How to Help Your Pet Have the Healthiest Start to the New Year

As we speed towards the close of another year here in Asheville, NC, our minds are shifting to 2022 and the improvements that we may bring about in that year. We are all starting to think about our personal New Year’s plans, but what about our pets?

Tips for a Healthy New Year

It does not matter if you have a dog or a cat, goats or lizards, you can make some New Year resolutions to help your pet have the best start to the new year possible. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Visit the Vet

Visiting the vet on a regular basis is essential for the long-term health of your pets. Maintaining the health of your animal is important since it helps to prevent significant health problems from developing as your furry friend ages.

Improved Diet

A nutritious and well-balanced diet is essential for a pet’s overall well-being and happiness, so make sure your pet gets plenty of it. Not only will it provide your pet with the energy it needs to get through its everyday activities, but it is also necessary for the proper cognitive ability to take place. Remember, be sure to tailor your pet’s diet based on their age and health status.  

Keep Active

Animals require physical activity to burn calories, stimulate their minds, and maintain their health. Individual activity requirements vary according to the breed or breed mix, gender, age, and state of their health. Exercise also has the added benefit of keeping dogs, in particular, from becoming bored, which can result in undesirable behavior.


These simple resolutions will help your pet have the healthiest start to the New Year.  As always, if you find yourself busy and need an extra set of hands in caring for your pet, we’re here for you!  Contact Asheville Pawz for all of your pet sitting and dog walking needs.
