It is important to
promote positive lifestyle for your pet.
Cats and dogs are both prone to becoming overweight without exercise and
a healthy diet. Here are a few tips to
help you improve your pet’s fitness and avoid obesity.
- Spend Time Outdoors – Now that the
weather is warm, you can take your pets for a walk or let them play
outside. Running, jumping and chasing are
natural ways to get your dog energized. There
are plenty of outdoor enclosures available that allow cats to run, roam, and
pounce outside too!
- Consistent Exercise – A moderate
level of exercise each day is ideal for a fit and healthy pet. Keep toys handy to keep your dog or cat
energized for a play session, whether indoors or outdoors.
- Portion Control – Feed your pet
using a designated measuring cup. This
is a great way to make sure you know exactly how much food they are consuming
each day. This can keep you from over feeding
your pet, especially as your pet ages.
