Most people do their best to stay fit and healthy. You might even work quite hard at it, trying to refine your technique. If nothing else, it’s good just to get out for some fresh air. Perhaps you have a preferred way for keeping fit and healthy. Walking, jogging and running are some of the best forms of exercise for this. But all those miles aren’t enough to ensure good health. There’s plenty more we can all be doing.
Many family households are busy, bustling places. Kids, adults and pets are all living together and that can be chaotic at times. It doesn’t matter who lives with you. You’ve got to make sure everyone under your roof is fit and healthy. Cats and dogs are all different characters, just like the rest of us. And just like humans, they want to be out in the fresh air too.
Perhaps you all go on a lot of walks? Lots of dog owners wish they could do a few more each week. It’s nice to treat our pets when they’re well behaved as well. And most humans love a tasty treat too! Healthy eating is something we all aspire to achieve. Perhaps you’re on track with your daily fruit and veg portions. Pets also need to eat special food that’s full of nutrients to keep them strong.
Disease prevention is something that is has been in the press a lot lately. Washing hands is one of the best ways to avoid getting colds or passing them on to others. Some people like to take advantage of the seasonal jabs that the doctor may offer. They don’t always prevent every strain of flu, but it is thought they might speed up the recovery. Most pets have annual vaccines too.
If you have several dogs in the house, it is really important that you take advantage of preventative medications. You don’t want them passing nasties like fleas and worms onto each other. Regularly using worming treatments like Trifexis can make sure there are no tummy troubles for your pets. Flea treatments are essential to prevent a nasty outbreak of itching. Pet skin can become very sore when they start tearing their fur out.
Children in the house will always bring something home from school or nursery. It’s all a part of growing up. But you don’t have to let it slow them down. A good supply of menthol vapour for babies is usually enough to keep them clear. Extra tissues when they have a runny nose is essential too. Washing your hands thoroughly will help you prevent catching anything, or spreading it to other families. Kids are so active, so getting them out and playing in the park is something you should aim to do every day.
Some people love being active, and others prefer not to sweat. You can still keep fit and healthy by walking instead of taking the car. And owning three dogs will definitely keep you fit! Stay healthy.
