Keeping your dog healthy can be a challenge, and it is good to be prepared and know how you have to deal with certain problems, and how to minimize those same health risks before they begin.
Exercise Can Keep Your Dog Happy and Healthy
Believe it or not, but many veterinarians believe the key to keeping your best friend from contracting many infections is exercise. Exercise is also very important when it comes to helping your pooch battle obesity. When dogs become obese it often leads to both respiratory and cardiovascular problems.
If you start noticing your dog having more of a “square” shape, then it is time to visit a vet and talk with a professional about a safe, and fun exercise plan.
Playing With Your Dog Makes Them Happy
Animals have feelings too, and it is also very important to show them the TLC that they deserve. What is great about playing with your dog is that you are both exercising at the same time, it also has an added benefit, which is bringing both of you closer to one another. Most professionals recommend you play with your dog at least 15 minutes and no longer than 45 minutes per day.
Why it is Important to Vaccinate Your Dog
Many people don’t know this, but dogs can get common infections just as us humans can, and one of the best things you can do for your dog is getting them vaccinated.
The main core vaccinations you should get your dog are for the Canine Parvovirus (CPV), Canine Adenovirus (Rabies), and the Canine Distemper Virus (CDV). Some “non-core”, but extremely helpful vaccines are Canine Influenza Virus (CIV), Bordetella Bronchiseptica (known causation agent of “kennel cough”), Borrelia Burgdorferi (known causation agent of Lyme Disease), and the Canine Parainfluenza Virus, also known as (CPiV).
Many pet owners and veterinarians would agree that it is much better to be safe rather than sorry when it comes to being proactive against some of these diseases, and common infections.
