Your pets are your best friends and your constant companions. There’s no one in your house who you would talk to and wouldn’t get a reaction from. There may be some people in your life who don’t even like listening to you. But your pets aren’t one of those. They’ll always listen to you NO MATTER WHAT YOUR AGE IS, WHERE YOU COME FROM, IF YOU’RE A MALE OR FEMALE, ETC. They just need love and how you show it, is what this list is about.
So here are some tips as to how you can take care of your pets and get all the love back from them :
10. PROPER DIET
This is a priority for all kinds of pets. Well, I’m sure you’re a pet lover but if you’re not feeding them properly, then there’s something missing out in your affection for them. Pets love being around people who feed them. Consider a stray, for example. If you feed a stray for a long time, it is but obvious that they’ll create some attachment with you.
Eating is similar to love for them. It is a pet’s way of loving you back. It gives immense happiness to be loved by such a pet. And so, making sure that their diet is proper and the kind of food given to them contains all the nutrients and minerals your pet needs to keep healthy and playful all the time, is the right way to go!
9. WALK IT OUT
Breathe and let breathe. This is the perfect quote that fits in here. Pets need to get out of the house in order for you to train them. This is the best way they’ll listen to you and understand that they have one and only one owner. However, they’ll also listen to others, but will know how to behave and what to do only if you train them well for it.
Also, going out is best for them because sometimes, even pets want to break the monotony. Let them free outside.
This is a MUST. All pets need these injections. There’s nothing more serious than having your pet get admitted to the hospital for infections and allergies and in case you didn’t know, pets have allergies too. And it is best if these infections are well known to the owner so as to avoid rough conditions.
Also, keep in mind that your pet doesn’t have any after effects. In rare cases, pets tend to have allergic reactions to even the vaccines and injections. Make sure your pet stays out of danger.
7. CLEAN ENVIRONMENT.
This is important because your pets live where you do. They will only be free of germs if you keep the house clean and hygienic. Pets are really prone to getting infections if your house isn’t neat and tidy. Although, its different when your pets make their own mess. But well, that’s another case.
Also, it is important that whatever you use to clean your house, isn’t harmful to you and your pet. Because they’re going to be trained enough not to climb on sofas and beds. And that’s why, make sure the that the floor is a good place to be.
6. VET VISITS PLEASE.
This is one job that should be on your weekly ‘to-do’ lists. This is necessary because you need to check and keep into account how your pet is growing up and how well its adapting to its surroundings. Make sure you have a clear account of what it eats and how its reacting to it, what its allergic to etc.
Vets are important as they make sure that your pet has the right amount of everything. Visiting them once a month is beneficial for both you and your pet.
5. SOMEONE SHOULD ALWAYS BE AROUND!
Make sure that some one is always around to take care of the pet. Problems don’t ask and come. And if there’s an emergency and you all have to go somewhere, please leave the pet at someone’s house. Someone who you all trust. A pet’s needs can be as big or small as yours. This is vital, keep in mind.
Sometimes, pets need shelter and a place to be at. And in the very next moment, they want to go out. Please make sure to train your pet in a way that they’re disciplined. This will help.
4. PET SHELTERS!
Adopting pets are like bringing home babies. They’re as needy and as adorable. Also, if you’ve fully convinced yourself to give shelter to a pet, then make sure you’re also ready to do whatever it takes. Build a small home (for example, kennel for dogs) and train your pet to be inside its home whenever it has to sleep or is told to go there.
It is necessary for pets to start responding to their owners. Sometimes it gets out of hand if they aren’t given proper care.
3. KEEP AWAY FROM BACTERIA AND DIRT!
A hygienic environment is a bacteria-free environment. Pets, as mentioned above are vulnerable to bacteria and pesticides because they’re always either inside cages or on the floor. It is recommended that you use a particular kind of cleaner in order to clean your house as pets might not react well to other cleaners.
If possible, ask the vet to give you one which is suitable for both your family and your pet.
This is is different from the one discussed above. Pets have allergies too and as soon as they’re found out, the better it is. Try giving all kinds of food to your pet (the food that is prescribed by the vet.) Then make sure that the pet eats it without having any allergic reaction to it.
However, if the pet has reactions and infections because of it, stop that food immediately.
1. GIVE LOVE, TAKE LOVE!
This is the most important one. Perhaps you know that pets need a lot of support and care when it comes to handling them. And trust me, they don’t have ways to tell you how much they love you for being so affectionate and loving them. All pets need a little bit of discipline as well.
Discipline is what is important too because in this way, the won’t bite/scratch/snarl at anyone or any other pet. It is most important for them.
So, remember to take care of your pet as much as you can. They can be your best buddies and can promise you to be with you through all your problems without asking for too much or even irritating you!
