Fitness Challenge: Pet Health

February is love month not just for Valentine’s Day, but also for pets. It is also Responsible Pet Owners month.

Most owners love their pets and want to keep them healthy. And your pet even keeps you healthy. Many people run with their dogs, or de-stress by stroking a cat. I go to the park almost daily with my puppy, and though it is not my only exercise, I am outside, walking and running with her, for 90 minutes or so.

We tried a harness on our cat, which didn’t work, but I have seen people walking cats, too.

The emBARK on Pet Health campaign, by Sergeant’s Pet Care Products, asks pet owners to take a pledge  to become more mindful of their pet’s ongoing needs. Each pledge leads to the donation of a Sergeant’s Pet Health Kit, which - with the help of the American Humane Association - will be sent to help shelter animals nationwide.

Kits include
Sergeant’s Whiff Shampoo
·        PurLuv Sizzlin Strips
·        SENTRY Petrodex Dental Kit
·        SENTRY Calming Collar for dogs with Good Behavior pheromone technology
·        Sergeant’s Vetscription Joint Eze Plus

After you take the pledge, mark your calendars to be at the 1 hour twitter party, Wednesday, February 20, 7 p.m. ET.
RSVP at Twtvite and follow #SergeantsPet

Prizes include a pet health kit and emBARK on Pet Health t-shirts, with a grand prize adding a $50 gift card to Petsmart.
