Aussies will celebrate their pets this week for the first ever official Australian Pet Appreciation Week and take the time to look more closely at their dogs’ and cats’ health.

Australia is home to over 25 million pets, more than the country’s population, with most families seeing their four legged friend as part of the family. PAW by Blackmores will this week pay tribute to our furry friends with the release of ‘Dogs of Australia – The Untold Stories of Our Canine Heroes’ eBook, which has the aim of showcasing the importance of appreciating our pets and their health.

Pets have a profound impact on our health, with studies showing pets help to improve our psychological and overall wellbeing, improve heart health and even impact our immune system*. How can owners reciprocate and help keep their pets healthy?

“From baking special healthy treats for your dog, to stimulating the kitten in your cat, it really doesn’t take much to show your appreciation for your pet in a healthy way,” Dr. Warren said.

To take the message of Pet Appreciation Week one step further PAW by Blackmores has put together an eBook of touching stories of brave and selfless pets who have made a huge difference in their owners’ lives.

Dogs of Australia – The Untold Stories of Our Canine Heroes is dedicated to these amazing pets and is the perfect reminder to appreciate our furry friends this Pet Appreciation Week.
