Keep Your Pet Healthy
Tips to keep your pet Healthy.
How to monitor and maintain a healthy weight for your pet?
- Healthy weight isn’t simply a number on a scale; it’s about healthy body composition.
- Feed your pet a balanced, nutritious diet.
- Make a diet plan for your pet and stick to it.
- Monitor and record results then make necessary adjustments to the plan.
- Consult with us to build the most effective diet plan for your pet.
Exercise your pet.
- Begin with short, frequent walks, and take frequent rests as needed.
- Train your dog to behave on a leash.
- Remember that walks are also good for your dog to enjoy the environment.
- Build gradually to one or more 15 minutes periods of walking.
- Obey leash laws, and always clean up after your dog.
Feed your pet a balanced, nutritious diet.
- Eliminate table scraps and fattening, high-calorie treats.
- Slow your pet’s food consumption by using a special bowl that makes it harder to gulp down their food.
- The recommended feeding amount printed on the pet food label might not be appropriate for your pet.
- Give your pet a constant supply of fresh water.
Have your pet examined at least once a year.
- Regular wellness exams are recommended for your pet.
- At Nohl Ranch Animal Hospital we give recommendations for a wellness program based on your pet’s breed.
- Limit your pet’s reproduction through spay/neuter.
- Your pet’s teeth should be checked at least once a year.
Vaccinate your pet against potentially deadly diseases.
- “Core” vaccines are recommended for most pets.
- Many vaccinations provide adequate immunity when administered every few years.
Keep your pet free of parasites (fleas and ticks, heartworm).
- Fleas thrive when the weather is warm and humid.
- Female fleas begin laying eggs within 24 hours producing up to 50 eggs each day.
- Fleas bite animals and suck their blood.
- Heartworms can only be transmitted from animal to animal by mosquitoes.
