We love pets at PAWS! It’s why we have so many accessories for them. We believe our pets aren’t just animals that live with us, but furchildren who need us dearly.
This month is an important one. It’s National Responsible Pet Owners Month. This month is to raise awareness of how to best take care of our pets.
Since there are many ways to care for our pets, the following are some of the most important ones. Check out if you deserve to named a responsible pet owner this month.
Spay or Neuter
With so many good doggies in shelters across the country, everyone needs to do their part in overpopulation. You can do this by getting your dog spayed or neutered.
Can’t afford it? Check into your local humane society or animal services. They usually have events that provide low-cost spaying and neutering. You may even be able to get it for free if you are eligible based on your income.
Unchain Your Pet
Chaining your pet for long periods of time is dangerous. Chained animals can get tangled, which keeps them from their water. This can be a problem during the summer months. Chained animals also can’t get away from predators, or shield themselves from bad weather.
It’s okay to chain your pet for a few minutes, but longer than that, they should be on a leash by your side. If you have a fenced backyard, that is perfect for them to be outside for an hour or more. Just be sure there is water, food, and shelter.
Puppy Proof Your Home
Puppies are just like children – they get into everything. This can end up being dangerous because they can ingest something poisonous. They can also make something fall on them, which could injure them. Be sure to protect your home from your puppy or mischief dog.
Keep Vaccines Up to Date
Vaccines keep your pet healthy. While you may not need all of them, there are ones that will protect your pet from serious illnesses and diseases. Speak to your vet about the most important ones and how you can get them at a lower cost.
Keep Your Dog on a Leash
While you dog may be friendly, other dogs aren’t. This can cause a fight that could result in injuries. Keep your dog on a leash whenever you take him or her out.
All you need to do is love your pet, and keep him or her safe. By following the above criteria for a responsible pet owner, you will be taking care of your furbaby in the best way possible.
