Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
With January comes promises for healthy habits, Pinterest-worthy projects and fit finances in the coming year. As personal goals are set for 2014, Petplan reminds pet parents to include furry friends on the list of resolutions.
Including four-legged family members in New Year’s resolutions won’t only be beneficial for pet’s health (and fun!) but can even inspire parents to get moving as well. People who exercise with their pets tend to lose more weight themselves and stay with a program longer. After all, there aren’t many things more effective than a pair of soulful eyes and an eagerly wagging tail to convince you to go for a walk.
“Just as our health can benefit from resolutions, the same is true for our pets,” says Dr. Jules Benson, Vice President of Veterinary Services at Petplan. “In my experience, pet obesity is the number one danger to our pets. It can lead directly to conditions like diabetes and arthritis, as well as cardiac, circulatory and respiratory problems. Fortunately, it’s also of the easiest to prevent; keeping your pet lean and fit with regular exercise and a balanced diet will make for a happy and healthy pet and will help keep costly health concerns at bay.”
Even with the motivation of that fresh-start feeling that comes with a new calendar page, some resolutions fall by the wayside come springtime. Here are paw-fect resolutions that Petplan encourages you to keep:
