Tip 249


A doggie treadmill is a great investment for a number of reasons. Its great for elderly dog owners who have difficulty getting out and about themselves to exercise their pet. It’s great for older dogs that need exercise but can’t go long distances any more. And finally, they are great if the weather is way too hot or way too cold for walks outside. A win-win-win!

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
