Joyce Pring, Issa Pressman call for responsible pet ownership
MANILA, Philippines — Celebrity pet lovers Joyce Pring and Issa Pressman urged the public on Wednesday to bring their pets to a veterinarian, noting that prevention is always better than cure.
Pring, a fur-mother to his one-year-old Shiba-Inu Bowie, said that pet owners should always make sure that their pets are healthy and free from any sickness.
“If you really love your dogs, the most important thing is to take care of them and make sure that they’re healthy by bringing them regularly to the vets,“ she told INQUIRER.net in an interview after the launch of a campaign for dogs.
According to Pring, she used to experience a lot of anxiety before she decided to get her own dog, which is Bowie.
Despite his, she noted that they have other dogs in their home.
“Bowie really helps me out by really relieving my stress. He’s the type of dog that he senses it when I’m sick. He senses it when I’m very tired. And as for having him in my home, it really helps me,” she said. “I feel like dogs are such a blessing to our lives and I really overcome a lot of stresses by having Bowie by my side.”
In the case of Pressman, she said that dogs could not really express what they feel so it would be best if pet owners could bring their dogs to the vet.
“Assuming won’t take us anywhere,” she said.
Pressman, who owns seven dogs, admitted that she took her dogs to the doctor every month, or at least quarterly, for regular check-ups.
She added that her two-and-a-half-year-old Killa also got nail treatment during every visit to her vet.
She then encouraged pet owners like her to keep the love burning for the dogs. She also urged pet lovers to support advocacies calling for saving dogs.
“Keep that love and also I honestly think that a day would not ever turn bad because of dogs. Dogs will always give you a reason to smile and feel you comfortable,” Pressman said when asked for her message to other dog owners.
“If you like dogs lovers also, you could also like support advocacies or actions or movements of saving the lives of dogs or puppies then you should because pets.. they are life,” Pressman said.
Pring and Pressman made their statement in line with the launch of the “Bring My Dog to the Vet” campaign of pet advocate Royal Canin.
Under the campaign, Royal Canin emphasized the role of veterinarian expertise and regular preventive check-ups in ensuring pets’ general health.
It also highlighted that it is the best time to educate dog owners about preventive healthcare as an essential part of responsible pet ownership.
