When most people think of their "New Year’s resolutions", general health and wellness is top-of-mind, consistently ranking as a top goal for both men and women this time of year. Pet owners should try incorporating lifestyle changes that benefit both you and your pet. Veterinarian and pet care expert Dr. Kemba Marshall provides some helpful tips for achieving a healthier lifestyle for you and your animal companions.
1. Exercise is key. Pets, like humans, need physical activity in order to be healthy. The good news is giving your pet adequate daily exercise is easy! For some dog breeds, 30-minute walks are enough. For others, a game of fetch does the trick. Interested in trying something new? Mix up the activity. Try sprinting alongside your pet in quick intervals. Balls are great for fetch, but have you ever tried a Frisbee? Even a quick trip to the mailbox each day is a great option. No matter what, both you and your pet will have fun spending time together and getting a workout.

Kicks the Tires!
Literally. Maybe not for your own pets but stray animals will seek warmth in the engine compartments of a recently parked car during frigid days and nights like we're experiencing.
Keep Pets Nourished!
Did you know that in the winter months pets tend to use more energy to stay warm? Make sure to feed your pets a little more food during the winter and give them plenty of water. This will help them produce the energy they need to stay warmer and will keep them hydrated, which will help moisturize their skin.
Antifreeze is deadly!
While we as humans can tell pretty quickly that Antifreeze is some scary chemicals your pets cannot. Quit the opposite actually, many animals will drink highly-poisonous antifreeze if they come upon it. So make sure that you don't leave it in a place where animals are likely to get to it.
