February is a month about love. It also happens to be Responsible Pet Owners Month with February 20th designated as National Love Your Pet Day only 6 days after Valentine’s Day. You can be a responsible pet owner by spaying or neutering your pet, keeping regular visits with your veterinarian for health and dental check-ups,  read books and/or articles about caring for your pet, not leaving your pets unattended and having a plan for your pet should an unseen emergency arise. Lastly, celebrate your pet and give as much love as your pets give back to you.
