Who doesn’t want to stay healthy? It’s not only humans, but also your dog who wish to be healthy and happy. As you age, similarly your pooch also ages and needs to be taken care of. Many pet parents are unknowingly pushing their pets towards a very detrimental lifestyle. To protect and shield your dog, make sure you don’t do the mistakes mentioned below.
Not enough exercise
Not taking your dog for walks, or not devoting enough time in training physically might turn him dull and physically ill. Dogs are intelligent and their mind needs to get trained too. Hence, after the initial age, you should continue training. In fact, during middle age your needs exercise the most. This will protect him from arthritis. Older dogs have a medical condition called dementia. It happens normally because of not being active physically and just lazing around. Dogs that are active till the middle age have active minds in the old age.
Would you not brush your teeth for days and feel good about it? No, right? Same goes with your dog too. He can’t brush his teeth on his own; hence it becomes your duty to brush his teeth more often. Every vet recommends daily brushing of your dog’s teeth. If this is delayed the tooth infection will spread to other vital organs of his body. If we look at the statistics, about 85% of dogs of have some kind of gum disease. Brushing your dog’s teeth isn’t rocket science. All you have to do is to put a little dog toothpaste on his brush and like a baby brush his teeth. You’ll get dog’s toothpaste at a vet near you.
This is one of the biggest mistakes that a pet parent does. You should never-ever over feed your dog. Most of dog owners feed their dogs more than what they should eat. This further leads to various body issues, such as breaking of joints and connective tissues, dysplasia and more. Another common disease that is seen in dogs is diabetes. For that reason, make a visit to a vet and follow the diet chart that veterinarian suggests for your dog.
