The new year 2024 is upon us – a time of renewal and good intentions. While we set our own goals for health and well-being, we must not forget that our faithful four-legged friends can also benefit from positive changes. In this article, we take a look at important aspects that contribute to a healthy and happy life for your dog. From adequate exercise and healthy eating to regular check-ups, we cover everything you should consider for your dog’s well-being in the new year.
Adequate exercise: The key to vitality and well-being
The New Year is the perfect time to make sure your faithful four-legged friend gets enough exercise for a healthy canine life. Regular walks, outdoor play and interactive exercise not only contribute to your dog’s physical health, but also strengthen your bond. Whether it’s a long walk in the park or a lively play session in the garden, exercise will keep your dog fit and happy.
Social contact: Why they’re important for your dog
Dogs are naturally social animals and benefit hugely from interactions with other dogs. In 2024, focus on enabling your dog to meet other dogs on a regular basis. Whether at the dog park or on walks with dog owners from the neighbourhood – these contacts are important for your dog’s social development and emotional well-being.
Healthy diet: away from dry food and towards natural food
A healthy diet is crucial for your dog’s health. In the new year, we recommend moving away from dry food and switching to a natural, balanced diet. Fresh meat, vegetables and healthy fats should form the basis of your dog’s meals. Make sure your dog has a balanced diet that provides all the necessary nutrients. Strange chunks from the bag in the bowl have nothing to do with a healthy diet!
Chewing materials: for optimum dental health
Your dog’s dental health should not be underestimated. Chewing materials such as raw meat bones, bullwhips, coffee tree wood or rabbit ears with fur can help to keep teeth clean and gums healthy. These not only provide a great activity, but also support dental care.
Regular check-ups: A must for a healthy dog’s life
Regular health check-ups are essential. Schedule annual check-ups at the vet to make sure your dog is in good health. Early detection of health problems can be crucial for successful treatment.
Optimal support for older dogs
To help older dogs live a healthy life, we recommend our combination set of DOG FIT by PreThis® CARE senior and VITAMIN B. CARE senior provides a comprehensive supply of essential nutrients, supports joint health and contributes to vitality. The VITAMIN B complex ideally complements this by strengthening the nervous system and promoting general health. Together, they provide an excellent basis for giving your older dog a vital and healthy new year.
