Pet Health and Wellness Goals for 2023

Exercise, diet, and healthy habits contribute to not only your health, but also to the health and happiness of your pet. This year, take time to add pet-positive New Year’s resolutions to your list of goals. Here are a few ways to get started! 

Feed Them Nutritious and Delicious Foods 

The food your pet eats is directly linked to their health and well-being. This year, choose food that is nutrient-rich and packed with the good stuff your pet needs to build, maintain, and repair muscles, teeth, and bones. Protein is the key to a long, happy life, but it is also important to ensure you are measuring your pet’s food. Guessing their food measurements may result in unwanted weight gain and harmful conditions that diminish your pet’s quality of life! 

Be Proactive, not Reactive

When we consider our pet’s health, it is imperative to be proactive, not reactive. This means that instead of waiting until your pet is visibly unwell, you should schedule regular veterinary appointments and stay up to date on their health. Ensuring your pet sees their trusted veterinarian helps combat illness and keeps your pet’s immunizations current! Preventative care at home should also be incorporated into your 2023 daily routines. Choosing the right food, supplements, and flea and tick treatments can go a long way in promoting a healthy life for your animal. 

Leave Laziness in 2022

It’s a new year and a new opportunity to get active with your pet. Exercise helps maintain your pet’s healthy weight while fighting off dangerous conditions such as heart disease. For dogs, increased walks, or fun activities such as hiking, swimming, or running at the dog park are excellent ways to get moving and strengthen your bond. Cats are a little pickier; some cats enjoy a walk, but for the ones that do not, incorporating more playtime is an ideal way to keep them fit! 

Start 2023 off right by contacting your trusted veterinarian to schedule a health check-up for your furry companion today!
