Set some 2023 goals for your small furry pets
December 21, 2022
As we enter the next year, we think about what our goals and challenges are going to be to help refocus ourselves. Many of us set goals of exercising more or trying something new. Our pets are also often a part of that focus for looking ahead and thinking of how we want to build our relationships with them as we go forward.
Our Preston nursing team have come up with some ideas for how to strengthen your bond with and enrich the lives of your rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, and other small furry pets in 2023.
Setting goals for our relationship with our pets can come in all sorts of different ways and our small furry friends are equally apart of that goal setting. Goals help to organise our thoughts and think of ways we want to improve.
Our Preston nursing team recommend that using this opportunity at the beginning of a new year to help improve our pets’ lives is a great way to identify where we can make improvements and then implement them.
A few suggested goals may be:
- To change enrichment more regularly to help with mental stimulation
- To expose them to new activities or games
- To get into a routine for giving them regular health checks or grooming sessions
- To build or buy a new living area or expand on their current one
Goals don’t need to be expensive or take masses of time but just consider what little improvements we can make to help our small furry friends have a more enjoyable life.
