Exercise is good for your pet both mentally and physically--in fact, it is essential for health and a long life. Pet exercise, including walking, running and playing, are also terrific ways to bond with your pet. It helps you become closer and enrich each other’s lives every day. Your Los Angeles veterinarian would like to remind you that, even on days when you are incredibly busy or tired, pet exercise is crucial. Repay your pet for all the joy they bring you by exercising and playing with them and providing loving attention. Exercising your pet is one of the things that makes having a pet in your life so much fun and so fulfilling.
Playing together builds your relationship with your pet as it builds muscle. Beyond exercising together, however, it’s also important, especially if your pet is home all day and you’re away at work (or on vacation), to make sure your pet’s exercise needs are met. Your pet needs physical activity simply to keep from becoming bored, overweight and/or moody. Invest in dog walking services or cat sitters to provide exercise/play. Benefits of pet exercise include:
In our veterinary practice, we help with annual pet wellness checkups to ensure your pet is physically fit. We provide vaccinations and other essential veterinary care to protect your pet while s/he is out in the “wild.” If your pet becomes injured or appears no longer interested in exercise, we'll diagnose the problem and provide treatment to restore pet health and vitality.
You can depend upon our Los Angeles veterinarian for nutritional advice and special diets to suit your pet's breed and age, and deal with health issues like diabetes, loss of appetite or overweight. Visit our Studio City veterinary practice, the Animal Emergency Centre, annually for a pet health checkup. We're here for emergencies and also to answer routine questions about pet exercise, wellness, and nutrition. Call %CLIENT_PHONE% today.
