The Ultimate Cheat Sheet Keeping Your Pet Fit This Winter!
October 7 is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day! Exercise is just as important to pets as it is to their human companions, and as such, let’s take a look at a few unique ways you can work out with your pet today!
- Keeping your pet fit comes down to the same factors that help humans lose weight, too – eating healthier and exercising more. Be careful how much you feed your pet and pay attention to the instructions if you use commercially prepared pet food. If you don’t know how much to feed your pet, don’t be afraid to ask.
- Go easy on the treats. Even if they’re small, they can pack on a lot of calories. Instead, you might want to consider giving your pets fruit or vegetables for treats, but only if appropriate. Like we said, if you have questions, ask your vet!
- Walks for at least 15 to 20 minutes help elevate pet heart rates, which improves metabolism, so go out for a stroll!
- For kitty owners, you can join in on the fun, too! For example, you can do sit-ups while holding laser pointers to give your kitty something to chase while you work out!You and your pet can keep fit together, making for happier, healthier and longer lives!
