favorite animal and put the rian dr. jill chase. your pet owners and pet lovers out there, every friday we take your questions about your favorite animal and then put them to veterinarian dr. jill chase. thanks for joining us today. >> thank you. >> many people they treat their pets like members of the family and then when they get sick and they need care, it can be pretty expensive. so we all want to know how to keep our pets out of the vet's office. >> yeah. actually i'm completely a supporter of that. so i think the most important thing i could tell you about how to do that is animals tend to mask their symptoms. so owners often times when they first notice a symptom, it's probably been going on longer sometimes days, sometimes weeks, sometimes months. so my recommendation to my owners which works really well is to make sure that if there's a change, no matter what it is, a change in appetite, change in energy level, water consumption, urination, doesn't matter, there should be a phone call within 24 hours that just says, i think there's something up. you told me to call, here's the
deal. sometimes i'll say that's great, not a problem, other times not. >> you need to pay attention. >> that's correct. so by using that, that is a great way of getting them in early and making sure that you're not spending a lot of money because you're able to catch it really, really early. and then i would say annual exams are very important. a lot of times owners are wondering why we should take the pet in every year because when we are looking at the animal and listening to its owner, we can pick things up early. so it's important. and animals over 8 years old should get blood and urine as well as the regular exam. >> when you are familiar with the pet and you have seen this pet every year and you know -- that's easier for you, right? >> actually, it's really nice if you have a good veterinarian that you see every year with your pet because they do have memory that veterinarian has memory when they're looking and they remember your pet and they can tell the changes. yeah, that's ideal, actually. >> and food really makes a difference. >> right. i was going to mention, it's
really great to feed a veterinarian-recommended diet. i think we are going to talk about that in the future in another segment, different foods and what we recommend. but excellent nutrition is great. calling your vet is great. staying on top of things is really good. >> so don't feed your pet potato chips. >> no, we're not big on people food. that's a problem. >> all right. you always give us good tips. >> thank you. >> thanks so much. we want to hear from you, too. email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. post them on our facebook page, just search "kpix." frank? >> all right. michelle and dr. jill, thank you. your toast and crepes may be in danger because of a shortage of a sweet treat. what's quickly becoming hard to find on store shelves. coming up next. stay right there. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
