Being a Responsible Pet Owner
They say that if you have a pet, you should be responsible for its wellbeing. If you cannot cope up to demands of your pet, better not have it at all. Here in Singapore, a man was fined $5000 for exposing his dog to sun and rain. On top of that, it was noted that he left little sustenance for the Border collie. The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) called the police because of the abuse.
The man never thought about animal cruelty. To him, it is just a means to an end but for the dog and other people, this is abuse. If you have a pet, whether it is a cat, dog or other exotic animals, you should make sure that everything is well taken care of. Pets deserve our love and time. If at the onset you cannot give this, you should never consider it.
To help you take care of your pets, here are some tips that you can consider:
- Regular examinations – Dogs are like humans; they too can develop illnesses. If you want to ensure their health, you should always bring them to the doctor and have them checked.
- Getting rid of parasites – It is important that you get rid of fleas and other parasites that can irritate the dog. Parasites can cause hair loss and infection too.
- Regular vaccinations – Regular vaccinations should be considered to prevent common illness.
- Providing a suitable environment – You should provide your dog with a suitable environment. The environment should stimulate the dog’s mind. You can purchase many toys for example and spend more time playing with them.
Dogs are loving, affection and loyal. It would add colour and vigour to our life. Please, take care of them as you would want them to take care of you.
