Increase the Lifespan of Your Female Dog by Doing the Following Things
Oct 31, 2017
Your dog is a part of your family. She’s a companion and a best friend. You’d do anything to keep her safe and healthy, right?
If you answered, “Yes,” we have some ideas on how to make your dog as comfortable and happy as you can throughout her lifetime. By taking precautionary measures while she’s young, you’re able to do just that. You’re doing what it takes to protect your pet and her health.
Here are some of the things you can do to increase the lifespan of your female dog:
- Schedule regular check-ups with the vet. This gives you a good idea as to how well your young dog is growing and developing. It allows you to address any concerns that the vet may have about her weight, bone mass, etc.
- Make sure she is eating a balanced diet. It ensures that she is getting the nutrients she needs to grow and thrive. Don’t overfeed her by giving her too much food or too many treats.
- Get outdoors and give her some exercise. Take her on walks. Play ball with her. When she isn’t in heat, bring her to the dog park so she can socialize with other dogs.
- Don’t have her spayed prematurely. Spay her when she’s older and able to handle the procedure better. Prevent premature pregnancy by investing in an anti-breeding dog chastity belt. Equip it with dog diapers so she can use the bathroom with no issues.
Delay Her Spay anti-breeding harnesses provide effective protection from unplanned pregnancies. Your female dog doesn’t need to feel additional discomfort when she is in heat. Instead, she can go about her daily routine without fear of attracting too much attention to herself. By adding pads to the harness, you safeguard your furniture, flooring, and bedding from pet stains while your dog is in heat.
