Five New Year’s Resolutions for Pet Owners

It’s that time of year again to make resolutions for the upcoming season of your life. While it’s advantageous for us to make our own resolutions regarding our health and well-being, it’s also important to consider adding our pet’s needs to the list. Having your pet join you on your resolutions can help keep you on track and ensure that your pet is well taken care of.

Re-evaluate Your Pet’s Diet 

Food is our body’s fuel. The same rings true for our beloved pets. With the new year upon us, now is the perfect time to assess whether your pet’s diet truly meets their dietary needs. It is also a good idea to toss any unhealthy treats you may have and replace them with snacks that promote your pet’s health and happiness. 

Spend More Time Getting Active 

Exercise may be one of your top 2023 goals. Extend this healthy goal to your pet by indulging in more physical activity alongside your companion. Dogs can benefit from simple tweaks to your everyday routine, such as more frequent or extended walks. To include your cat in the action, take time out of your day to play with them. Chasing a laser pointer is an excellent way to stimulate your cat’s natural predatory instincts, and it is a sure way to keep you both entertained!

Enrich Your Pet’s Home Environment 

Home should be a place of optimal comfort and relaxation for you and your pet. This January, consider some new additions around your home that may contribute to the happiness of your pet. A perch for your cat to sunbathe, a cat tree that enables them to scratch and play, or an automatic treat dispenser for your dog are excellent additions that promote happiness for your pet. 

Prioritize Your Pet’s Health 

While a healthy diet and sufficient exercise are great ways to promote a well-balanced life, nothing compares to the professional care of your local veterinarian. Get ahead of your pet’s health needs this year by scheduling your pet’s annual veterinary visit.
