May is Puppy and Kitten Awareness Month!
We know that our patients love their pets. We love them too! Which is why we wanted to spread the word to our patients and their families and friends that May is puppy and kitten awareness month. Even though we are always peripherally aware of all the things we need to do to maintain the health and safety of our pets, we also get caught up in dealing with all of our other responsibilities as well. This can lead to lapses in vet visits for your pet or forgetting to take care of certain routine maintenance tasks such as oral hygiene.
One of the nice things about Awareness Days is that they can serve as a gentle reminder to catch up on any necessary health checks for your pet. They can also act as incentive for you to give your pets some extra TLC if your schedule has kept you too busy to spend a lot of time with them.
Things to do For Your Puppy or Kitten During Awareness Month
Of course, one of the most obvious things to do during puppy and kitten awareness month is to take your pet to the vet if you’re behind on wellness checkups.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, there are several days and weeks during the month of May designated to honor various animals, so you can show your pet love by participating in some of the specific activities meant to promote caring for furry friends and to raise awareness about important pet-related issues. Events for the month of May include:
- Be Kind to Animals Week
- National Animal Preparedness Disaster Day
- National Pet Week
- National Specially-Abled Pets Day
