many of us set a resolution for ourselves for the new year. Since our pets can
improve our physical and mental health, lets improve the lives of our cats and
dogs this year as well.
Their Tags & Microchips: If your contact information has changed, get
your pet a new tag and update your info that’s attached to their microchip.
Also, make sure the info on their tag is still readable, often it rubs off.
- Bring Out
the Brush: Not only does brushing improve their coats, it helps you
Throw away those dirty, germy, broken toys. Get them something new to play
- Make Time
to Play: Whether it’s swimming, hiking, or learning new tricks; your pet
needs time to play and bond with you because they love you unconditionally.
They’re Food: It’s easy to overfeed a pet who acts like there’s never
enough food in the bowl. Throw a measuring cup in their food containers and use
it every day. Food is often a way we say, “I Love You.” Love your pet with
other things like attention, play dates, or more car rides.
- Take Them
to the Vet: Just like humans, pets should see their veterinarian for an
annual check-up. They need to have their yearly vaccinations to keep them
healthy and happy. Often when pets get sick, there is something going on with
them that we can’t see.
