New Year’s Resolutions for Pet Owners

Happy New Year! Are you setting personal resolutions for yourself this year? If so, that’s great! It’s always good to grow and strive for new goals. Why not include your pet in your resolutions? Read on as a local Los Gatos, CA vet lists some great resolutions for people with pets.

Provide Entertainment/Stimulation

Just like people, pets can get bored and restless with nothing to do. Make sure your four-legged friend has plenty of toys to play with when you are out. We also strongly recommend taking time to play with your furry pal every day. It will be fun for you both!

Spend Quality Time

Modern life can get pretty hectic. Remember to spend time with your furry bff every day. Let Fluffy curl up on your lap as you binge-watch your favorite show, or let Fido nap at your feet. The time we have with our beloved animal companions often passes much too quickly!

Keep Up With Veterinary Care

Many of our patients don’t see us as often as they should. Even if your pet is in good health, it’s still important to keep up with regular exams and vaccinations. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.

Offer Small Comforts

Always keep your four-legged buddy’s well-being in mind. Soft beds, clean dishes and litterboxes, and proper grooming are all little things that can make a big difference. If you leave your pet alone while you’re at work, leave a light and radio on, so your furry buddy isn’t left sitting in a dark, quiet house.

Get Some Great Photos

Our four-legged pals can take some really cute photos. Make an effort to get lots of great pics of your furry friend in the coming year. (Tip: if you have a smartphone, try downloading a pet photo app.)

Don’t Skimp On Ear Scritches

Pets have an amazing ability to offer us unconditional love and unwavering friendship. They stick faithfully by our sides through thick and thin, never judging or criticizing us. Our animal companions don’t ask for much in return, either: just food, shelter, and affection. Pay lots of attention to your pet in 2018. Purrs and tail wags are both precious gifts in our book!

Happy New Year! Please contact us, your Los Gatos, CA pet hospital, for all of your pet’s care needs in 2018. We are happy to help!
