March 20 is the first day of Spring. After a long and cold winter, the sun is peeking out of the clouds, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and most of all, the animal world is coming out of a long hibernation. It’s the perfect time to get your pet off the couch, out of the house and back to the park, the beach or even the trails.
Before you and your pet endure yourselves to any physical activity, it’s best to prepare yourselves. We created a Spring pet health checklist to make sure your pet is in the best shape for the upcoming season.
Get a Checkup with a Vet. At Home.
A checkup or two every year would be optimal for both humans and pets. But did you know you can bring the veterinary care to your home? Vetted PetCare, the leading provider of in-home veterinary services in the country, can do that just for you.
Vetted’s team of experienced, hardworking veterinarians care for dogs and cats at home, where the pets (and owners) are most relaxed. Each of these house calls is attended by a veterinarian/veterinary technician team. The team has with them all the supplies they need to perform almost all the same services they would in a traditional veterinary clinic, like weighing pets, administering shots, blood, and other diagnostic sampling, microchipping, and more.
Vetted is based in L.A., they currently serve pets in L.A., San Francisco and the Bay Area, and even New York City.
Got Joint Pain?
Is your pet suffering from joint pain or from the aches and pains that come with age? We recommend a preventative supplement aptly named Happy Again Pet. It’s a collagen-based powder that you can mix with water or just add on top of your pet’s meal. It’s the perfect relief for arthritis, dysplasia, and overall stiffness.
Hitting the Trails? Got Snacks?
Now that your pet got the green light for physical activities and you’re taking the preventative measures to avoid future aches and pains - it’s time to take out your pal to the park or to the trails. If you take long hikes in the forest or the hills or even to the local park, it’s important to have water at the ready. A collapsable dog bowl is a great option for outdoor activity.
But more important are snacks. Our friends at Trail Dog Treats have the perfect homemade snacks made for your energetic pet. Trail Dog Treats promotes a healthy lifestyle for your dog by providing all natural, wheat, soy & dairy free dog treats baked with human-grade ingredients, no preservatives.
Here’s a listing of some of the ingredients: Organic rye flour, sunflower seeds, organic flax meal, carrots, cornmeal, almonds, honey, all natural peanut butter, rolled oats, molasses & more!!

Spring is coming. And so is summer. The sun is coming out and will be out for a while. Are you ready? Is your pet ready? Make sure you take the measures to ensure their health with a vet visit (at home) and feeding the right supplements and snacks to your pet.
