However old or young your dog is, a healthy dog is a happy dog. Recently, a good friend of mine came home one day with Fenna, a beautiful cocker spaniel from a rescue centre. Unknown to me, she had been planning this for a while and had everything ready and checked by the centre’s trained employees.
When I was first introduced to Fenna in my friend’s lounge she hid behind the sofa for the entire two hours. The tips and guidelines my friend was given by the centre and it’s resident vet to keep Fenna happy and healthy have been working like magic, and after just eight weeks she is already transformed into one of the friendliest and most loving canines I have ever met.
For any dog, worming treatment is important in order to keep them healthy and happy by keeping them free from parasites. Drontal Plus claims to kill more varieties of round worm and tape worm than any other wormer and Fenna has no complaints so far. Used in conjunction with a flea treatment, worming regularly (every three months is recommended) can save trips to the vets and also helps to keep your house free of worms.
Diet is vital to keeping your dog healthy, as with the wrong food your pet is probably missing out on the nutrition it needs. Fenna is eating a dog food called the Royal Canin’s Hypo-Allergenic Veterinary Diet, which helps to reduce ingredient and nutrient intolerances, from which she has previously suffered. Advised by the rescue centre’s vet as a cheaper but nonetheless viable alternative to the food Fenna had been eating whilst in the centre, my friend says she loves it and can’t get enough of it, just like you would expect from any normal dog food.
Finally, play time is not only fun for both canine and owner, but it can also provide time to get to know your pet and see their mood change for the better. Dog toys are a great way to add variety to their day, especially if they have to be alone for a while and could do with something to keep them occupied. Fenna loves to play tug-of-war in the garden with anyone who visits!
Have a happy weekend, everyone! Don't forget to put your toys in their baskets to help your moms, okay?
