Tips for Excellent Pet Health


When you mention kale, the majority will look up with raised eyebrows and mumble "What"? "What's that"? An old, hardly spoken of and powerful green food. Kale is a leafy green vegetable with a mild earthy flavor. The season for kale is between mid winter and early spring where it can be found in abundance in most produce sections of the local grocery store. However, one can find kale year round. Thankfully, kale is starting to garner well deserved attention due its nutrient rich phytochemical content which provides unparalleled health promoting benefits.

More Info
									A healthy pet is a happy pet! Just like with humans, pets need healthy
food, mental stimulation, physical exercise, social fun and regular
visits to a medical professional. Follow these tips and keep your pet's
health in top condition so he's with you for many years to come:

1) Provide Them with Healthy, Nutritious Food

Just like humans are recommended to consume a healthy diet, pets are too!
The best decision you can make for your pet's health is the food that you
give them. Try your hardest to provide them with nutritious dog food.
Research their food before you give it to them, which may consist of
checking ingredients or even calling manufacturers. It might seem crazy,
but your pet will thank you when their lives are prolonged by a healthy
diet. Avoid food with by-products, artificial flavors, colors and
preservatives. Limit or completely avoid people food.

2) Help Them Use Their Brain

As animals age, they can begin to have altered cognitive function. The
same happens with humans and can result in dementia and Alzheimer's
disease. It has been proven that "exercising" the brain can delay or
prevent cognitive problems. Try to come up with games you can play with
your pet that will force them to use their brains. It can be as easy as
hiding their toys around the house and having them look for them.

3) Make Sure They Get Plenty of Exercise

As said above, physical activity is extremely important to every pet's
well-being. It keeps them healthy physically and mentally. If your pet
doesn't get enough exercise, he could become overweight leading to a host
of diseases like arthritis and diabetes.

4) Social Interactions

It is known that dogs that are exposed to other dogs have happier lives.
There are some exceptions to this because some dogs simply do not get
along with other canines. But some will be better behaved and more fun if
they are socialized. Having your dog interact with other animals can even
help to improve your own social life! Visiting the dog park is a great
option when considering ways to socialize your dog.

5) Visit the Vet

Yes, visiting the veterinarian may be expensive and a pain. However, it
will prove to be very beneficial for your pet's life. Just because there
isn't an apparent problem with your pet's health doesn't mean you
shouldn't bring them for regular visits to the vet. Pets sometimes have
underlying conditions that do not always cause apparent symptoms that can
be diagnosed, such as fleas or ear infections. The vet can weigh your pet
to determine if it is at a healthy weight. He/she can give you
recommendations for how to improve your pet's health and answer any
questions you may have.
It is known that there are many other ways to improve your pet's health,
but these are just some of the most important to get you started.
Hopefully following these tips and recommendations will prove to be
beneficial for your pet's health and wellbeing.
