Animals affected

Dogs, Cats






Adopting a pet means taking responsibility for their physical and emotional wellbeing.

By physical health we are referring to the absence of disease, correct prevention and good feeding habits. Give them good quality food according to their needs, take them to the vet for regular check-ups, sterilise and vaccinating them, deworm them periodically. All these good practises help to improve their quality of life.

These are the topics that we will see throughout this section. How sterilising not only improves your pet’s health, but also helps to halt the growth and overpopulation of dogs and cats in our cities. We’ll see a list of the most common parasites and how to detect them. We will also see a list of common diseases and the dangers which we may face when we take responsibility for an animal. These include the fear of fireworks and loud bangs, the herbs and plants that may poison them, the famous pine processionary and what to do when we come across it, as well as toxic products and heat stroke.

Read on to gain peace of mind and quality of life for your family.
