Pet Care 101: Making Smarter Choices For Your Pet’s Health

Trust us, your pet will definitely thank you.

Adding a new furry friend to your home will bring you much joy. All the snuggles, purrs, and cuddles—life couldn’t get any better than being a fur parent. However, being a fur parent is a big responsibility. Of course, you would want what would keep your fur baby happy and healthy. 

But where do you start? We’ve rounded up the best tips for making smarter choices for your pet’s health.

Like humans, pets also need a healthy and nutritious diet. Make sure to feed them a diet considering their weight, size, age, and needs. Many pet foods are created with specific ingredients, so be responsible enough to read the label when you buy one from a pet shop. 
You can also ask your vet, especially when you think your fur baby has food allergies. They will suggest the right diet to keep your pet happy and healthy. 

Combining exercise with good nutrition is the best thing you can do to keep your pet physically and mentally fit. Exercising provides them with exploration, scent enjoyment, socialization, and much more. For dogs, it is recommended that they should exercise for 30 minutes-2 hours every day. And for felines, they should have play time for 5-10 minutes. You can even add an interactive toy to their routine as it will help them be more entertained and stimulated.


It is recommended to take your pet to a vet for an annual wellness check so the veterinarian can perform various health screens for early detection of diseases and to recognize warning signs of serious illness. Your fur baby should also have yearly dental appointments to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

You must research or ask your vet about the best supplements your pet should take. Like us, some people have low iron levels or need more vitamin C— our fur babies are the same! Before giving them vitamins or supplements, you should talk to your vet about the best vitamin for your furry friend. 


Grooming is one of the most important ways to keep your pet healthy. This includes keeping your pet’s nails trimmed, brushing them a couple of times a week, and giving them regular baths. This way, you could monitor changes in your pet’s fur or coat, like dandruff, patches, or even dry skin.
