Start the year off on the right paw and resolve to make 2021 the best year ever for you and your pet!
Spend a small amount of time each day teaching your pet a new trick. It only takes 10-15 minutes per day and before you know it you'll be showing off your cat giving high fives or your dog playing dead. Teaching your pet a trick is mentally stimulating, fun and helps to strengthen the bond between you.
We've all probably put on an extra few kilos over Christmas, but an extra kilo on a cat or a dog is equivalent to tens of extra kilos on a person! Ensuring your pet is a healthy weight helps to reduce the strain on their joints and can help to extend their life span by reducing their risk of developing weight-related health concerns.
Resolve to spend more time exploring the great outdoors with your pet in 2021. Go on hikes, visit the beach or take your cat out on a leash or in a pram. Getting out and about can help you both to shift those extra kilos and adequate exercise helps to prevent boredom.
The new year is a great time to take a look at your pet's diet and ensure it is still appropriate for them. Our pets age faster than we do, so it may be time to move to a senior food as your pet slows down. Consider if adding certain supplements to their diet like joint support or fish oil may benefit. Make the switch to healthier treats and cut back on feeding them from the table.
Regular vet visits are crucial for ensuring your pet is in good health and can help to catch diseases before they become a problem.
