(Family Features)—Pet parents want the best for their dogs and will go to great lengths to keep their furry friends healthy. Here are three useful tips from the IAMS and WHISTLE brands to help your dog maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Schedule Regular Veterinarian Visits
Routine examinations with your veterinarian are vital for maintaining a dog’s healthy lifestyle. An expert can assess overall health and address potential problems by bringing your pup in for a check-up. Make sure to consult with your veterinarian on the recommended frequency of visits and put your next appointment on the calendar.
Keep Pets Active Physically and Mentally
Exercise is crucial for dogs to maintain healthy body weight and is also a good way of achieving mental stimulation. According to the WALTHAM pocket book of responsible pet ownership, 20 minutes of exercise a day is the minimum beneficial period with 30-60 minutes preferable. Try varying your walking routes to increase the degree of mental stimulation for your pets.
Identify Potential Health Concerns Using Pet Health Technology
