Have Them Microchipped
Every year, approximately 10 million cats and dogs go missing in the US. If your pet is chipped, you're more likely to be reunited with them if they ever get lost. The veterinarians at Small Animal Emergency Hospital of Westfield can chip your cat or dog in just a few seconds, and the simple procedure provides long-term peace of mind for you and protection for your four-legged best friend.
Pack Their Stocking with Parasite Preventives
Fleas, ticks, and other parasites are not just disgusting and aggravating. These nasty buggers are hazardous to animals' health, too. They can even cause illness in humans. Even in the winter, it's important to keep your pet on an effective parasite control product. To ensure that you buy safe, effective preventives, we recommend purchasing parasite control products directly from your pet's veterinarian.
Give the Gift of Health with a Wellness Exam
We understand that visiting a vet's office for a physical exam probably does not seem like a great present to your cat or dog. But whether they like it or not, bringing them in for routine care is the key to maintaining their health and happiness. Scheduling a wellness exam for your dog or cat is a caring gift and an excellent way to end the year.
