By PetMD Editorial on Feb. 14, 2019

Providing the best possible pet care for our furry family members is every pet parent’s goal. To keep a pet happy and healthy, there several duties that responsible pet owners perform routinely.

From maintaining dental care at home and scheduling professional dental cleanings to staying current with heartworm prevention, prescription flea and tick prevention, and annual vet visits, there are a variety of pet care tasks you can actively perform to promote the health of your pet weekly, monthly and annually.

There are also tasks you can do daily to help keep your pet happy. A clean litter box, food bowl or water bowl can go a long way for maintaining good health.

While there may be a lot of duties to keep up with when it comes to taking care of a pet, these are some of the most important things you can do as a pet owner to love and care for your furry family member.
