National Love Your Pet Day
It's coming up on the 20th February, 2023
February 20th is celebrated as 'Love Your Pet Day'.
This is a day dedicated to showing appreciation and affection to our furry friends who bring so much joy and love into our lives.
As pet owners, it’s important to remember that our pets are more than just animals. As I'm sure we would all agree, they are members of our family.
In this blog, we will be discussing various ways to show love to your pet and treat them like the special parts of our lives they are!
Spending time with your pet is one of the best ways to show them that you love them. This can mean anything from taking them for a walk, playing with them in the park, or simply cuddling on the couch.
It's important to carve out time each day to spend with your pet, to ensure they are getting the adequate attention that they need.
Plus, it's also guaranteed to give you a boost of serotonin as who doesn't love snuggles/play time with their pet?!
Another way to show love to your pet is by providing them with a healthy and balanced diet. A well-nourished pet is a happy pet, and a happy pet is a loving pet. Feeding your pet a diet that meets their nutritional needs not only keeps them healthy, but it also helps to prevent various health issues and extend their lifespan.
We recommend using Pet Drs Mega Oil daily, for an added boost of omegas and essential fatty acids, to their diet.
Comfortable Is Key!
Our pets spend a lot of time in their living spaces, and it's important to make sure that these spaces are comfortable and inviting.
This means providing them with a soft and cozy bed (try an orthopaedic bed for extra support), toys to play with, and plenty of space to move around.
If you don't have an ample amount of space, ensure you are taking your dog to new environments regularly, so that they can have new experiences and keep their senses stimulated.
A dog's diet should not be made up solely of treats... however they are a great way to show love to your pet on the odd occasion.
Treats can be used for training or just for fun, and there are many different types of treats available to suit your pet's taste and dietary needs.
Just be sure to give treats in moderation and avoid giving them anything that may be harmful.
We recommend Pet Drs Novel Protein Treats for a healthy alternative which will have them drooling for more!
Adventure With Them
Pets love to explore and go on adventures, and taking them on outings can be a great way to get both yourself and your pet out of the house.
This can be as simple as going for a walk in the park, or as elaborate as a trip to the beach or the mountains.
Just be sure to plan ahead and take the necessary precautions to keep your pet safe.
If your pet struggles with dry paws after walking on bitumen, keep a stick of Paw Balm handy for an instant way to hydrate their paws.
We don't like to be bias but how good is buying your dog a new item from Pet Drs and seeing how excited they get?!
Whether it be a LickiMat to stimulate their creativity whilst you're at work, a robe to keep them cosy during Winter, or simply a bag of Gut & Immunity to keep their tummy nourished... whatever it may be, they are bound to reciprocate the love with many licks!
