SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- National Pet Week, May 4-10, celebrates the relationships formed between humans and animals and is a great opportunity to emphasize the caretaking actions we can take for our animal friends, including providing regular health care as recommended by your veterinarian; giving them plenty of attention, exercise, and companionship; and keeping the environment for your pets safe and pleasant.

area, so it can han
