If you could help your dog to live a long and fruitful life would you do it.? The answer for most pet owners is "of course". Well, the great news for you is that you can. Helping your dog live a long and quality life isn't rocket science, it’s actually quite simple. Read on to learn the simple steps you can take.
Choose high-quality food
Not all dog foods are created equal and your dog deserves the best. Visit your vet to get a recommendation for the best quality food for your dog's specific dietary needs. You may pay more for your dog's food but health is wealth. Feeding your dog high-quality food now can help you save money in the future on the vet bill as your dog ages.
Obesity is the gateway to illness in dogs. A lean dog is more likely to live a long and quality life. Be sure to not underfeed your dog in a fear of making him obese. Your vet can help to recommend the correct portion size and frequency of meals for your pup.
Visit the Vet regularly
When it comes to vetting visits is best to stay on track. Missing milestone appointments can compromise your dog's health. Mark your calendar or create a reminder on your phone so that you can always attend your vet appointments. Your pup will be very grateful.
Make Dental Health a priority
Healthy teeth and gums can help your dog live longer. If you notice tooth decay, bad breath, or tooth loss speak to your vet about options for improving your dog's dental health. The sooner you act the better when it comes to oral health.
Monitor his outdoor time
Outdoor time is your dog's chance to run free and wild, but it's your job to ensure he isn't hurt. Always assess areas that your dog plays in and ensure they are safe and free from sharp objects or dangerous hazards. This will help playtime be carefree and fun.
