New social media features

by ferretpapa

I've noticed some people have multiple Instagram/Facebook profiles that they want to share, so I made some improvements. Previously you were limited to one of each type, and you could not control what order they were in.

Well, now you can add as many social media profiles as you want! And you can drag and drop to rearrange them just like you can with your profile links. Just head over to your Edit Profile page to update your social links.

I also added Twitch as a new option. Any other social media platforms I should add?

But some health issues can surface at a very young age. Once they get middle-aged I highly recommend going annually even if nothing appears to be wrong.

An annual exam is a good investment. Your vet will be able to examine their body, feel for any masses in their abdomen, and listen to their heart beat for any irregularities. If everything checks out, then you can have some peace of mind.
