Keeping your Dog fit and Healthy
We have two dogs, my little 10-year old Lhasa Apso who is healthy and fit, and our young 1-year old Beagle. I enjoy and love both my dogs, they each have their individual characters and are very much part of the family.
Lhasa's is a toy breed of dog, albeit a sturdy one, but not a massively active breed. Beagles, on the other hand, are highly active dogs, and they are very much lead by food - they would eat anything and everything if they could get away with it. Beagles are sturdy, strong and less prone to canine disease than many other dog breeds.
There are many things that you can do to keep your dog fit and healthy, and to keep them at their healthiest, it so very important. Below are some tips on how we keep our dogs fit and healthy.
Keep updated in regards to vaccinations: this will help prevent diseases and the spread of disease. Also, flea and worm your dog regularly.
Daily exercise to stay fit and healthy: Whether it is a walk (if they have a good recall, off the lead is best), or some quality time in the back garden playing fetch or another game.
Maintain a healthy weight: To avoid obesity. Obesity can lead to many other health issues in your dog. Proper exercise and a well-balanced diet are key to keeping your dog fit and trim.
Share the love: Dogs love us unconditionally. Just like us humans, dogs are happier when they feel loved and have relationships they can count on
