& Recuperating Canines
is essential for maintaining pet fitness and health.
Senior dogs, and those recuperating from medical
care (e.g., spay or neutering) should resume exercise
slowly, and avoid the hottest times of the day.
You and your vet should determine whether your pet
is in shape for an activity you've chosen, to ensure
it won't exceed limitations. Based upon your pet's
status, and vet's recommendations, HappyPets©
will provide a 'ramp-up' excercise program, tailored
to your pet's needs. For example, we begin with
leashed dog walks for 10 minutes per day. After
a week, walks can be increased to 15 minutes, and
then (depending on your dog's or puppy's condition)
increased to 30 minutes a day. Each excercise session
is followed by a monitored 'cool-down' period, where
we observe your pet, provide fresh water, and lots
good? Check with your veterinarian to be sure excercise
plans are suited to your pet's physical condition.
Then call HappyPets© at (352) 373-0898; we'll
help your pet regain strength through gradual excercise,
at its own pace.
Changes - New
Puppy, Kitten, and/or Infant In Your Home?
new residents arrive, animals often exhibit behavior
changes, especially while their owners are away. Some
pets react to new babies with jealousy and become
rambunctious, looking to regain your attention. Puppies
or dogs left alone can develop separation anxiety,
often resulting in barking, howling, soiled rugs,
and destructive habits (chewing, digging, etc). Cats
also express anxiety by shredding, 'missing' the litterbox,
and vomiting. Fortunately, many pets just need reassurance
and time to adjust. Call HappyPets© at (352)
373-0898; we want to help ensure your pet's well-being.
Your Pet Lose A Long-time Companion?
so, it may be lonely, anxious, and missing its friend.
HappyPets© provides special attention, playtime,
and lots of TLC to reassure your pet. We are dedicated
to helping reduce your pet's stress and boredom.
Tips For Older Pets
are more likely to be overweight than younger pets,
due to decreased activity, overfeeding, and reduced
dietary needs. Weight loss treatment for older pets
includes limiting calories, feeding two or three small
meals daily (rather than one large meal), and increasing
exercise. Choosing a specially formulated pet food
also helps provide the proper balance of protein,
fat, calories, vitamins and minerals.
HappyPets© help monitor and record your pet's
food, water, and medicine intake, to get it back on
the road to good health!
