We all hear a lot about healthy eating, being green, and good exercise habits for our human health… but did you know there’s a day dedicated to reminding us to do the same for our pets?
Well … there is, and today is the day!
As we mentioned earlier this month, approximately 35% of our pets don’t get proper exercise, so one thing you can do to celebrate is to check out our post for ideas on exercising with your pet – and get to it!
• Choosing a natural pet food to reduce your pet’s exposure to artificial ingredients. We have many pet food choices to consider that could help to reduce the symptoms associated with allergies, digestion, obesity, diabetes and many other common pet health-challenges – just ask a Chuck & Don’s team member for help! Any decision on what to feed your pet who has health issues should be made after consultation with your veterinarian.
• Don’t forget the treats! We can imagine your pet saying this every time you go out the door … but we mean specifically considering if the treats you give your pet are equally as natural and nutritious as the food you feed them.
• Get a check-up. It’s a good idea to schedule an annual check-up with your veterinarian to make sure you are catching any potential health issues as they arise.
• Don’t forget to brush! Research shows that by the age of 3, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have gum disease, which can lead to dangerous infections. Brushing your pet’s teeth regularly with pet-approved toothpaste can go a long way to preventing these infections from becoming serious.Tell us – what other ways do you live a “holistic” life – benefitting you and your pets?
