How Much Food Should You Give To Your Pet
For dogs follow the following guideline. You want your dog to be in fine condition but not overweight.
--> Puppies eight to 12 weeks old need four meals a day.
--> Feed puppies three to six months old three meals a day.
--> Feed puppies six months to one year two meals a day.
--> When your dog reaches his first birthday, one meal a day is usually enough.
--> For some dogs, including larger canines or those prone to bloat, it's better to feed two smaller meals.
Seek to feed them with premium-quality dog food for a sensible diet. You should incorporate among meals.
Ensure that you give food to your puppies with good quality, brand-name food and keep "human food" at the absolute minimum. We actually don't think about this and feel sorry for the dogs begging to get a bite of your food. But feeding your pets with human food might cause vitamin and mineral imbalances as well as bone troubles and teeth problems. Worst scenario, they get picky eating habits to food that will make them too heavy.
No human food will be best and of course make sure they have fresh water on their bowls. You also want to make sure their feeding and water bowls are clean all the time.
For any other pets like cats, lizards, fish etc, following the feeding instructions on the food label will provide you with the right quantities.
Exercise Sessions For Overall Health
As a way for pets to keep healthy they need plenty of exercise. Exercises will burn fat as calories are burnt and will stimulate their brains. Keeping them moving with activities like fetching will also avoid boredom. You don't want your dog to get bored, that's when they could develop some destructive habits, like chewing your shoes for example. Keeping them active with fun games will prevent the dog from doing what dogs usually do: digging, herding, chewing, chasing etc.
Clean pet, clean house! Frequent brushing will be needed to reduce shedding and will keep them free of unwanted material and pests. Fleas and ticks are a pain, specially in the summer. Make sure you do their flea treatment monthly. Frontline is a product that is safe and works great for fleas and ticks.
Pets don't need frequent bathing, maybe 3 times a year should be enough for a dog. But when you do, make sure you comb and cut off hairballs from their coat. Rinse all soap thoroughly. Then dry with towel or hair dryer.
How To Handle Your Pet
People love to carry up dogs and cats. You must be very careful how you do it so you wont injure the pet. The right technique is to always grab them from the chest and a support arm under back legs then lift. Avoid lifting by the forelegs, tail or back of the neck. No matter what size of pet it is use this technique at all times.
Providing Resting Housing
Exactly the same way you sleep and rest in a peaceful environment, without any debris and clear of drafts, your pet also needs a warm quiet spot to rest. Pet beds are ideal with pillows and blankets. Bedding material should be washed frequently. For dogs that live strictly outside, make sure they have a shady area and lots of water in summer and a warm shelter when in cold weather. Care the same with other pets that reside in the yard.
Licensing and Identification
Your community has probably regulations you must abide and most likely they will ask for cats and dogs license. Comply and make sure to attach the license to the pet's collar. ID tags, implanted microchips or tattoos will help recognize your dogs in case of a tragedy or disappearance.
Fleas and Ticks Care
Generally during the summer time is where this fleas and ticks are proactive pestering your dog and other pets. Inspect your dogs an other pets while brushing. Using a flea comb is practical. There are remedies available for fleas. You may want to talk to your vet on best options. Frontline products proved helpful for me.
Handling Medicines and Poisons
This is important for the pet safety. Never give a pet anything that has not been prescribed by your vet. If by any chance you are noticing something your pet ate is causing a problem call a veterinarian immediately or call ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center for 24-hour animal poison information at (888) 426- 4435.
Necessity of there are additional vaccinations required to conserve a healthy life. Exactly the same way we get vaccinated against polio, chicken pots, etc your pets also need them. Plan a health check up with your pet and discuss a plan for you furry friend.
