Dr. Daisy here with an update! Did you guys and gals know with it being May 4th, we’re right in the middle of National Pet Week! Here at The Pet Doctor that’s one of our favorite times of the year. Honestly Frederick doesn’t need another reason to elicit praise from all those around him, but the rest of the pets of the world have earned it! National Pet Week was first created in 1981 by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) as a way to celebrate the many pets here in America. It’s always celebrated the first full week in May. Ever wonder how many of us there are? Over 200 million, so don’t you think we deserve some praise? Take some time this week to bolster the bond between you and your fur family. There are always there for you unconditionally loving you and making your life better. Whether it’s through their wet kisses or the laughs they bring you, they improve your life.

With that praise comes tender care as well. The first week of May is the perfect time to bring in your furry family member for their annual checkup. The best way to show your appreciation for your pet is to make sure they are up to date on their vaccines and in peak healthy condition. This is the start of spring so allergies are starting to come back into play again, and no one enjoys that. So, if your pet is on an allergy medication you need to make sure to keep up with their medication and don’t let it lapse. We’ll be glad to see them here at The Pet Doctor. Enjoy National Pet Week and make sure to add it to your calendar every year!

Side note: Sir Frederick will accept all praise in the form of cheesy puffs ant any time of the year not just this week. He said it was important that I add that. *sigh*
