We all want our pets to live their best life. Taking a proactive approach to their wellbeing means we can catch problems early including skin conditions (such as allergic disease in dogs) or arthritis (stiff or painful joints) in cats and dogs. Being in tune with our pets and knowing what symptoms to look out for can help us give our cat and dog companions an enjoyable future.
