April 1st to May 2nd is National Pet Month, and time to celebrate for all true Pet lovers!
Where else, for many, can we guarantee unconditional love, lack of being judged, and sheer delight at being together? What can we offer in return for such love? National Pet Month has some suggestions.
National Pet Month applauds and promotes responsible pet ownership, whilst prompting less aware owners to improve their stewardship of a pet. National Pet Month also encourages Veterinary practices, pet friendly businesses, groups and individuals to attend and take part in events aimed at raising money for local Pet Charities.
National Pet Month is in its 27th year and is stronger and more actively followed with each passing year. This year the plans are to celebrate the wonderful beneficial impact that Pets have on the everyday lives of people and we suggest a number of recommendations on how people may reciprocate the love and trust that our pets offer us.
The National Pet Month top ten tips, plus one are:
Most importantly, get your dog micro chipped.
All dogs must be fitted with a microchip from April 6th, by Law. To avoid a £500 fine, ask your local veterinary surgeon for advice. The procedure is painless, simply done, low cost, and the chip carries important Identification information allowing your beloved dog to be returned to you in the event of theft or its getting lost.
