Shape Up with Your Pet
Lots of people resolve to get in shape in the New Year, but let's not forget our pets! Not only do they need exercise, they can make fun workout buddies too. We've got some ideas to burn calories with your pet plus some indoor games to beat the winter blues.
Before starting a new exercise routine for your pet, you may want to consult with your veterinarian or schedule a check-up. If you have our Level 3 or 4 plan, a yearly exam is covered.
Get Fit with Fido
It may be chilly outside, but there are plenty of ways to exercise inside with your dog. Get your heart rates up by running around the house together using a toy or ball as motivation. For an upper body workout, try an energetic game of tug-of-war.
Aerobicize with Kitty
Interactive games can get you and your cat moving. Try attaching a string to your belt loop and encourage your cat to chase you from room to room. To work your arms, tie a cat toy securely to a ruler and move it up and down for your cat to jump after.
Be careful your pet doesn't chew apart and swallow any toys or strings after you're done. But remember, if an accident does happen, we can help you manage the veterinary bills.
