Exercise Habits For Pets

Good exercise habits for pets help ensure they have a long, happy, and healthy life. Like people, pets need exercise and a well-balanced diet; however, it is not always easy to determine the right amount of activity for our pets. Every pet and breed can be different, and seeing a veterinarian can help determine how much playing, running, and walking your pet should get in daily. Our veterinarians at Henderson Animal Hospital in Winnipeg, MB, can help provide advice and tips on maintaining good exercise habits for pets.

The Right Amount Of Running And Walking

Pets have a lot of energy to burn off, and determining the right amount of running and walking can help keep them healthy and in shape. Puppies tend to have more energy but may need play and exercise sessions broken down into smaller chunks of time. Elderly pets may not be able to walk long distances but still need to get out and exercise. Speak with a veterinarian on our team to determine the right amount of exercise for your pet.

Building Great Exercise Habits For Your Pet

Start establishing good exercise habits early to ensure your pets get used to the routine and have a healthy life from the start. Establishing a good exercise plan for your pet may require you to start exercising too. To prevent your pets from sitting around the home all day, take your pet on a walk. Exercising with your pet can help you to create a healthy exercise routine for yourself as well.
