If you have a new pet, the seemingly routine and simple can be scary and intimidating.  Don't feel bad if you are unsure of the ins-and-outs of daily care for your new furry loved one.  You are not alone.  Every new pet owner goes through the same thing.  It is our job to let you know what you need to do, how to do it, when to do it, and why you need to do it.  Do not be afraid to call us and ask questions.  We expect it, and we look forward to teaching new pet owners how to care for their new "child"!  Much like parenting doesn't come with an instruction manual, neither does pet ownership.  Hopefully the information we are providing here will help you feel more confident about caring for your pet.  If not, give us a call, or feel free to stop by and we can demonstrate!
