The Countdown is on to 2015!
With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, the team here at Guelph Animal Hospital has been busy getting ready for the festivities. There’s an excitement in the air as we make last minute preparations for an evening of celebration. We can’t wait to ring in the New Year with all of our families, friends and pets!
But once the calendar flips forward, the last drop of champagne has been drunk and the remaining extra piece of kibble has been eaten, it will be time for us all to get down to business. And by ‘business’, we mean reflecting on the past year and coming up with our New Year’s resolutions. On the human side of things, popular goals for the upcoming months can include things such as, taking up a new hobby, quitting smoking or joining a gym. However, resolutions don’t just have to be for people. We can make pledges for our pets too! Here are some suggestions:
1. Learn how to brush your pet’s teeth (ask us!)
2. Pre-Schedule an Annual Exam and Heartworm visit and mark them down in your calendar
3. Get your pet microchipped or update your contact information
4. Establish an exercise routine
5. Get your animal spayed or neutered
If these ideas don’t suit your fancy, not to worry! We spoke with some of our own four-legged experts, and they were more than happy to share what they plan on working on for 2015:
“I get really excited for my food, and this year I am going to try really hard to wait patiently and not take my eagerness out on my brothers and sisters. I guess I can be a little rough. Wimps….”
