Keeping Your Dog Healthy: Brush Regularly
Don’t just brush when you notice that they need it. Keep your dog healthy with regular brushing, which will get your pet used to the action so they’re not scared, fussy or uncomfortable when you do it — and of course, take out the dead fur.
How To Have a Healthy Dog: Provide a Balanced Diet
Each pet has its own dietary needs, so make sure you cater to his or her specific situation and provide a good balance of protein in order to keep them healthy.
Also be sure to supplement with fish oils. Veterinarians first used omega-3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil to treat canine and feline allergies, but now recommend it for a wide variety of conditions ranging from kidney disease to arthritis and high cholesterol. Adding fish oil to your pet’s food provides anti-inflammatory effects and can help relieve itching and scratching and allergy related skin conditions.
How to Have a Healthy Dog: Brush their Teeth Regularly
Regular brushing can help prevent dental disease (which can be difficult to detect) and keep your pup healthy. But make sure you brush with a toothpaste specifically developed for pets. Do not use human toothpaste, because your pet is likely to swallow it, which irritates the stomach.
