Posted October 01, 2018 07:02:00 There’s a reason why it’s easy to go to a shelter if you’re scared or angry or just feel stressed.
When it comes to your pet, it can be hard to say no.
Here are some tips to help you make a decision.
Do you need to talk?
It’s important to talk to your vet and pet-owner about your situation.
But it’s also important to make sure that your pet is okay.
“When people say they don’t want to have a conversation with their pet, that’s when you want to get help,” says Pet Care Ontario veterinarian Dr. Kristine Avila.
“There’s a lot of stress and anxiety around that.”
If your pet doesn’t want a conversation, Avilas recommends you find someone who knows your pet well and has the patience to listen to your concerns.
It’s also helpful to tell the person you’re talking to about the reasons for their decision to leave, and to ask if they’re OK with that.
And if the person tells you they’re okay, ask if that person wants to talk about it.
Avilac’s advice for anyone considering leaving your pet at home: Make sure you and your pet have a good relationship and communicate regularly.
Make sure your pet has access to a safe place to be.
Get in touch with your vet.
Get information about your pet’s health, health care and vaccinations.
Don’t leave your pet with anyone who isn’t a trusted family member or close friend.
Get your pet to a pet clinic and get tested if your pet isn’t getting vaccinated.
If your animal isn’t feeling well, your vet may be able to prescribe an injection or medication to help.
If you don’t feel comfortable giving your pet medication, you can try taking your pet for a walk or on a leash.
A good dog trainer can also help with that process.
The same goes for cats.
Get them vaccinated and vaccinated their owners.
Get a good social worker to help out.
Have your pet spayed or neutered.
If they’re still feeling ill, ask your vet for a referral to a veterinarian who has experience with that kind of situation.
If that person isn’t available, a shelter or animal shelter may be a better option.
When should you leave your furry friend?
“The sooner you get out of the house and get a good dog-owner, the better,” says Aviles.
“If your pet needs you, your friend, your family, it’s going to be OK.”
The same can’t be said for a dog who has to go on a break and a pet sitter.
“That’s not a good situation,” says veterinarian Dr, Kristine Alexander.
“It’s a huge stress for a pet to go without their family.”
Avilases advice for any situation where your furry buddy is a dog: Keep your furry dog in a home with a safe environment.
Keep your pet on a walkable leash.
Avoid leaving your furry friends with people who aren’t trusted or who aren
