Along with top-notch diet, you should also give your pet with a plenty of exercise. It is necessary to avoid obesity and other health related issues.
  • Dental Health
    Dental examination of your pets on a periodic basis is essential. Make sure you brush her/his teeth often using a canine-friendly toothpaste. If the pet doesn’t like brushing the teeth, try cleaning her teeth with a bit of gauze wrapped around your finger. It is essential to prevent harmful dental diseases.

    By brushing your pet often, you’ll improve his skin and contribute to better coat health. When you are brushing the pet, run your hands over her coat and skin. In case, you notice some unusual, take the pet to the vet immediately. Make sure you wash the feet of your pet to protect her/him from chemicals from grass, sidewalks, or streets.
