KEEPING YOUR PET HEALTHY AND HAPPY

A pet is more than a loyal companion; they’re an important part of the family and truly make a house feel like a home. 


To ensure your pet’s health and happiness, here are some tips on how to take care of your pet


  1. Nutritious food - Just like people, pets need food that meets their specific nutritional needs. The right pet food will provide them with the energy and nutrients they need. 


  1. Home Care -  Keep a clean and hygienic environment for your pet and make sure they are given antiparasitic medication to prevent parasites such as fleas, mites, ticks, and worms. Your pet’s lifestyle will also influence the type and regularity of the antiparasitic treatment required.

 

  1. Identifying health issues: There are common areas of concern that you may encounter: i) Skin problems, it’s important to look out for unrelenting scratching and unusual biting of the paws and the rear, ii) Joints and bones, if your pet struggles to get up from a lying position, stops running around, and looks stiff, these are general indicators that they could be in some form of discomfort, iii) Gastrointestinal issues, such as changes in behaviour like them not eating or wanting to play – especially with puppies since they always want to play and eat.

 

  1. Vet visits - Pets require doctor visits and healthy habits. Making sure you adhere to your pet’s regularly scheduled wellness can help detect diseases and other conditions that could put your pet’s health at risk if left untreated.  


  1. Vaccination - Keeping up with your pet’s vaccinations  is essential. Vaccinations prevent many pet illnesses.


  1. Exercising - One of the most important aspects of responsible pet care is ensuring your pet gets enough exercises, and proper socialising is a part of that.
