Top 5 Ways to Give Your Dog Their Best Life! (*HINT: Pay Special Attention to #5!)

2019-02-06

Consider all the joy and love your dog brings into your life. Now, imagine if you could take measures to help your dog live longer with a better quality of life. Wouldn’t you want to return the happiness your dog provides you for years to come?

Fortunately, with proper care over your dog’s lifetime, she can live happier, healthier, and statistically longer.

1. Your Dog’s Diet Matters

Whether you have a chow-hound or a finicky furry friend, diet is one of the most important aspects of care when it comes to your dog’s health.

Dogs are not strict carnivores, which means that they need a diet of meat with some fruits, vegetables, and healthy grains. A balanced diet of meat along with fruits and vegetables provides your dog with Omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. You want to provide your dog with food that reflects their dietary needs.

So, don’t skimp on your dog’s diet. Make sure you check the ingredients on your dog’s food and check with us to make sure it’s a good option for your pup. We’re always happy to answer questions about your dog’s diet.

2. Exercise is Essential

Chubby dogs are darling, and dog obesity is on the rise. And the frightening reality is that obesity shortens a dog’s lifespan. Unfortunately, obese dogs also have a higher risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, in addition to bladder issues, and osteoarthritis.

Luckily, there’s a solution for canine obesity. In addition to eating well, your dog should receive plenty of exercise that raises her heart rate and burns calories.

Get your canine couch potato up and moving. Embrace playing fetch, going to the dog park, or walking your dog around the block.

3. Mind Your Dog’s Mental Health

We often get questions from owners about their dog’s mopey or lethargic disposition. Often, people don’t realize dogs can develop depression. They also have a tendency to get bored.

If you notice your dog isn’t as spunky as she used to be, pick up some new toys that are more mentally engaging. We’ve found that a lot of dogs love new puzzle toys! Another trick is mentally engaging your pooch with training.

With a few fun toys and activities, you’ll notice your dog feeling reinvigorated.

4. Stop By Our Office

If you first brought your dog home as a pup, you probably visited our office more often than you thought possible.

Your adult dog also needs the care and attention we provide. It’s important to let us check your dog’s overall health, and prescribe her with medicine to prevent heartworms, fleas, and ticks. And we can protect her from rabies, Bordetella, and other diseases, too.

As your dog grays around the muzzle, she’ll need to visit us a little more frequently.  Senior dogs should stop by twice per year for a checkup.

5. Don’t Forget Your Doggy’s Dental Care

Say Cheese! Did your dog smile? If her teeth or breath made you cringe, it’s probably time for cleaning.

Oral issues and dental disease can cause your pup pain. This makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. This can lower your dog’s quality of life and have long-lasting negative psychological effects.

In addition to brushing your dog’s teeth at home, bring her in for regular cleanings. We will provide your pup with a professional cleaning and an exam. Your dog will leave here saying “Bone-Voyage” to dental pain.

Keep your dog’s tail wagging as long as possible! With a quality diet, exercise, dental care, mental stimulation, and regular visits to our office, your best friend will continue to keep you company for years to come.

~What Our Clients Say~

  • The entire staff is great. I am so happy with the decision to switch vets. Going to the vet has become a much better experience! Thrilled to have found a staff that knows how important my pet is to me, instead of pinning her down to get their job done quickly, they get down on the ground to her level and make her as comfortable as possible. Thank you for the amazing experience. Will not be switching vets again.

  • Not a day goes by that I'm not grateful for the excellent care Dr. O and the Kewaskum Vet staff gave to my beloved basset, Coach. A truly awesome group of people that understood a 'basset is an asset'!
