Resolutions for Pet Parents

Happy New Year! If you’re a pet parent, your furry pal will be right by your side as you start out the new year. Why not include your four-legged pal in your goals for 2018? Read on as a local Greensboro, NC vet lists some great resolutions for pet parents.

Offer Great Nutrition

Making sure your animal companion is getting proper nutrition is very important. Offer your furry buddy good, nourishing food. Snacks are fine—and are a great way to brighten a pet’s day—but don’t go overboard with fatty treats. You don’t want your pet becoming obese!

Make Time To Play

Our furry companions are super cute when they are being playful. Spend at least a few minutes a day tossing a ball for Fido, or dangling a wand toy for Fluffy to pounce on. This will be fun for both of you!

Take Pictures

We probably don’t have to tell you that pets are super photogenic. Remember to get some great shots of your four-legged pal this year!

Spend Quality Time Together

Life moves pretty quickly. The time we have with our beloved animal companions often passes in a flash. Spend some quality time with your furry best friend every day. Pet them, play with them, talk to them, and offer lots of ear scritches and belly rubs.

Keep Up With Veterinary Care

While coming to see us may not exactly be your pet’s favorite thing ever, proper veterinary care is very important. Most of our four-legged patients should come in at least once a year, though some need more frequent visits. Ask your vet for recommendations. In between appointments, watch for signs of illness. Contact your vet immediately if you notice anything amiss.

Cuddle!

Did you know that snuggling up with your furry friend is actually good for you? Hugging your pet can help you fight anxiety, reduce stress, and relax after a bad day.

Put Safety First

Never underestimate your pet’s ability to get into trouble. Always put your four-legged friend’s safety first and foremost. With cats, this means careful kittyproofing and keeping Fluffy indoors, to start. Dogs need to be kept in safe, secure environments. Fido may also need to complete his training. Ask your vet for specific advice.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, your local Greensboro, NC pet clinic, for all of your pet’s veterinary care needs.
