Keep your pet at a healthy weight: Obesity can lead to a variety of health problems, so it's important to monitor your pet's diet and exercise to help them maintain a healthy weight.

Provide proper grooming: Regular grooming will help keep your pet's coat clean and healthy, and can also help prevent skin problems.
