Additional information:

Your pet's overall health and well-being are rightly determined by the routines you set up for them, and although both humans and pets benefit greatly from keeping each other's company, some pets come predisposed to certain medical conditions that can show over the course of their lifetime. Knowing your pet's health history as well as following the steps outlined above will help you determine whether their routine needs to be modified to improve their well-being or if everything is going A-OK. Pet insurance can also cover most if not all of the medical procedures for your pet while covering up to 90% of your vet bill.
