Our pets do not just make us healthier; they make us happier too. That's why we need to do the same by making sure our pet's health starts from the inside out.This means that healthy meal management, balanced nutrition and safe food consumption are as important as proper hygiene practices, medical and pet care.

Health for pets is a condition that we need to establish every day through correct choices of food, medicine, exercises, and actions. Follow these eight (8) steps you can do to keep your pets healthy:

1) Exercise your pets and keep a healthy weight

Begin a healthy routine by allocating time to exercise your pet each day. Take a walk at the start and end of a specific day to energize your pets and ensure regular sleeping patterns or habits. Consider what type of exercises you let your pets do depending on climate or season.

2) Feed your pets with a healthy and balanced diet

A well­ balanced diet is the foundation of your pet's health. When buying for the right food, always make sure that ingredients are fresh and organic. Check the labels and purchase products from holistic food manufacturers and with certification from a feed control organization. Avoid unhealthy food such as “treats”with additives and artificial colors.

3) Find the right medical pet care

It is very important for your pet's health and well­-being that to decide to choose the best and right veterinarian. This goes to choosing the veterinarian hospital that is clean and conveniently located near your area. Remember to have your pets get their vaccinations including rabies and distempter.

4) Keep your pets free from parasites and fleas in a natural way

Choosing the right and safe flea prevention is very challenging, as well as preventing parasites and fleas in general. Some products contain insecticides and ingredients that are linked to health problems in humans. Exposure to these chemicals can cause damage to young pets and children.

As an alternative, use a pet­-friendly non-allergenic shampoo. Never use human products. Instead, consult your veterinarian for the best products for your pets.

5) Create a "pet­safe" home

Some pets, during their younger stages, are curious and active. While these can make us laugh, and ideal for picture perfect moments, always remember that some household are dangerous and even fatal to animals. Accidents do happen no matter how careful we are. So make ready your emergency first aid kit and prepare your vet and contact information to a nearest animal emergency room and poison control center.

6) Build an emotional, mental and physical bond with your pet

It is an excellent way to build a bond with your pets by considering their breed'straits. If they were bred to hunt and run around, they might like playing fetch or hide­-and- seek with toys. Also occasionally do a hand­ feeding to your pets with organic treats to have a connection with them.

7) Perform regular grooming

Regular dog grooming doesn't mean every day. However, if it is necessary to brush your pet's coat on a daily basis, you may do so. Brushing can help you discover fleas, parasites and ticks that would endanger your pet's health. Trim your pet's toenails if you are comfortable in doing so (or you may ask your veterinarian to demonstrate it to your pet first). Bathe your pets if you don't like how they smell,but you need to also consider to doing it correctly to avoid flaky skin from too much soap and shampoo.

8) Let your pets socialize

Introduce your pets to new people, places, objects and situations with your full control.It is the pet owner's responsibility to protect their pets from situations that terrify them. As simple as letting someone get too close to your pet can trigger setbacks, causing your pet to hide or adopt a fear and aggressive position. If this happens, correct the human, not the dog. Taking your pet fora walk on a leash offers effective socialization opportunities. However, avoid parks and other areas where your pets will be exposed to disease.
