5 Important New Year’s Resolutions for Pet Health, Ewa, Hawaii

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to set goals – not only for yourself but your pets as well! If you’re looking for ways to get Fido in on the festivities, the following pet health resolutions from Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI, will help get you moving in the right direction.

5 Pet Health Resolutions for the New Year

1. Adjust the Diet

If it’s been a while since you’ve switched up your pet’s diet, now’s a great time to consider a change. Pets require different nutrients to maintain strength and agility as they age. If your 5-year-old is still chowing on puppy food, upgrading to a more age-appropriate option will help keep him in optimum health moving forward.

2. Update the Tags

If you’ve recently moved or made a change to your cell phone number, updating your pets’ ID tags and microchips is a must. This will ensure that your furry friend is found and returned to you if they happen to wander off.

3. Daily Exercise

veterinarianDaily exercise is beneficial to pets and owners alike. Toss the ball around the backyard, break out the laser pointer, or treat your pooch to a long walk around the neighborhood. The more active your pet is, the healthier and happier they will be.

4. Start an Emergency Fund

An unexpected visit to the veterinary hospital can really put a dent in your finances. Putting some extra cash aside throughout the year will ensure that your pet receives the best possible care while saving you from an extravagant credit card bill down the road. 

5. Visit the Vet

Yearly veterinarian visits are vital to pet health. Although your pet may look and act fine, an annual checkup can uncover issues that might go unnoticed otherwise. Your veterinarian can also offer valuable advice to help you care for your pet as they mature while fielding any questions or concerns you may have regarding their health.
