Puppies and kittens! They’re absolutely adorable, but let’s face it: they seem to get into a lot more trouble than their older, more mature counterparts. Even if you’ve baby-proofed, it’s hard to keep your puppy from eating a candy wrapper, shoe, phone charger, you name it. Younger pets are still growing into their bodies and have weaker immune systems which puts them at a higher risk to clumsily get hurt or fall ill.
While you can be on top of things as far as vaccinations and flea preventatives, there is no way to be ready for the unexpected. They could easily fall off furniture or down stairs and who knows what they might find while exploring outside. We like to hope our pets are invincible, but accidents happen
