Make sure your dog is sufficiently walked outside, following government’s guidelines. When walking your dog, practice ‘social distancing’ with other people and animals.
It is important to take the time to interact with them as a means of providing physical activity and to keep them happy and healthy.
As cats age, they become less active than before. Thus, encourage your cat to exercise to maintain healthy body weight, stimulate their mind, and keep reflexes sharp.
Remember that your kitten is doing a lot of growing and developing, which means that he or she will need plenty of sleep at night and daytime naps.
It is important that you they get this done while they are young to avoid dental diseases in the future.
Choose the right dog to introduce to your home, and prepare children for their new puppy’s arrival to ensure that both are happy and safe.
Cats are independent creatures. So whilst they need our care and attention, they also highly value their own space.
If your cat’s ears are facing forward and their eyes are round or squinting, they are likely to be calm and content. If they rub their head or tail against you, it’s a sign that they feel close to you, so you’d be welcome to return their affection.
Ease a cat’s stress and anxiety by minimising their exposure to unpleasant circumstances.
As a start point, however, consider your dog’s size and breed type. Smaller dogs tend to mature to adulthood at between 6 and 12 months old and therefore are able to tolerate increased levels of exercise at an earlier age.
Many pet owners think their cat needs more food than it really does. This means that many cats are overfed; not only can this cause weight gain, but may lead to other health issues.
It is a good idea to consider the general temperament of a breed, as well as its size and energy levels. If you have children with allergies you may also be looking for a hypo-allergenic breed.
