Meet Our Veterinarians

Our team of highly skilled veterinary professionals’ highest priority is getting to know you and your pet so they can develop and implement the most personalized and effective health care plan to keep your companion happy and healthy throughout their life.

Which Pet-Related Chores Can Your Child Help With?

Your kids love your pets, and your pets love your kids–but that doesn’t mean your kids can properly take care of pets all the time. While it’s important for children to learn how to take good care of a pet, you should always keep their age in mind and slowly build up their skills over time. 


Young children under the age of 6 should never be given control of a leash, no matter how small or calm your pet is. Not only are their motor skills not fully developed, leaving them unable to control an animal, it’s likely that your pet weighs the same amount as they do–or more. However, young kids can and should be invited to come along on walks. Older children (10 and up) may be able to handle the leash, but they should always be supervised by an adult and have received some practice in the backyard or another fenced-in area. 

Meals & Feeding

It’s important to measure out any pet food or portions yourself, especially if your child is under the age of 6. However, once it has been measured, you can allow them to put the food in the bowl and place it in your pet’s feeding area under direct supervision. Once your child is past the age of 7, involve them with proper clean-up to create healthy habits. Children age 10 and up can be entrusted with feeding, provided they know how to portion correctly and can clean up afterwards–they may still need some reminders to ensure that they always remember when your pet needs their next meal. 


Children of all ages should be given the time and space to play with pets. However, an adult should always supervise, especially if the child is under 6 years old. Young children may not know when they’re being too rough, and a larger pet could accidentally overpower the smaller child. Make sure safety is the first priority, so your pets and kids can play together and create memories to last a lifetime. 

If you have any questions about what is and isn’t appropriate for your child, don’t hesitate to contact your veterinarian today for professional advice.
