New Year's Resolutions - Part 1
As the New Year begins, many of us start to think about our New Yearâ€™s Resolutions. This month we will talk about some simple, reasonable ways
to make 2014 a better year for our pets.
Improve Their Diets
This is one of the most common resolutions people make, and with good reason. A healthy diet is essential for living a full and active life. Generally speaking, quality pet diets are not sold in grocery stores.
Switch to a diet with limited, quality ingredients and avoid foods containing corn, soy, wheat or by-products. Transition to the new diet gradually, mixing the old and new foods over a period of several days to avoid any gastric upset.
Break the habit of feeding â€œpeople foodâ€, and ditch those calorically dense treats. Treats should only be given as an earned reward, and even then, only in very small morsels.
