All the Pet Accessories You Need for a Healthy and Happy Dog

By on Last modified: August 22, 2016

One of the reasons why your dog may be cranky and lazy and all lethargic may be that you’re using the wrong care products, or maybe that he’s missing something from his arsenal of doggy stuff. Think of your dog like a part of the family; would you allow your kid to be missing the proper bed, or maybe feed it with something that makes him unsatisfied? Not a chance, right? The same goes for the dog; a healthy and happy dog is the result of a very proper and high quality care procedure.

That being said, reconsider your arsenal of pet accessories – what do you have, do you really need it and are you using it properly? If, on the other hand, you’re just about to welcome a new puppy in your house, you should at least welcome him well prepared. Here are all the necessities you should have ready to use.

Naturally, the first thing you’d think about is where would the dog sleep. For a puppy, you could get something small and cosy, and most importantly, warm. Puppies are still small and sensitive to temperature changes, and you don’t want to risk colds. If you have an older dog that’s been in the family for quite some time, you may consider changing his bedding. Maybe the cushion is worn out and maybe the dog has outgrown the existing bed he has. In both cases, the newer the better.

Food and Water Bowls

Nothing is worse than serving your dog’s food and water in improper dishes. It makes it hard for him to feed itself and you know how it goes: a poorly fed dog is an unhappy dog. And even ill or worse, an angry one. Nutrition is the most important condition for a healthy and happy pet, so having a few quality bowls in your pet accessories collection is a very smart move. Make sure you get one of each material so you can change them and add variety to the feeding process of your pet.

Hygiene Products

Even if you keep it at home most of the time, your pet is eventually going to go out. Whether it’s for a walk, for his necessities, or on a trip with you, once it gets out it’s under the attack of all kinds of insects and other types of microorganism like fleas, worms and ticks that lure on his skin and fur. It is your responsibility towards his and your health to protect your dog from these microorganisms. Sprays, proper shampoos and medicated collars are on your disposal for this purpose. It’s best if you have them all, as the most important thing for the happiness of both of you is the dog’s health. A healthy dog barks of happiness, jumps and plays. A sick one is just a very sad sight to look at.
