3 Steps to Keep Your Pet Healthy and Happy #GetHealthyHappy

The past few months, we've brought you information from the 'Healthier Pets. Happier Lives' campaign, created to help pet parents understand the importance of preventative care to help make pets healthier and happier for the long run.

For me, it's important to keep an eye on Rocco's health and do whatever I can so that he'll be a part of my life for a long, long time. Keeping your pet healthy and happy all boils down to these three key areas:

Vet Checkups

Not visiting a vet for a year, is like you avoiding your doctor for five years. A yearly checkup gives your vet the opportunity to get to know your pets, making it easier to detect changes in their health and behavior. These visits also can help your vet spot problems before they become too serious.

Read more about why regular vet visits matter.

Proper Nutrition

With so many choices available, choosing the right food for your pet can be overwhelming. With the help of your vet, you can learn about your pet's health needs, and then your vet can help recommend the best food for your pet.

Little Extras

Toys, play and training help keep your pet mentally stimulated, which goes hand in hand with physical activity to keep your pet healthy and happy.

While training or using treat dispensing interactive toys, pet parents can reinforce good behavior with healthy, tasty treats. Hill's has several treats that feature balanced nutrition that can help make training time extra fun!
