Educating yourself about pet care and pet health is very important.
Certain breeds are predisposed to certain diseases, such as heart problems, joint or spinal problems,
bloat, urinary tract problems, immune-mediated diseases and certain types of tumors.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) website is an excellent online resource
for free information on animal health, diseases and diagnoses.
Also be sure to research the breed before purchasing your pet.

Prevention & Wellness
Vaccines to prevent infectious diseases, heart-worm medication,
and flea and tick control can help keep your pet from getting life-threatening diseases.
Spaying or neutering your dog can prevent problems such as straying and fighting,
unplanned pregnancy, uterine or prostate infections and dystocia (difficulty with birthing).
Confining and controlling your pet's environment can also greatly reduce chances of trauma or toxin exposure.
Early Intervention & Treatment
Early treatment of disease is likely to be not only more effective but also less expensive.
Very young, very old, debilitated pets, or pets with pre-existing health problems may be more likely to get very ill quickly.
Multiple problems or indications of severe disease (coma, weakness, seizures)
may indicate that your pet needs to be seen on an emergency basis.
