Worrying won’t help you take care of your dog; following few health tips will!
Having a pet in your life means a life- long commitment. It is a demanding job and stressful too. You have your pet now and you try to keep it healthy, you give all the love that you have and feed him well but there’s always something more that you can do. Not to stress out or be afraid that you are not doing things right, just follow these simple steps for keeping your pet healthy forever:
1. Give Your Pet Optimized, Nutritious and Balanced Diet
By doing this you are providing your pet with all the vitamins and minerals that it needs, if some are not sufficient there are supplements that after consulting a vet can be given to the pet.
2. Hydration Is Very Important!
Make sure that your pet has 24/7 access to clean, fresh water so it will stay hydrated, if you notice any dehydration signs such as: dry mouth or panting, use Pedialyte – it is a solution that once mixed with water returns all the electrolytes needed in your pet’s system.
3. Keep Your Pet Healthy with Regular Exercises
Nothing is more cheerful that looking at a running dog in the park, keeping him fit and satisfied. However, you must always bear in mind not to force it too much if the weather is too hot or if you get caught in a sunny day use the shades of the trees. Each pet parent must know the physical limitations of his/her buddy.
4. Don’t Miss a Yearly Stop to the Vet!
If you are a home remedy kind of person – which is good- try to not miss at least one stop a year to the vet’s. Your veterinarian will help you make a yearly plan for the vaccines and even detect diseases earlier. Consult your vet for the best remedy against fleas, worms and parasites and make sure you have it handy. Don’t forget to spay or neuter your pet.
