Senior pet? Help them live happier and healthier lives in their later years
As our pets get older they are prone to certain health conditions that are linked with age, just like us humans.
During this period of uncertainty and with many of us self-isolating and in lock-down, some of our clients have been asking questions about COVID-19 in relation to their pet and also how to manage their mental and physical wellbeing. We have pulled together this guide which we hope you’ll find useful.
There’s been a significant increase in the amount of information published on the impact coronavirus news is having on people’s anxiety levels and mental health challenges – and, with many of us unable to leave our homes, social isolation is likely to have a further negative impact on our mental health.
With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), knowing how to keep your pet happy, healthy and at an ideal weight in lock-down may help give you peace of mind that you’re doing all you can for their wellbeing too.
There’s no substitute for getting out in the fresh air and walking your dog. Whether you take your dog out around your neighbourhood, walk them to the nearest park, or find a totally new place to explore on foot – walking them everyday will provide them with an all-round workout.
Spotting the signs of diabetes in your pets is crucial as just like us, our pets can suffer from the complex disease, but it isn’t always easily identifiable. You can help your pet by understanding what diabetes is, the causes of it and how to recognise the symptoms.
Welcoming a new arrival into the family is a very exciting time. There are lots of activities, environments and enjoyment yet to experience – your little one will be raring to go! This is why we have prepared some advice to help guide you through those early weeks and months.
