You love your dog, and so you obviously want your furry little friend to stay healthy for as long as possible. But what can you do to help? It can be difficult to know what you can do and what’s the best advice for your dog. But with certain food and daily excersise you can help your dog stay healthy and active. Below we have listed three of the easiest ways to improve your dog’s health. Mentally and physically. So that your little furry friend will not only be the healthiest, but also the happiest dog in the neighbourhood.
Yes, toys are extremely important for dogs to unwind and play. But besides the fun, toys also offer certain other benefits. For example, it helps them ease negative feelings and emotions. When dogs get bored or anxious, they have a tendency to set their teeth into something. And to avoid that their teeth are going to end up in your couch or shoes, it is good to have a few chewing toys available. And besides that, toys give your dog the oppertunity for physical excercise inbetween the walks and playtimes that you will spend together.
Going on a walk
We said ‘inbetween the walks’ because of course the most important thing is to take daily walks. Excercise is beneficial not only to a dog’s physical health but also to their mental health. It offers mental stimulations, chances to socialise with other dogs and the oppertunity for behavioural training outdoors. Walking for thirty minutes a day can stimulate your dog’s mind and body immensely, and make sure your dog is happier at home. And, besides all of that, a good daily walk also has many benefits for us humans.
Dog food and treats
Just as with us humans, the food a dog eats is extremely important to it’s health. But there are so many different dog foods available, that it can be difficult to find the best one. Obviously your dog will let you know what he likes and what he doesn’t, but there are a few things to consider. For one, you could take a look at the benefits the food offers. There are vitamins and ingrediënts that can support the brain, the functioning of the joints or improve the blood sugar levels. It is also important to take note of any diëtary restrictions your dog might have. For extra help, you should never hesitate to ask for advice from the employees of Vetsend.
