Regular Vet Visits

Regular visits to the vets is vital for the long-term wellness of your pets. It keeps your animal healthy and prevents any major health issues from arising as your furry companion gets older. 

Healthy Diet

A nutritious and well-balanced diet is crucial for a pet’s overall well-being and happiness. Not only will it supply your pet with enough energy to get through its daily activities, but it is also essential for appropriate brain function to take place. An appropriate diet is also essential for animals in the early phases of their growth, and this is especially true for young animals.


Animals need exercise to burn calories, stimulate their minds, and stay healthy. Individual exercise needs vary based on breed or breed mix, sex, age, and level of health. Exercise also tends to help dogs in particular to avoid boredom, which can lead to destructive behaviors.


These simple resolutions will help your pet have the healthiest start to the New Year.  As always, if you find yourself busy and need an extra set of hands in caring for your pet, we’re here for you!  Contact Raleigh Pawz for all of your pet sitting and dog walking needs.
