Pets and Health

Pets are part of the family. They bring great joy and comfort to their owners. They also can help pet owners improve their own health. For example, when you walk your dog, you are also walking yourself. When you protect your cat from fleas, you are protecting everyone else in the family from fleas.

Protect the WHOLE family. Educate yourself about animal health.
