Our lives have been turned upside down in the past 18 months with the pandemic. We’ve learned to lean on various things to help us cope. As stress mounted, the companionship of our pets came to be more valuable than ever. A lot of us have been lucky enough to experience first-hand the loving and healing nature of them.
So for all our beloved pets have done for us we must give back and ensure as they grow older we do everything we can to ensure a healthy aging process.
Focus on Wellness
Wellness is of the utmost importance to health and a major factor in your dog’s happiness. An aging, enervated dog often feels gloomy, while an invigorated dog greets life daily with a wagging tail. But we can take steps to keep our dog’s tails wagging for years to come. Senior dogs can beneﬁt greatly from a unique wellness program designed especially for them. Simple lifestyle changes, such as a proper diet, exercise, and physical therapy, can help older dogs feel and perform better in their daily lives.
Purchasing products for your home, such as orthopedic bedding, a raised bowl, steps or ramps leading to your dog’s favorite spot, and “slipper” socks that have non-skid material on the bottom, can help ease the transition to old age for your pet. All of these products are easy to ﬁnd online.
As pets become older, it becomes harder to digest their food. Feeding them smaller, more frequent meals, and adding a supplement with enzymes and probiotics, plus omega-3 fatty acids and a multivitamin can help. My G.I. Balance Powder is excellent for this and it helps maintain a healthy intestinal tract and proper gut flow.
Maximize Pet Health
As pet parents grow increasingly concerned about the health of their pets, they’re willing to put forth effort, money, and time to find the most effective ways to maximize the health of their companion animals, according to a recent post in Pet Age. Pet supplements are becoming increasingly popular.
“Overall, pet supplements are following the trend in human health and the desire to live healthier lives,” said Derek Archambault, vice president of marketing for FoodScience LLC, the Vermont-based company responsible for several brands, including VetriScience, which last year launched its Golden Years line. “Humans see their pets as part of the family and want to see them live healthier and longer lives too.”
When choosing supplements it’s important to thoroughly research to ensure your pets are getting the most natural ingredients devoid of fillers, artificial coloring, or flavors. In caring for my own pets, I wanted to make sure they were getting the best quality supplements which is why I created a collection of products and supplements that are safe, effective, and time-tested. My Immune Boost is perfect to increase energy and vitality in any dog and improve immunity.
With a little extra care, we can ensure our precious pets stay healthy, happy, and tail wagging well into old age.
