Fabulous New Year’s Resolutions for You AND Your Pets!
Party Marty here! The fabulous cat that is back on the scene after festively ushering in the New Year! I have been resting for the past day or so, however! The holidays really wore me out! Nevertheless, I am not too tired to avoid making my New Year’s Resolution list! Yes! Pets need them, too! So, while you are contemplating losing weight, spending less money, and meeting whatever new goals you have set for yourself in the coming year, ponder these amazing pet New Year’s Resolution ideas, courtesy of petmd.com!
Of course, please note that some of these apply to you and that your pet will require your assistance to meet these rather lofty goals!
**Make it a habit to measure your pet’s food with each meal to avoid over-feeding him. No one wants to get a muffin top in the new year!
**Be sure to choose an age-appropriate diet for your pet.
**Try a new activity with your dog, such as doga, hiking, or even kayaking. It is easier and easier now to incorporate your pet into your activities. It is a great way to bond, too!
**Incorporate more playtime into your cat’s routine, too, such as using lasers, catnip toys and climbable cat trees – for the cat…not you!)
**Make an appointment with your veterinarian. Stay on top of health issues and nip any problems in the bud.
**Groom your pet daily. You brush your hair daily…doesn’t your pet deserve the same?
**Practice good oral hygiene on your pet. Find cat and dog appropriate dental supplies to clean their teeth. Ask your vet about this at the aforementioned appointment I suggested you make!
**Update your pet’s identification information. Make sure it is accurate and complete!
Thanks for hanging in there with us in 2014…and here’s to another amazing year on the blog for 2015!!!
