Routine care checklist for cats and dogs

Owning a pet can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, but with this reward comes responsibility. Ensuring your pets are in tip top shape with a good pet care routine will mean a healthy and fulfilling experience for both you and furry friends.

That’s why we’ve compiled a downloadable pet care checklist in conjunction with Dr Rosemary Elliott, a licensed veterinarian from the University of Sydney with a strong focus on animal welfare and ethics.

This checklist covers treatment and care for both cats and dogs. Some of the items included are outlined below.
