Happy Healthy Pet Tips

Happy Healthy Pet Tips From Collierville Animal Clinic & Surgery Center

As a pet owner, there’s much you can do to keep your pet healthy and happy over the years. Scheduling an annual pet wellness exam with your Collierville veterinarian is an excellent start. Quality veterinary care from Collierville Animal Clinic can enhance the health and happiness of your Collierville, Piperton or Germantown pet. Here are a few more ways to help your pet live a healthy, happy life.  



Playtime is a great way to ensure your pet gets the exercise he needs. When walking your dog, stop to play. Dogs love fetching, chasing and jumping games. Fresh air and exercise will keep your pet fit while making life more interesting and fun. You can also play indoor games with your cat. A laser pointer can keep your kit bouncing around for hours.  

Pets thrive on physical and mental stimulation. By providing them with opportunities to play, socialize and explore, you contribute to their health and happiness.

Healthy Diet

Nutritious (and delicious) food will help your pet stay healthy and happy. If you’re not sure what qualifies as “healthy” dog or cat food, ask our vet. By taking advantage of our nutrition counseling services, you can ensure your pet is getting the most from his diet. Nutritious meals and snacks will keep your pup and kit happy, healthy and fit.


A secure pet is a happy pet. When walking, keep your dog on a leash so he doesn’t wander off. Maintain a clean and secure indoor environment for your cat to prevent accidents. Have your vet microchip your pet so he can find his way home if he gets lost.


Pets thrive on love and attention. Give your pet plenty of TLC and he will reward you with the same. At Collierville Animal Clinic, our veterinarian will treat your pet with kindness and respect. Whether you live in Collierville, Germantown or Piperton, you can rest assured that your pet will receive the best of care.
