Make your pet a part of your 2022 New Year’s resolutions

The new year is the time for setting goals and starting fresh, including for your pets. It is a time to make their health and happiness a priority too. RCHS would like to offer some ideas for your pet. It’s very easy for your pet’s weight to gradually increase over time, so make sure you are measuring out their food daily and choosing an age-appropriate diet. Incorporate more play time into your routine or try a new activity to keep your pets active and help maintain that healthy weight. Don’t forget to schedule regular checkups with your veterinarian to stay up to date on vaccines and help to detect any concerns early on. The vet can also offer tips on practicing good oral hygiene, grooming habits and mental health for your pets. Teaching new tricks or replacing old toys with new can help with your pet’s mental stimulation. Make sure to update your pet’s identification information in case of an emergency. For more information and tips, please contact the adoption center at 802-483-6700.
