pet dog:

One of the basics of quality is life to provide a healthy and clean environment for your pet. You need to have a shelter wherein your dog is not going to be prone to hazards and all harmful elements. Plus, good hygiene needs to be practiced, too. Do take note of that.

  1. Freshwater is readily available.

Dogs like humans do need to be always hydrated this is to make them be filled with energy and have good health. Thus, do make sure that you do have fresh water readily available for your dog to drink.

  1. Quality diet.

Next on the list would provide your dog with a quality diet. Like humans, too, being obese impose a huge risk on health. The same thing with dogs. They are going to be affected one way or the other; what’s worst it may lead to further complications if not well attended to. So, what you need to do is to follow through the dietary recommendations given by your veterinarian according to what the nutritional needs of your dog is, based on its breed, level of activity, size, and age. Also, when it comes to giving treats do give healthy ones instead of scraps.

  1. Visit the veterinarian regularly.

Just like humans, we do need to have a regular checkup with our doctor. Same thing with dogs too. It is highly advisable to go and ask the veterinarian about scheduled vaccination, external parasite control and deworming. Be sure that you do have a copy of the vaccination records of your dog at home and even when you travel as well. If you have seen your dog is acting weird, or it has been injured, or ill, do contact your veterinarian immediately. Be sure to tell to your veterinarian everything.

  1. Exercise.

Your dog needs to move its limbs, and breathe fresh air. So, it is advisable that you do have daily walks with your dog so that it will stay fit. When your dog is on its top to toe shape, guess what? Your dog will have all the energy required to do certain activities it enjoys fully. Plus, playing and training your dog will be a lot of fun than usual. How’s that for something to look forward to?

Finding Good Veterinary Care

So you’ve become a parent to a new dog, or cat, or reptile, or bird, or whatever animal you’ve decided to welcome to your home. Things are great! But what do you do when they are in need of medical care? Not only do they need care when they are sick or have an injury, but all responsible pet owners should bring their pets to a veterinarian at least once, if not twice, per year for checkups to make sure everything is going alright.

But how do you find the best vet in Florida to take care of your furry friend? Keep reading for some tips on how to get the best care for your animals.

Getting the Best Vet Service in Florida

Just as important it is to keep up with grooming (by using someone like Fancy Pets), you need to stay on top of your pets’ health. For us, we think that the best way to get pointed in the right direction is through word of mouth. For our golden retriever, we were pointed to Gentle Care Animal Hospital in Fort Lauderdale thanks to the woman at the golden rescue who had nothing but good things to say about them.

We have been absolutely blessed with the care we have received there for our dog and two cats and couldn’t imagine a better provider, whether it be resolving a snotty nose and sneezes or just getting a general checkup.

Word of mouth, talking to your social network of friends and family, should work for getting general care, but what about more specialized services? If you’re looking for things that are a little more out there, like holistic services (we have a friend who works in holistic drug rehab who got us into this stuff), going to Google and doing an internet search may be better for pointing you in the right direction.

Aside from that, if you rescued your animal from a shelter, many of them have veterinary services on-site and can take appointments to care for your animals. In our experiences, however, the quality of the care can vary from place to place.

For instance, after bringing our first cat home from a certain shelter in the Fort Lauderdale area, she was sick and blowing snot and sneezing everywhere. We took her back to the shelter since they offered free services for 30 days after adoption. She was given medication, but that did not effectively clear up her issues. After taking her to Gentle Care a little later on, everything was sufficiently cured.

Between talking to your network, doing an internet search, and sometimes trial and error with different providers, you’ll eventually find a vet that you and your pet(s) love. They deserve the best, so make sure you are giving them the best care that they can get! It’s no fun having a sick pet, so stay on top of things before they manifest into something worse (and more expensive!). Be proactive instead of reactive and everything will be easier.

Fancy Pets Mobile Pet Grooming

We used to take our dogs to another provider for their grooming, as well as their boarding, but when they popped up in the news for animal cruelty, it was absolutely time that we found another provider for these kinds of services.

Luckily, we see different mobile grooming vans all the time parked in our neighborhood taking care of the pets that live near us. We also turned to our local community Facebook group for some suggestions, and a consensus was made on Fancy Pets.

Our Experience with Fancy Pets

Everything from start to finish was easy with fancy pets mobile grooming services. They answered our call immediately when we rang them up (we tried with one other provider and the phone rang to voicemail, and we later heard from them at the end of the business day) and were able to get our dogs an appointment in the next couple days. We were surprised at getting them in so quickly, but happy since we were wanting to get them cleaned up before some company came over later in the week.

Our dogs love to meet new people, so when the groomer came to our door they greeted him happily and wagged their tails and jumped all over him. They were taken to the van parked right outside the house and taken well care of throughout.

The dogs both got baths and a haircut. They are two little terriers, a Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) and a Maltie-Poo (Maltese/Poodle), so their fur tends to get pretty matted and does not hide dirt very well as they are both light in color. They came out looking spic and span after their bath, and the groomer did a great job at getting the matting out without having to shave their fur down tight.

We love having a service that makes appointments to your house. They arrive on time and are done within an hour, for two dogs no less. Having a busy work schedule, and also family activities to tend to (children in school and athletics), it can be tough to go visit a groomer. It’s great that they come to your house and are done quickly, meanwhile not sacrificing the quality of the job.

When we called them for a second appointment for the dogs a couple months later, they recognized the phone number. They knew where we lived and who our dogs were. They truly care about their customers and go the extra mile to make sure everything is taken care of.

Fancy Pets has definitely become our new provider for getting the dogs bathed and groomed. They’re another one of the best pet services in Florida we talk about on this site. The dogs seem to love it, and they come out looking great. Our female dog gets bows in her hair and looks cute. The price of the services, importantly, is right. We highly recommend using them if you are in the Broward County area.
