Animals from the cities go to the country
The holiday season is a wonderful time not only for us but for our Pets – cats and dogs. They get unlimited freedom, the joy together with us stay in nature and, like us, with nostalgia, this delightful period in the winter. Believe me, they are waiting for it again no less than we are.
Pets are equal members of the family and the attitude towards them, sometimes, is the same as for loved ones. Their health and mood is important for us not less, than ours. To ensure that our Pets remain cheerful and active throughout the summer season, we want to give you some advice of a veterinarian. Here are some points that you need to pay attention.
