Resolutions for Your Pet

Did you make any resolutions for 2014? We’re a week into the new year — are you still sticking to them? If so, good for you! But if not, don’t worry about it. Every day provides the opportunity for change. And not just for you — you can make resolutions for your pets, too!

Did you know that more than 50% of the pets in the United States are considered overweight? To protect the health of your pet and ensure you can enjoy his long life, commit to these resolutions this year:

Measure your pet’s food, keeping in mind both the recommendations on the label and your pet’s nutritional needs. 

Try a new exercise activity with your pet. This will help both of you have a healthier year!

Contact your local vet now and set an annual appointment for your pet. 

Commit to daily grooming. Not only will daily brushing cut down on shedding and lead to a healthier coat, it’s a great way for you and your dog or cat to bond.

Keep your pet’s mind active with a new skill. That’s right — you can teach an old dog new tricks! Another option is giving a pet a puzzle toy with a treat inside. These are both great ways to keep your older pet’s brain sharp.
