See how 2020 can Transform Your Pet’s Overall Health and Happiness – with Your Help!
New Years isn’t just for people – there are always improvements in your pet’s life that can be made so they can continue every day happier and healthier than ever. Every year, pet owners are doing their best to ensure that their furry friend lives the best life possible, which is why we’re here to help! Dive in with our Martinsville veterinarian to see what kind of New Year’s resolutions can be made for your cat or dog and how these improvements can transform the way your pet feels!
Common Resolutions for Pet Owners
There are numerous ways to improve your pet’s quality of life. These resolutions can be done one step at a time or combined throughout the year. Either way, your pet’s overall health will be thankful!
• More exercising
• A new activity together
• Losing weight
• A change in dietary needs
• Hygiene improvement
• More playtime
Why People Choose Resolutions for Pets
While veterinarians encourage changes in a pet, like more exercise or switching their daily diet, pet owners become encouraged to do the same, which becomes a win-win situation for all involved! If you’re finding that your dog needs to go on some extra walks, you’ll be going on those walks with them. If you’ve noticed your cat gaining a few extra pounds, their new dietary food becomes inspirational for your own dietary needs.
Why the Holidays are Difficult
Everyone is having a difficult time trying to stay healthy and eat right during this time of the year. It’s an enjoyable time, where families and friends all gather to eat, drink, and be merry. Sometimes, your pet is involved too! Parents, kids, and friends alike can easily sneak your pet a little extra food without you even realizing it until it’s too late, which can undo a lot of training and diets that pets are restricted with. It’s extremely common for pets to be overfed during the holidays, whether intentionally or unintentionally, and by the time everything is said and done, everyone’s feeling a little bit heavier and slower.
We encourage the best health and safety for pets and pet owners alike! Don’t hesitate to ask our Martinsville veterinarian about ways to improve your furry friend’s overall wellbeing for 2020. Give our office a call today at (276) 656-0442 and we’ll be happy to help!
