Daytime Pet Wellness

Posted: Updated:
We are talking pet wellness today and Jenn Fadal, founder of ThePackMom.com, is here to give us a few tips on making sure our pet is healthy and happy from the inside out.  
Four pillars of pet health:
1. Exercise:  Believe it or not the 2012 National Pet Obesity Survey found that over 52% of dogs are overweight or obese and over 58% of cats in the United States.  This means nearly 80 million pets in America are FAT!
All pets need exercise- the easiest way is to get MOVING with your pet!  Move that MUTT!  
Props:  Activity vest, fetch launcher, floating toys.   
2. Proactive Healthcare- see vet yearly!  Be preventative- stretch your dog, use supplements as needed.
Props:  supplements and stretch mat
3. Nutrition:  Is the cornerstone to health.  Look for Made in the USA ingredients.  The less ingredients the better.  All natural food is the way to go in both food and treats.  And MEASURING food is essential.
Props:  Made in the USA, all natural treats and food
4. Love:  Make sure to love your pet everyday and get those endorphins working over time in both them and you.
