New Year: What You Need to Plan For Your Pets

A beneficial and extensive routine is one of the best ways you can ensure that your pet is receiving all the care it needs day to day. And due to the New Year, this is a perfect time to craft one!
So here are some important items to include in your schedule for the new year of 2019!

1. Pet Vaccinations

As always, pet vaccinations should be at the top of your to-do list. This is due to the New Year coming with the possibility that your pet may need booster vaccinations or even new ones entirely.

Therefore, if your pet has a yearly check-up at the vet, it can be prudent to ensure that you ask if there are any recommended vaccinations or boosters your pet may require.

If you don’t have a check-up planned, it can always be a good idea to get one sorted if possible!

We require all dogs to be up-to-date on their vaccinations, especially Rabies and Distemper vaccines. All necessary vaccinations must be administered at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.

2. Pet Exercise Plan

Are you sure your pet is getting enough exercise? Whilst cats usually do a good job of making their own fun if they are provided with enough toys and a big enough area to jump around, dog exercise requires a bit more help from us humans.

With most breeds being much bigger than cats, they need to be outside to fully stretch out their legs. To avoid negative behavior traits or obesity, meeting your breed’s exercise requirements are a must. Long walks and play are a good way of achieving this.

Having a weekly exercise plan can be a great way of keeping track and ensuring that your pet is receiving all the exercise it needs.

3. Pet Diet Plan

Just like with us humans, a good diet for our pets helps keep them healthy and free of potential health conditions.

Being aware of what you are feeding your pet and discussing with your vet what makes a good diet for your particular furry friend are good first steps in ensuring that they are receiving all the nutrients they need. Click here to find out what food you need to keep away from your dog.

4. Pet Grooming Plan

Regular thorough grooming of your pet comes with many benefits, including the prevention of potential severe health issues. Therefore, it is just as important as any other requirements your pet may have!

While keeping their coat looking its best is a significant part of grooming, it is by far not all there is to it. Regular trimming of the nails, dental upkeep, flea and tick treatments, all of these come under the umbrella of grooming and all our important to your pet’s health.

For that reason, we would recommend creating a weekly and monthly grooming schedule to keep on top of everything your pet may need.
