4 Tips to Start the New Year Off on the Right Paw

Address Your Pet's Dental Health

An often overlooked but crucial part of your pet's well-being is their dental health. Dental health isn't just about preventing bad breath; it plays a vital role in a pet's overall health as bacteria from poor oral hygiene can go into the bloodstream and cause issues with your pet's kidneys, liver, or heart.

Regular tooth brushing is the cornerstone of a good dental care routine and helps remove plaque and tartar. Introduce your dog to tooth brushing gradually, using dog-friendly toothpaste and a dog-safe toothbrush like Vet's Best Dental Care Kit. Providing your dog with dental chews like YakOSnaks is also a great way to help promote a healthier smile. Not only does a dental chew keep them entertained, but it also helps in maintaining oral health as the act of chewing works to clean teeth.

Choose the Right Liquid Supplement for Your Pet's Needs

Sometimes, our pets need a little boost and liquid supplements are an easy way to support them.

Poor Skin and Coat Quality: Does your pet shed excessively, have patches of fur loss, or a dull coat? Omega fatty acids help support proper skin function and vitamin E is an antioxidant and required nutrient for skin and coat health. Adding Fish Oil or Lickochops to your pet's meal each day can help promote healthy skin and a shiny coat by adding these beneficial nutrients into their diet.

Digestive Issues: Probiotics in liquid supplements like Lickochops help promote a healthy balance of good bacteria in your pet's gut and support healthy digestion.

Mobility Issues or Arthritis: A hip and joint supplement like BeneBoost Hip & Joint can support your dog's mobility and help maintain healthy bone and joint function. Ingredients include MSM that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, chondroitin which helps support the growth and maintenance of cartilage, and glucosamine that plays a vital role in building and maintaining healthy joints.

Stress or Anxiety: A calming supplement can help your dog cope better with external stresses by promoting a sense of calmness and relaxation and reducing stress or anxiety-related behvaiors. Try BeneBoost Calming to help your dog through stresses like separation anxiety, fireworks, thunderstorms, or traveling.

Ensure Your Pet is Getting Beneficial Nutrients

Did you know that 70% of your pet's immune system is based in their gut? Pet food is cooked at such high temperatures and intense pressures that many nutrients can be destroyed. When fed nutrient-depleted food, your pet can develop itching, excessive shedding, digestive issues, and more. Adding a daily supplement like Dinovite powder to your pet's routine can help ensure they receive the beneficial nutrients they need for a happy, healthy life.

Dinovite contains prebiotics, probiotics, omega fatty acids, and other important nutrients. Our unique formula helps promote a healthy balance of good bacteria in your pet's gut which helps promote a strong immune system, supports digestion, skin and coat health, and the assimilation of vital vitamins and minerals.

Reward with the Right Treats

Treats are a big part of our daily routine with our pets as it's how we show we care and bond with our furry friends. Along with a healthy diet, choosing the right treat is an important part of your pet's well-being. Always read ingredient labels when selecting treats and avoid treats that contain fillers, artificial colors, preservatives, or other additives. Also watch out for high-calorie treats so you don't overfeed your pet.
