While Jacob and I have been working on our healthy this month, Spike’s just as much a part of the fun. Last month we showed you some of his favorite SPIKE treats from Petcurean. Petcurean is back this month to share a few ways we can prioritize our pet’s health this year as we’re doing with our own!
- The Humanization of Pet Food: Do you know what’s in your pet’s food? It’s always a good thing to read the ingredients label on your food, so why not make a habit of reading your pet’s food too? Brands like Petcurean pride themselves on finding the best ingredients for your dog or cat. Check out their great guide for reading the ingredients, or use their Food Finder to try out some of their offerings.
- Don’t Forget Oral Health: Many pet owners don’t realize the importance of oral health for their pet’s overall well-being. A healthy set of choppers and gums enables your pet to grind up his food with ease. This aids digestion by allowing the enzymes in the stomach to do their job.
- Watch the Scale: Weight management isn’t just for humans. In fact, it’s estimated 54% of dogs and 58% of cats are overweight or obese and according to Data from Nationwide, pet obesity is on the rise for the sixth straight year. Obesity is a significant risk factor for many life-threatening diseases that affect dogs and cats but with diligence and effort, your pet can lose weight too.
