5 Simple Tips To Keep Your Dog Healthy

If you want your dog to be healthy, you have to take the time to ensure that your dog's needs are being met. Frequently, people will purchase a new puppy simply because it looks cute in the pet store window. However, without being prepared to adequately take care of and nurture your dog, you may discover that your new pet suffers ill health. It is much better to take the little steps daily, to ensure that you have a healthy dog, rather than neglect those areas and watch your dog become sick. Here are five tips for ensuring that you have a healthy dog.

1. Make Sure Your Dog has Plenty of Fresh Water
Many people make the mistake of not giving their dog fresh water daily. You should make sure that your dog always has fresh water available, and be sure to thoroughly wash out the dog’s bowl as well. This is important to protect bacteria from growing.

2. Always have Plenty of Dog Food on Hand.

It is a good idea to feed your dog according to the recommended amount of food needed according to the weight of your dog. You should ask your veterinarian for the best type of food for your dog as well. Your veterinarian can ensure that you are feeding your dog the adequate amount of food, as well as the best food for your breed. Puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs, and this should be taken into consideration when choosing dog food.

3. Make sure you Dog Receives His or Her Shots

There are many diseases that can ravage the life of your dog. To ensure that your dog remains healthy and has an upper hand over these Canine diseases, make sure that your puppy receives his or her shots according to the schedule prescribed by your veterinarian.

4. Give your Dog Exercise Outdoors Daily

Your dog needs fresh air to be healthy. This means going out for daily walks, or just letting him or her have time to run around freely in the yard. However, it is imperative that you give your dog the fresh air that he or she needs daily.

5. Bring your Dog to Regular Checkups with a Veterinarian

The simplest way to ensure that your dog remains healthy is to find a good veterinarian, and bring your dog for regular checkups. The veterinarian will be able to determine any illnesses or sickness that otherwise may go unnoticed.
