Every New Year, we set resolutions. We resolve to lose weight, get fitter, and reduce stress.
What about our pets? It is important to evaluate the health and well-being of our pets to make sure they live the best life possible. Here are some ideas for how to review and renew your pet’s diet and health in 2019.

Be sure to check the amount of food your cat consumes, especially if they’re overweight. The recommended daily intake should be indicated on the food packaging.
You can switch to a special diet if they are overweight.
Reward them with healthy, natural treats.
Playing with toys and playing with them can encourage them to get more exercise. Use a laser toy to stimulate their hunter instinct.
To prevent hairballs and dirt, keep them clean. Johnson’s Hairball Treatment is a great option if your cat is having trouble with hairballs.
Check that your cat is up-to-date with all vaccinations, especially if they are frequently out of the house and you are not able to control what they are exposed too.

Take care of your pet
There are many breeds that have different needs so ask your vet.
Changes in food should not be made abruptly as they can cause digestive problems. You can make gradual changes to your dog’s diet and watch their reactions.
To test if grain-free dog food improves digestion, you can try it. Eliminating wheat from dog food can help reduce stomach upsets and bloating. This will give your dog more energy.
You should ensure that your dog has a balanced diet and exercise. For example, an elderly dog may be able eat a lot but not be able to lose weight.
You must maintain the change once you have made it. It is tempting for your dog to lose weight, but it will only make things worse.
Being overweight can increase the risk of developing arthritis, heart disease and cancer in dogs. So, eat calorie-controlled food made with natural ingredients.
Running and retrieval games can be great exercise for dogs. They will also burn excess energy some breeds have.
Make sure to brush their fur as well as their teeth. For your dog to be able to chew their food properly, healthy teeth and gums is essential. A 3 Sided Toothbrush from Arm and Hammer will suffice.
Interactive toys and brain teaser games are great ways to keep dogs’ minds stimulated. This will help them stay active and functional as they age.

Remember to take care of your smaller pets!
Small animals like rabbits or guinea-pigs can forage through a muesli food to find sugary bits. So, try pellet food instead.
To keep them busy, use toys such as mazes and wheels to help find their food. This will stimulate both the mind and the body.
To prevent any illness from happening, keep hutches and cages clean. Beaphar Deep Clean Detergent is recommended to ensure a clean environment.
Do not ignore signs of illness. Consult a doctor immediately if you notice any symptoms such as wheezing, sneezing, or loss of balance.
Consult your vet if your animal’s behavior changes dramatically, such as becoming more aggressive, or exhausting quickly.
You can make small changes to ensure your pet lives a happy, healthy and long life. You may have to adjust the exercise and food you give to your pet’s age. You don’t have to give them fattening treats. Sometimes they just want to play with you or go for extra walks. You should also ensure your pet’s flea and worm treatments are current. This will prevent any discomfort or illness.
The Best Christmas Gifts For Your Cats and Dogs
Because dogs and cats are part of the family, it is only natural that we include them in Christmas Day celebrations.
Pets love to be involved in family activities, such as helping to unwrap gifts and gathering around the Christmas tree. Why not give them their own gifts they can enjoy or eat?
