3 Things You Can Do To Care for Your Dog’s Health

Hey Neighbors!!

Dog ownership is a great joy; they bring laughter, love, and comfort. Over time they become a part of the family, and like a family member, you want to ensure they are well taken care of. There are some routine things to do to make sure you keep your dog in good health, which is your responsibility as a pet owner.

Get Your Dog Groomed Regularly

Dog grooming is important for your dog’s health. Regular dog grooming Simi Valley keeps your dog’s fur and skin healthy by preventing matted fur and keeping them clean. Groomers may also see things missed by owners, such as spotting and removing ticks as they groom your dog, which can prevent or detect potential health issues. Regular nail trimming is important to prevent pain as your dog walks, and many groomers also clean out their ears, which can reduce the chances of ear infection. As you can see, even if your dog doesn’t require a fur cut, bringing them in for other services is beneficial.

Establish Vet Care and Bring Them in Regularly

Before an issue arises in your pet, it’s a good idea to establish vet care. Bring them in for an initial check-up so your vet can get a baseline for your pet’s health, and bring them any medical records from previous vet providers. Regular check-ups are a good preventative care measure and can detect health issues early on. Typically, if health issues are caught early on, they are easier to treat.

Take Care of Their Mental Health

Dogs experience a range of emotions including sadness, boredom, and grief. It’s important to care for your dog’s mental health by giving them regular exercise, mental stimulation, and space. Be sure to note any changes in your dog’s behavior and talk to your vet about it, and about possible ways to help your dog through bouts of boredom or sadness.
Dogs bring joy and love into the home and take care of their owners in many ways. It’s loving to return the favor by taking care of them too.
