Between family, work, friends and everything in between… life is busy. There’s almost a sense of gratitude our loyal companions simply take up their loving position at home, not adding to the chaos of ‘who has to be where and when.

But as a pet owner, there are yearly housekeeping reminders that must be remembered to maintain the basic health, safety and wellbeing of your fur baby.

Parenting checklist

1. Yearly Vaccination

Annual vaccination is a must for pets to ensure they remain healthy and protected from deadly viruses in the environment. If not carried out on time, your pet is at risk of contracting the diseases from other unprotected or contagious animals and potentially becoming very unwell.

2. Yearly preventative care

Preventative care, just like vaccinations, is an ongoing requirement for your pet to maintain health and wellbeing. As a minimum, your pet will need regular doses of flea and tick treatment, intestinal worming tablets and in some geographical locations, heartworm prevention too.

3. Microchipping details

Have you moved houses recently or changed mobile numbers? If you have then it is likely you have forgotten that there is a chip inside your pet that contains all of your old information. It is important that if ownership of the animal or contact details has recently
changed, that this information is updated through the state microchipping platform as soon as possible.

4. Yearly pet registration

If you choose to own a pet, then you must abide by local council laws and registration for animals. If registration is not performed yearly, you risk a hefty fine by the Animal Management Council. Registration also helps reunite lost pets with their owners.

5. ID Tags

ID tags are the best way to prevent your pet from ending up at the veterinary clinic or local pound. Sometimes tags can get scratched, fade or break off and your pet can no longer be identified. To ensure you can be contacted if required, ensure your pet’s tag is still easy to read and updated with any changes.

There’s nothing worse than reoccurring guilt when you can’t recall the last time you gave your fur baby their flea treatment or worming tablet, and was it September or December that they needed their yearly vaccine? Even more, confronting though is when you suddenly notice that your once active puppy or kitten, has now reached its’ senior years.

Your PetPA allows you to keep on top of these things year after year! Our goal is to ensure that every pet is living its best and healthiest life for its life stage and to provide you with all your pet care needs at the tip of your fingers.
