Our best friends Generally, pets play an important role in our lives. It’s useful to know, how to take care of them and behave as they were people too. In the next pages you can find some useful tips!
A new buddy at home Before you bring your new friend home, it's best to be prepared to prevent unnecessary confusion and stress. Establish the rules. Decide who's responsible for what: grooming, feeding, exercising, cleaning, play-time, and so on. Also establish whether or not there will be areas that are "off-limits" for your new pet. For example, you may not want your pet to sleep on the bed. Have all the necessary supplies ready. Examples are food, food and water bowls, leash or harness, collar and identification, brush, and so on. Lock away household chemicals and place houseplants out of reach. Have separate areas for your new pet and any existing pets. Keep other pets away at first. Your new pet may be nervous...help him or her feel more comfortable by keeping your other pets confined. Make sure everyone knows how to properly handle your pet. Tie electrical cords out of the way, if you can.
How Do You Know if Your Pet is Sick? Here are a few guidelines in recognizing a sick pet: Unexplained or sudden weight loss. Significant loss of appetite or increased appetite. Vomiting. Pawing at ears or shaking head. Lumps on body. Significant fur loss (not just shedding, which is normal); dull, patchy coat. Persistent sneezing or coughing. Abnormal discharge from the eyes or nose. Stiffness or weakness in any joints; pet moves with difficulty. Injury. Note: Keep the name and number of the closest emergency vet clinic (for after-hours pet care), as well as those of your regular vet, close by the telephone.
Nutrition and Feeding Your Pet A well-balanced diet with the proper nutrition is important for a happy, healthy pet. Most commercial pet foods are good because they can vary significantly in nutritional value. Don't feed your pet table scraps. "People food" is not formulated to meet the nutritional needs of your pet and it's often too greasy or rich. Limit the treats. They are often salty and fatty and they can make your pet fat. Don't feed bones to your pet. Bones can cause serious problems such as choking, vomiting, and so on. Set a feeding schedule. Pets should be fed several times a day, with the number of meals decreasing as they get older. Establish a schedule and stick to it. Always provide fresh water. Leave the water out so that your pet may drink whenever he or she likes.
