Vet-Approved New Year’s Resolutions for Your Canine Companion
With 2021 quickly coming to an end, your thoughts may have turned to making New Year’s resolutions. Instead of setting yourself up with failure by making the same resolutions you fail to stick to every year, why not use the New Year as an opportunity to vow to be a better pet parent? Here at PetNest Animal Hospital, we are all about helping pet owners care for their companions. That’s why we’ve decided to share a few vet-approved resolutions for your canine companion. Let’s dive in!
Drop Some Weight
Obesity is an epidemic among pets in the US. In fact, roughly half of all dogs in America are overweight or obese. The extra pounds may make your dog look cute, but they aren’t healthy. This year, commit to helping your dog lose weight by providing a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.
Learn Something New
Dogs of all ages love learning new things. Some are faster learners than others, but they all enjoy expanding their knowledge and skillset. Teach your canine companion a new trick or skill in 2022 to satisfy their desire to learn.
Commit to Exercising 5 Days a Week
Both you and your dog need regular physical activity. If you have trouble sticking to your own exercise goals, consider setting goals for your dog instead. You may find it easier to go out and exercise if you’re doing it for your canine companion rather than just doing it for yourself. Commit to working out five times per week. Any type of exercise works!
Resolve to make 2022 your dog’s best year ever. In addition to setting (and sticking to) the resolutions above, be sure to keep up with their routine care needs. If your dog needs a veterinarian in Frisco, we’d love to help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
