while many people rely on losing weight and exercising more, many of the decisions we make to improve our health can be applied to our pets! Below are some resolutions for our furry friends. Safety first Ensure your home after the holidays may seem a discouraging task. You can have new equipment, clothing and home accessories that are easily accessible to their pets. Not only do you not want your new things to become chewable items, but you also do not want small objects were swallowed by your pet. The clothing, plastic objects, and even jewelry can become a health risk causing intestinal obstruction. To address this issue, appoint a designated space where their new possessions to be saved and put a baby gate at the entrance to help deter curious pets. As they remove the curiosity, you can bring objects out without much problem. Check your whole house and make sure no dangers to their pets, like ribbons or confetti left after a holiday party.
All safety checks throughout the year must be made within and outside your home. Make sure the outside is as tidy as the inside, and check your driveway for oil spills, nails or tacks, glass, or feces of other animals. Not only does this ensure a healthy environment for your pet, but for you too. Watch your weight A recent study has shown that 50% of American pets are overweight. As humans, a pet needs to be around to enjoy an optimal quality of life and reduce the risk of more serious health problems in the future.
