Paw Prints: Don't forget to make a New Year's resolution for your pet too


Be prepared and sign Fido and Fluffy up for health insurance before illness strikes. Your veterinary team can discuss different plans with you.

10. Appreciate the ones you love. Our families include two-legged and four-legged members. They’re all part of the circle that provides us with love, peace and happiness all year. Take time to let them know how much they mean to you. Everyone has their own way of communicating love and affection.

For me and my pets, it’s an extra walk with my dog and precious snuggle time with my cats.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a safe and happy new year.
