5 Good Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Want to do something for your pet that is great for his health and is also an act of responsible pet ownership? Have your animal spayed or neutered. When you make the decision to spay or neuter a pet, you are also making a socially responsible choice — each year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized.

So when would a pet owner not want to spay or neuter a pet? According to Bonnie Beaver, DVM, a professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University, the only instance should be if the dog or cat is a breeding animal.

DIY Cat Puzzle Tutorial

Let’s face it, we’re busy! Sometimes too busy to spend precious time with our pets and we have to look for ways to keep them occupied while we’re away at work or running errands.

While I was browsing Pinterest (feel free to follow Berks Pet Care here), I found this cool diy project for our lovable furry feline friends. This cat puzzle will definitely keep them occupied for hours and it won’t hurt your pocketbook or wallet.

I was able to create one for a client of mine for only a few dollars, and that was only because I had to buy cat toys to put inside of the new diy puzzle. If you have cat toys already around the house, you can make this for as little as $2! Just make sure that if you have more than one cat in your home, you make one for each of your furry friends so they all can play at the same time. Enjoy!
