Resolutions for People With Dogs

January 1, 2021

Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions for 2021? If so, why not include your canine companion in your new goals? Here, a Thorold, ON veterinarian suggests a few things to add to your to-do list!

Finish Fido’s Petucation

Has your furry pal mastered basic doggy obedience commands yet? If not, this is a great time to finish his petucation!

Visit The Doctor

Regular veterinary care is absolutely crucial to your canine buddy’s health and well-being. We recommend that all dogs be microchipped, spayed or neutered, and kept current on exams. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.

Keep Up With Wellness Care

Parasite control and vaccinations are both crucial to your cute pet’s health and well-being. Make sure that Fido is current on preventative care!

Offer Safe Treats

Fido always gets adorably happy at the thought of a yummy snack. Treats are actually very beneficial: they brighten up your pup’s day, make great training aids, and help Fido feel loved. However, it’s important to stick with safe, suitable foods. Ask your vet for more information.

Make Time To Play

Playing with your pooch is also a great way to strengthen the bond between you. Carve out time for playing with Fido daily. This is bound to lift your spirits as well!

Keep Fido’s Toybox Full

Toys are important for dogs for several reasons. They keep Fido entertained, offer him a suitable outlet for any doggy angst he feels, and help him burn off excess energy. Your furry buddy should have some toys that you can play with him interactively with, and others that he can use alone. Rotate and refresh your pup’s playthings regularly. 

Stick To A Grooming Routine

Our canine pals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they all have their own unique hairdos. Some pooches only need occasional baths, while others need monthly beauty sessions. Keep Fido’s fur soft and clean! Nail trims and dental care are important as well.

Keep That Tail Going

Man’s Best Friend is very loyal and loving. Fido really only wants to spend time with you! Pay lots of attention to your furry best friend. Time spent with dogs is always precious.
