No worries, understanding pet health takes time and research. Better late than never right?
Is the health of your dog a priority for you?
No one loves us purely and unconditionally like our furry family members. The best feeling is when, at the end of a long day, your dog is there to greet you with a wag and a big lick on your face.
Keeping your dog healthy is probably one of the most important things for you and your dog. It’s devastating to think that something bad like illnesses or an accident can happen.
The sad reality is, as devastating as it sounds, it is way too common for unexpected things to happen. For example, in the US alone there are more than 6 million car crashes each year involving pets.
Here are a few examples of unexpected situations or illnesses:
- Dog gets hit by a car
- Animal bites
- Broken limb or tail
- Ingestion of toxic food or foreign item
When your beloved furry friend gets sick or injured, you might be forced to make tough decisions while under an enormous amount of stress & pressure. In addition to the stressful situation, emergency vet visits are expensive. The average bill in the U.S. is between $800 and $1500.
