Dr. Rick Campbell from Willow Creek Pet Care Center talks about keeping our pets healthy and happy.
Many pets are living more than twenty years because people are treating them more like members of the family. Health care for pets is getting better as well.
You can minimize the cost of health care for your pets by making sure you keep them as healthy as possible.
There's one thing many Americans are doing wrong.. they are excessively feeding and under-exercising their pets. More than two-thirds of America's pets are overweight. And, most avoidable health problems are related to pets' weight.
We think we're being nice to our pets when we give them "treats". But, table scraps are very bad for pets.
Dr. Campbell says health care could be rephrased.... "care for our health and the health of our pets".
