Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions for 2019? If so, why not include your pet in your goals? Read on as a Coon Rapids, MN vet lists some resolutions for both people and pets.
Dietary changes are a very popular resolution. Good nutrition is very important for both people and pets! Choose healthy foods for yourself, and feed your animal companion a premium, high-quality pet food. It’s also a good idea to limit fatty snacks for both you and your pet.
Make sure that both you and your pet are getting enough exercise. Of course, it’s also important to make working out fun. Whether you like dancing, kickboxing, running, or just hitting the gym, you’ll have much better results if you do something you like. This also applies to pets. Keep Fluffy moving by playing with her regularly and offering her pet furniture that encourages her to stay active. As for Fido, keep him fit by walking him and playing with him. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.
Keep Up With Wellness Care
Going to the doctor regularly is crucial to both your health and your pet’s. Most pets should come in at least once a year. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.
Make Time To Play
Playing is great for us both physically and mentally. Take time to just have fun this year! Regular play sessions will also benefit your furry buddy. Try to play with your pet daily.
Explore The World
Life goes by quickly, so it’s important to live it to the fullest. Try some new things this year: pick up a new hobby, try new foods, or go somewhere new. If you have a dog, get Fido’s tail wagging by taking him to a dog park or trying out a new trail. As for Fluffy, she’s better off indoors, but she’ll enjoy having boxes, pet tents, and even newspaper tunnels to explore.
Spend Time With Your Loved Ones
In this day and age, it’s very easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Remember to slow down and carve out some quality time with your loved ones… and, of course, your pets!
