Bringing home a new pet means a lot of responsibilities. Before making a decision, it is imperative to do thorough research about the basic husbandry and other essential daily routines.
The problem with most people today is they get a new puppy or kitten without doing any research about them. As a result, these animals get sick or abandoned by their owners. If a client says he or she is ready to become a pet owner, give them the following reminders:
Find a Reliable Veterinarian
The first thing they need to do is find a licensed veterinarian. It would be risky to get a new pet without a clinic nearby, particularly for breeds with special needs. If they’re having problems with choosing a reliable pet clinic, they must do more research about their credentials.
They might also want to check out the veterinary promotional products provided by veterinary practices. They could ask their family and friends for recommendations as well.
Give the Right Nutrition
The next step is to ensure that they’re providing the right nutrition for their pets. Remind them that they can’t just go to a local store and get the pet food randomly. This is one of the reasons most dogs or cats get skin problems. Choosing the right food and supplements for pets is important to prevent allergies and malnutrition. Tell them to ask you for recommendations.
Provide a Decent Shelter
Another important reminder is to have an adequate space for the new pet. As much as possible, they should avoid putting the animals in crates or cages with limited room to play around. A good shelter is important to their wellness, mood, and growth. The space should also have proper ventilation and temperature.
Having a pet is a big responsibility. Teach your clients how to take good care of their furry friends to avoid the devastating experience of losing one due to carelessness.
