New Years Resolutions for Your Pet

The new year isn’t only a time to consider resolutions for yourself, but also time to consider resolutions for your pet! We’ve put together a list of resolutions that you may want to consider implementing for your pet in the new year to help better their health and wellness!

Register your cat and/or dog with the city

Visit your local veterinarian or SPCA to register your pet for the upcoming calendar year. It is mandatory for dogs to be licensed with the province of New Brunswick. Without registration, you may be subject to a fine.

Find out if your pet is up to date on vaccinations

Contact your family veterinarian to determine if your animal is up to date on the recommended vaccines. If not, go ahead and schedule an appointment to get them updated!

Think about an annual wellness examination

Regardless of vaccine status, when was the last time your pet visited the veterinarian? It is recommended that all pets, exotics included, visit the veterinarian a minimum of once yearly for a physical examination and consultation. Consider scheduling a wellness exam for your pet in the new year.

Consider a microchip

If your pet isn’t already microchipped, this is a great resolution for them!
What exactly is a microchip? It is a small scannable chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted under your pet’s skin. This small piece of technology allows your animal to be scanned by veterinarians or SPCAs if they escape and are brought in to these facilities. By keeping your microchip up to date, you can be contacted if your animal is found and scanned.

Did you know that we can microchip most exotics as well? Talk to your veterinarian to determine if microchipping is an option for your pet.

Work toward reaching/maintain a healthy weight

Exercise and a healthy diet are great resolutions for both humans and their furry/feathered/scaly counterparts! If you are unsure of the ideal diet and exercise recommendations for your animal, please contact your veterinary team.
