Regular Vet Check-Up For Your Pets

Do you have pets? If so, how often do you take your pets to the vet for a routine check-up? Mine is annually, the same time as my dog’s vaccine shot update. I also take her when I see she is being lethargic or fussy. However, there is a variety of the number of times you can take your pet to the vet and it all depends as well on their age, size, condition, breed, and type.

It is a good practice though to bring your pet for a regular check up at least once or twice a year just to make sure the vet can spot something odd that you can’t. It is better to catch something earlier than when they are in their advanced stages.

Few months ago, I had to rush my precious baby dog, Millie, to the vet because she was acting lethargic, not eating much and walking super slow when few days before we noticed her sudden change of behaviour and lack of appetite (which was a very rare sight!), we decided a quick visit to the vet was needed. And she was just in the vet few weeks earlier for her vaccine shot.

Her blood work was taken and we were glad it wasn’t negative for anything bad. Rather, she had a pain on her shoulders because she loved to jump around and she probably had a bad fall while we were not at home. So, she was feeling all these pain and not wincing at all. We thought the vet would give antibiotics like simplicef and thank goodness that her blood results were fine. She was given a pain-relief instead for 3 days and surprisingly, as soon as she ingested the first tablet, she was back to her jumpy self.

We made sure she wouldn’t jump on the bed and couch anymore by removing low objects on the way.

So, we were glad we didn’t wait for last minute and decided to do another check-up. Otherwise, we would have seen her condition get worse.

Make it a habit to visit the vet. Take that opportunity to ask questions, clarifications and even tips if you are a first time parent to a furry baby.

Find The Right Insurance Agent

These days, an increasing number of insurance companies has begun to move away from assigning actual insurance agents to their policy holders. As a result, any time you have a question or concern about your policy, you are instructed to call the insurance company’s general 800 number to be connected with an available insurance agent. Each time you call, you will likely speak with a different person. And while you may have your questions answered, not having your own private insurance agent can be inconvenient and also prevents you from developing a personal relationship with your insurance company.

For this reason, it is generally recommended that, when shopping for insurance, you find a company that will provide you with a dedicated insurance agent. This way, any time you have a question, concern, or need to make a change in your policy, you can quickly get through to a person who is familiar with your policy and will be able to assist you.

Of course, knowing what to look for in a Phoenix insurance agent is not always easy. What sets a good insurance agent apart from a not-so-good one? For the most part, you should look for a few main characteristics in an insurance agent: dedication, availability, and helpfulness.

Having an insurance agent who is dedicated can help give you the peace of mind that your agent is always looking out for your best interests. For this reason, it is typically best to find an agent who is local; this way, you can rest assured that he or she will be familiar with your policy, local laws and regulations, and other factors that could affect your coverage. Furthermore, you want an insurance agent who is easy to reach. Your agent should always return your phone calls and e-mails promptly.

Finally, a good insurance agent should be legitimately helpful. He or she should not have to search or ask around to find out the answer to your question or even to make changes to your policy. Essentially, your insurance agent should be able to handle just about anything that has to do with your policy, including the process of filing a claim.

Overall, finding the right insurance agent is not always an easy task. However, it is important that you take the time to find the agent who is right for you so that you will be happy with your policy for a long time to come.


Taking Care Of Your Sliding Doors And Windows


If you live in a place with plenty of sliding windows and doors, you will have to stock up on lubricants to ensure that the bearings will slide off easily on the track and not grind on the railing. However, these kinds of bearings need to be maintained regularly to ensure that they stay on the track and not get rusty or jammed with dust and lints.

Here are some tips to note to keep your sliding doors and windows well maintained:

  • Regularly clean the track area by vacuuming the lints and dust coming from the environment because when they collect and settle on the tracks, those dust and lints can jam the railing and bearings.
  • Dry the railings when it gets wet with old newspaper.
  • Lift the doors and windows every now and then to check on the track for some objects or small rocks that may embed on the bearings or hardware mechanism of the sliding doors and windows.
  • Lubricate regularly after cleaning the track or railing so the bearings will slide off easily on the track.
