A Message From Your Concord Veterinarian for Responsible Dog Ownership Month

A-Message-From-Your-Concord-Veterinarian-for-Responsible-Dog-Ownership-Month

Your dog is a part of your family. That’s why it’s so important to you that they’re living their happiest, healthiest life. With September being the American Kennel Club’s Responsible Dog Ownership Month, this is a perfect time to think about the best ways to make sure you’re giving them that. And here at Alpine Veterinary Hospital, it’s just as important to us to help you do it, so here are a few tips from your Concord veterinarian on being a responsible dog owner:

 

 

Manage Their Diet

Cats are pure carnivores; dogs aren’t. That’s why the best dog foods contain not only meat but also fruits, vegetables, and grains. Quality ingredients guarantee that your dog is getting what they need to be healthy. Look for the phrase “[Name of product] is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles” on the packaging. This guarantees the food meets minimum standards of full and balanced nutrition. And carefully consider which options fit your dog. Many foods are formulated specifically for different ages, sizes, and activity levels. Talk to your veterinarian to make sure your dog is eating right.

Keep Them Active and Engaged

Dogs were bred to have jobs, from guarding sheep to hunting. So, it’s important to keep your dog mentally stimulated and physically active. Daily exercise is a must. Take your dog on at least two walks a day. You can also bring them along when you bike, rollerblade or jog — so long as the pace is reasonable, and your dog is having fun. And use new sights and smells to stimulate your dog outside, and toys and games at home to keep your dog mentally active and happy.

Regular Checkups With Your Concord Veterinarian

A key part of being a responsible dog owner is making sure your dog is up to date on shots and is getting regular exams and preventative care. Make sure your dog is staying healthy by making an appointment with your Concord veterinarian.
