By F word, we’re talking F-I-T. If you live in that part of the world where seasons can take a sharp turn downward, don’t let the colder months take you and your pet by surprise! Get outside, keep fido moving and make fitness part of your regular routine.
Did you know that many of the medical and physical conditions associated with overweight or obese pets mirror those suffered by overweight or obese humans? For fido, even just an extra five pounds can put them at risk for these disorders:
Don’t let chubby puppy creep in – avoid giving your sweet little furry friends rich fatty treats. The ‘diet’ part of the fitness equation includes portion control. Often, pet obesity is a people issue, not a pet issue. Be aware of the quality of food you’re feeding your pet.
Many would agree that both exercise AND diet will keep your little bundle of love fit, trim and healthy.
Keep your pets safe and cool this summer. Things are heating up, and remember that a parked car can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, you’re looking at closer to 120 degrees. Don’t leave your pets inside cars even for just a few minutes, your pet will suffer irreversible organ damage and/or die.
When it comes to exercise, you may want to limit the amount on hot days as well as adjust intensity and duration. Early morning or evening hours are the best times to get out there. Asphalt gets hot and can burn your pet’s paws. Walking on grass is best, if possible, and always remember to carry water with you.
If you’re planning a picnic or play date outdoors with your pet, make sure there are shaded areas with unobstructed air flow – trees and tarps are ideal for this and please make sure your pet is protected from the sun.
Pools are F-U-N but keep pet safety front and centre!
Here are a few things to remember when it comes to pools and your pet:
Not all dogs are good swimmers. Some breeds can even drown if left unsupervised around a pool.
Teach your dog to swim.
Invest in a dog life vest.
Take care with older and senior dogs – they are more likely to suffer from arthritis, vision loss, seizures and a host of other health issues that may require special attention around the pool or prohibit them from swimming altogether.
