Pet Care - Veterinary Tips

Save Up To 50% At PetCareRx

Many pets are above their ideal weight and the majority of research shows that being overweight can shorten the lives of your precious pets.

The causes of weight gain can be overfeeding, feeding too many table scraps and treats, lack of exercise, and age (older, less active pets are prone to weight gain).

Weight loss will improve your pet’s appearance and health as well as his enjoyment and length of life:

• Feed a low-calorie high-fiber food formulated for weight reduction.
• Divide the total amount of food to be fed each day into 3 or 4 smaller meals.
• Exercise your pet regularly if recommended by your veterinarian.

*** Always check with your Veterinarian about feeding and weight control for your pet.

Walking Etiquette

I thought that as the nicer weather approaches it might be a good idea to talk about general walking etiquette practices. Many people enjoy walking but many people do not display common sense when walking.

If you are walking down the sidewalk and you are slow it would be polite and a good idea to walk close to the buildings or inside and let faster walkers pass on the outside. Just like driving.

When you are part of a big group of people walking shoulder to shoulder and are approaching people coming the other way, please break up into smaller groups or there will be a collision.

For all the couples out there that are so self absorbed and walk in the middle of the sidewalk, please shift to your right and share the sidewalk with that other couple coming you direction. I am sure they will shift to the right also and you both can go on your merry way. Great no collision in the middle!
