What are monthly preventatives for dogs? For dogs we recommend a monthly pill (either Trifexis or Sentinel) and for cats we recommend a topical medication called Revolution. These medications also prevent intestinal parasites and fleas.

What kind of care does a dog need everyday? Help keep your dog clean and reduce shedding with frequent brushing. Check for fleas and ticks daily during warm weather. Most dogs don’t need to be bathed more than a few times a year. Before bathing, comb or cut out all mats from the coat.
Can you put life insurance on a dog? As with life insurance for humans, insuring your pet’s life will cover funeral expenses. Pet policies also provide reimbursement for the animal’s value, including if it’s stolen or otherwise disappears — which are surprisingly common occurrences, given the cost of many purebred pets.
