Risky Behavior of Dog owners

January 7, 2017

 
 
You Overlook Ticks

After a walk in the woods, you check yourself for these pests, right? Don't forget about your dog. Tick bites put your furry pal at risk for Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and a handful of other diseases. They can also cause serious illnesses in cats, and put the rest of the family at risk. If you find one, remove it with tweezers, and be careful to get all of the head and not to crush it. Ask your vet about tick control.

 

 

You Don't Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Millions of cats and dogs live on the street or end up euthanized because of unwanted litters. Still, many people are reluctant to spay or neuter their pets. The fact is, it's a healthy choice for an animal. It lowers the risk of breast cancer in females and testicular cancer in males. Neutered males are also less likely to run away from home, mark their territory, or act aggressive. Talk to your vet about the decision to neuter or spay your animal.

You Keep the Food Bowl Full

It's one of the most common mistakes pet owners make. The problem is that cats and dogs often eat more than they need. If food is always available, they'll take in too many calories and put on too much weight. Instead, follow the serving suggestions on the pet food label, or ask your vet for advice.

 

 
You Give Them Too Little Exercise

Just like people, pets need to get moving to stay healthy. Without exercise they're prone to obesity, which raises their risk of respiratory problems and joint trouble. The right amount of exercise for a dog depends on the breed and size, but vets recommend at least a half-hour each day. Bonus: Brisk walks with your buddy can help you get in shape, too.

 

 

and last but not least...

 

 

You Don't Socialize Young Pets

During their first 7 weeks of life, puppies and kittens need to get used to people. So, their humans should build that trust with things like gentle handling and play. Reputable breeders will begin doing this, and you can keep it up when you bring your pet home. To create a strong bond, play with your new puppy or kitten every day.
