Diet and exercise are the foundation of your pet’s health. Find out what you should be feeding your pet and how active they should be for optimal health.
Diet and exercise
A healthy diet is as important for pets as it is for people. The right diet can protect against preventable health issues and give your pet energy for all their adventures. Learn what to feed your pet to keep them in top shape and avoid costly vet bills.
Toxic to pets
Those little paws and claws get into everything. Learn about items in your pet’s environment that could be toxic so you can create a safe home for your mischievous little buddy.
If your pet is overweight and unfit it will impact their health. A combination of a healthy diet, appropriate exercise and a weight loss plan can get your pet back on track. Talk to your vet before making significant changes to your pet’s diet and exercise routine. RSPCA Victoria has a weight loss clinic that can help get your pet back to a healthy weight.
Sometimes it isn’t easy to spot if your pet is losing weight under all that fluff. The easiest way to tell is if your pet isn’t eating normally. If you notice a change in your pet’s appetite consult your vet because there could be an underlying health problem..
Maintaining good cardiovascular health and muscle tone is vital for your pet’s health. Strike the right balance so your pet gets the exercise they need, keeping them fit and ready for their next adventure.
Exercise doesn’t just mean a daily walk or a run around the living room. Pets need to be challenged in their environment to build strong bodies capable of anything they set their minds to. They also need their brains to be stimulated with games, tasks and training.
