3. Out with the old and in with the new
About once a month, it’s a good idea to take stock of what supplies you have on hand for your pet. Examine the date on bags of food as well as any packages of treats, catnip or dog bones. If anything has expired, throw it out and put the item on your shopping list. You should also check on the condition of all your pet’s toys. If the stuffing is coming out of your dog’s favorite chew toy and your cat’s feather wand is broken, it’s time to toss them. Those objects will be easy to replace during your next trip to the pet store.
