Useful Guidelines From A Dog Owner For Keeping Your Pet Healthy

I think that every good dog owner cares as much about their pet as they do about themselves. I usually have a checklist of things that I recommend to other dog owners for the best care for the canine friends. It’s always best consult a vet though because maintaining our own health can be a daunting task, and our dogs have different anatomies and needs than we do. There are critical things to keep in mind that both a vet and I would recommend.

Making sure your dog has healthy environment is critical to its health. It will add to your dog’s welfare and its long-term health which can help add years to its life, and it will add years to your happiness as well. Vet nutritionists in Columbus, Ohio at the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center stress that an enriched environment is one of the most important factors in our dog’s happiness and longevity. Professionals everywhere agree that our dogs need positive mental stimulation to remain physically healthy and happy. Taking your dogs on walks, and providing your furry friend with fun, toys and bones is a great way to keep your dog happy. Affection and time set aside daily to play with your dog is highly recommended. This helps to keep your dog’s boredom at a minimum level, and it also helps to keep their muscles toned and fit. Playing with your dog and giving affection also helps to strengthen the bond between you and your canine.

Make sure you get your dog to his or her yearly or twice a year check ups with your vet too. Your vet can give you invaluable advice on a number of things for your dog such as weight management, the best kind of food from Beneful and things like parasite control and vaccinations. Your dogs weight and nutrition must remain healthy whether or not you have a puppy or a dog that’s seeing more advanced years. Starting a healthy diet and maintaining good weight and exercise for a puppy can ensure extra years at the end of your its life, and making sure your older friend is at the right weight and getting the right nutrition will help keep your dog’s weight down, and that will help keep painful arthritis at bay as well as killers such as diabetes.

Most vets will tell you that a dog food that is high in animal protein with a balance of other essentials is what you need to be feeding your dog. A good dog food with a solid animal protein conent will keep your dog strong, and your pet will also appear more healthy as well.

Purina is a leader in dog food and nutrition and the Beneful product is one of their best and most recommended products in years. I know I recommend it, and vets recommend it too.
