Pet Health 101: 3 Tips for Keeping Your Pet Happy & Healthy, Ewa, Hawaii

The team of professional pet health experts at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI, know that many pet owners will do everything they can to make sure that their furry friends live long, happy lives. While part of that comes from addressing any health issues as they arise, there are also preventative measures you can take to promote your pet’s well-being.

Below, the Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital staff shares three tips for keeping your pet in the best health possible:

  • Maintain A Healthy Weight: The best kind of animal care you can provide for your pet is helping him or her maintain a healthy weight. It’s easy to overload your dog or cat with too many treats, but you should avoid doing so to keep weight down. This will avoid added stress on joints, as well as other weight-related health issues. Make sure your pet has a healthy diet with all of the nutrients it needs and provide plenty of opportunities for exercise.

  • Maintain Regular Check-Ups: Taking your pet to the veterinarian for yearly appointments is important. Not only does it keep your pet vaccinated against potentially deadly diseases, but it also gives your vet the opportunity to check for any warning signs of pet health problems so that they can be addressed early.
  • Keep Your Pet Parasite-Free: Fleas can be a nuisance, but ticks and heartworm can make your pet extremely ill. Every well-rounded pet health regimen should include preventative measures against parasites.

The knowledgeable Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital team can recommend the best forms of preventative pet medicine to prevent against heartworm, fleas, and ticks for year-round protection.
