One of the things that you might do that shortens your dog’s life is skipping vet appointments. According to leading canine experts, you should take your dog for a wellness visit with their vet at least once a year.
We were surprised to hear that if you have a puppy, you should take them to the vet every three to four weeks, at least until they are six months old. This is for shots, exams, and other vet-related services that puppies need, including getting spayed or neutered.
