In this module you defined the three main areas of animal welfare and the basic elements of responsible animal care that go into proving for such welfare. With those in mind, you then examined the characteristics of cat and dog breeds, specifically the breed of your pet. Finally, you looked at how to monitor the health of your cat or dog. While some specifics may vary depending on the age / activity level of your pet (something which we will discuss in the next module), the areas of animal welfare and general indicators of good health we discussed pertain to all breeds.
