Embracing a new year is like hitting the reset button on our lives– an opportunity to make resolutions, set goals, and upgrade key areas of life. We want to take better care of ourselves and those we love, including our pets. As a holistic veterinarian, I recommend a renewed focus on these three areas of your pet’s health that may benefit from an upgrade.

  1. Nutrition & Gut Health. Your pet’s microbiome (the bacteria that live in their stomach and intestines) can affect many aspects of health. The balance of bacteria can play a role in digestion, hormonal balance, mood and levels of inflammation. Feeding a raw diet is one of my favorite ways to improve my patients’ gut health. Raw diets likely improve the balance of your pet’s gut bacteria due to the longer transit time through the digestive tract as compared to processed pet food. If your pet is new to eating raw, I recommend starting with Stella & Chewy’s Chicken Frozen Raw Patties for dogs and Chick, Chick Chicken Frozen Dinner Morsels for cats. If you feel you cannot accommodate the thawing process, or have the freezer space, for a frozen raw diet, consider adding freeze dried raw to your pet’s current diet with freeze dried options such as Plate Lickin’ Pork Freeze Dried Dinner Morsels for cats or Purely Pork Meal Mixers for dogs.
  1. Dental Health. Your pet’s dental health is just as important as their nutrition, and there are a variety of ways you can maintain your furry friend’s oral health at home. When dental disease is left untreated it causes inflammation that seeds into the bloodstream affecting major organs like the heart, kidneys, liver and lungs. Dental disease is also painful and most pets suffer silently. Most dogs and cats won’t stop eating or show any signs of pain with dental disease. While brushing your pet’s teeth every day is ideal, many factors may prevent this from being realistic. Looking in your pet’s mouth weekly can go a long way in catching dental disease earlier. Look for broken teeth, tartar accumulation, and red gums. An annual oral exam with your pet’s veterinarian is also vital.

  1. Mental Health. Our pets definitely improve our mental health, and it’s time to give some attention to theirs. Your pet’s mental well-being can affect their physical health too. Here are a few easy tips to help improve your pet’s state of mind:
