We've all experienced cabin fever and the stir-craziness that comes with the winter months, and unfortunately, this happens to our pets too. Since movement and fun are important to the health and well-being of your pet, you don't have to ditch those when you can't get outside. While it can be tempting for the whole family to melt into the couch for months of movie-watching, this inactivity can lead to obesity in your pets. In turn, obesity can lead to other harmful conditions such as diabetes and/or arthritis.
Feeling uninspired? As veterinarians, we want your furry friends to be as healthy as possible - no matter the time of year. There are many things you and your bestie can do when the weather stinks or you’re otherwise stuck inside. We’ve got eight indoor pet activities to entertain your furry friend. Read on to learn more!
No matter what the winter activity, just make sure to get your faithful friend moving. As with humans, exercise is a key component of pet wellness. If you have any questions about how to keep your furry friend trim and toned during the colder months, give us a call.
