The Keys to Having Healthy Dogs

January 4, 2019
As a dog owner with over 25 years of experience, I can attest that having a dog is one of the most wonderful things that has ever happened in my life. The companionship and joy they bring is incomparable.

Healthy dogs need a lot of care and attention to maintain their health. In order to have a happy and healthy dog there are guidelines that dog owners must follow.

Beware of Chemicals

The first step is to only use chemicals and cleaning products that are not harmful to dogs. Dogs can ingest these toxic ingredients very easily and this can be very bad for their immune system. An easy way to find cleaning products that are not dangerous to dogs is to perform an internet search for "pet friendly cleaning products" and then purchase them online. These products have become more and more popular in recent years and there is a growing number of companies that now produce these types pf cleaning products. This is an important and often overlooked aspect of having healthy dogs.


Buy Organic Dog Food

Just as chemicals and hormones can be harmful in food that people ingest, it can be bad for dogs as well. Only feed your dog food that is organic and all natural. Many dog foods are processed with additives and artificial ingredients which dogs should not be eating. People can find all natural organic dog food by asking for it at their local pet food store, or by performing an internet search for "organic dog food" and then purchasing it online. Organic dog food will greatly aid in having healthy dogs.

Keep a Clean Environment

Buy an air purifier for the house. The air in people's homes can be very dirty if it is not purified, and a dog is breathing this air much more than people are (as most dogs are in the home close to 24 hours every single day). Invest in an air purifier so dogs are breathing clean air free of bacteria and toxins. This can boost a dog's immune system just as it can boost people's immune systems as well.

A Happy Dog is a Healthy Dog

Happy dogs are usually healthy dogs. A dog that is unhappy can have physical effects from the stress of depression. A dog that is left alone all day, doesn't get enough exercise, or is not treated well is not going to be a healthy dog. When people are unhappy, lonely, or mistreated many times this can affect their physical health, and dogs are no different. For a healthy dog make sure they get enough attention, lots of exercise, and are treated as a part of the family.
