Health Resolutions for Dogs & Cats

Ringing in a Healthy 2019 at Only Natural Pet!
Happy 2019! We hope your holidays were festive and healthy, and full of cuddles and play time with your furry best friend.
It’s time to look forward to the year ahead. What adventures will you have? Planning to learn a new skill? How about health and nutrition goals? Whatever you’ve got planned, we know that your companion would love to be a part of your adventure. Why not start the year with a few nutrition and activity goals you can share?
Start with some immediate post-holiday goals. Chances are, you aren’t the only one who overindulged over the past few weeks. Your furry companion could likely use some digestive help, just like you. Our Complete Gut Health is great for cats and dogs and supports normal healthy digestion and features prebiotics and probiotics.
Maybe you need a more thorough resetting of your diet, so use the opportunity of the New Year to commit yourself to improving your overall health. That same commitment works for your dog or cat, too. Just like you know you should cut out the junk food and eat more fruits and veggies, you know that your dog will thrive with a diet consisting of more meat and nutrient rich fruits and veggies, or your cat will thrive on raw cat food which is high in protein, digestive enzymes, amino acids and essential fatty acids.
Once your nutrition goals are set, it’s time to get off the couch and get moving. We know – it’s at the top of everyone’s New Year’s list. But isn’t it more appealing to exercise with your dog, rather than in a gym? Commit to upping your daily walk game – but don’t limit yourself to just walking. Throw in some intervals (walk or run faster for short periods), some games of catch with your dog, or even a set of push-ups. It’s good for you, it breaks up the monotony of the walk and your dog will love time spent with you. And for cats, it’s hard to beat an interactive cat toy!
Lastly, it’s a New Year, so don’t forget to take a moment to be thankful for the beautiful and loving pets who enrich your life every day.
