Our pets needs have much in common with our own, a healthy diet, ample exercise to maintain strength, mobility and support healthy body mass
especially at this time of year.
The change of season when we both may have a tendency to bulk up which may raise blood pressure, circulation
and joint health issues as a result of the increased loads weight gain imposes on joint health. It is widely accepted that companion pets are overall good for our health both mentally and physically, we can see this
in nursing homes that encourage pet visits; there is a settling and soothing outcome and the resulting recovery of surviving partners of long term relationships. The support one experiences through the loss of a partner is widely recognised.
