To protect your pet from contagious diseases,
keep his essential vaccinations up-to-date. This
is important even if your pet is kept mostly
indoors. Many contagious diseases are airborne
and your pet could easily be exposed through an
open window. Boarding kennels, dog parks and
grooming salons are all areas where your pet is
likely to be exposed to contagious diseases.
It is also important to keep in mind that vaccinations take a few days to a few weeks to become effective.
為了保護您的寵物免受傳染病的侵害，請保持最新的疫苗接種。 即使你的寵物主要在室內活動，這一點同樣重要。 許多傳染性疾病都是空氣中傳播的，寵物們很容易透過窗戶而接觸病菌。 寵物寄宿，狗公園以及美容中心亦是寵物可能接觸傳染病的媒界。
Tortoises are a family, Testudinidae, of
land-dwelling reptiles in the order Testudines.
Tortoises are shielded from predators by a
shell. The top part of the shell is the
carapace, the underside is the plastron, and the
two are connected by the bridge. The carapace is
fused to both the vertebrae and ribcage, and
tortoises are unique among vertebrates in that
the pectoral and pelvic girdles are inside the
ribcage rather than outside. Tortoises can vary
in size from a few centimeters to two meters.
They are usually diurnal animals with tendencies
to be crepuscular depending on the ambient
temperatures. They are generally reclusive
animals. Tortoises are the longest living land
animal in the world, although the longest living
species of tortoise is a matter of debate.
龜是一種於陸地棲息的爬行動物，龜同時以外殼防禦掠食者們。龜上方是甲殼，下方則是腹板。 甲殼與椎骨和肋骨融合在一起，龜在脊椎動物中是獨一無二的，因為胸部和盆腔腰帶位於胸腔而不是外側。烏龜的大小可以從幾厘米到兩米不等。 它們通常是晝夜動物，通常是隱居的動物。龜是世界上居住時間最長的動物，儘管烏龜的長壽是一個爭議的問題。
