There are many ways that you can ensure the health and safety of your furry friend. Here we will take a look at 5 of the top ways to keep him safe, secure and sound.

Microchips ensure that, if your pet is lost, the finders know exactly who to call to return him to his proper home. The results of using this chip, to date, have been amazing.
- Use a Leash
Whenever you plan to go out with your pet, be sure that you have a leash in hand and that your pet is on it at all times. You never know what will catch your pet’s eye and send him running, only to be unable to find his way back.
- See the Vet
Your pet needs vaccinations to stay healthy, as well as regular visits to ensure that he or she is always in the best of health. Do not skimp on those vet trips!
- Keep Poisons away from Pets
Common household cleaners, sprays, etc. are dangerous to your pet. While you might think they won’t bother these items, the truth is, they may very well decide to ponder inside, causing themselves illness or worse. Keep these items put away in a safe place.
- Spay or Neuter your Pet
