Lifestyle: Healthy pets are not just given good nutrition but a healthy lifestyle. This is just common sense. Pets need exercise – dogs need plenty of walks, cats need to play. They need warm but ventilated houses to live in, but they don’t need to be exposed to cigarette smoke, or lots of air ‘fresheners’ or other chemicals indoors. Their food and water bowls should be made of stainless steel, earthenware or glass, rather than plastic, aluminium or leaded china, to avoid any chemicals leaching into the contents.

Some pets need to be groomed regularly, some may benefit from regular tooth brushing. If you have a pedigree breed of dog or exotic breed of cat, make sure you know the particular needs of that breed.
