Are You A Responsible Fur-Parent?

Having a dog or a cat might not seem like a big responsibility, but there’s more it. You have to feed, bathe, cuddle, play with your pet, and so much more! It is pretty much like having a kid.

We know all fur parents want what’s best for their pets. So, aside from giving your pets their basic needs, let’s review some fur-parenting tips you should remember to take care of your fur-baby.

1. Feeding your fur-baby optimal nutrition

When we eat healthy and nutritious food, we look and feel better, which should be the same for our fur babies.

Not all human foods are safe for pets. These foods can be harmful and may lead to health issues. That’s why a responsible fur-parent should ask a vet what type of food and how much is right for her pet.

2. Socialize your pets

Pets are social by nature, and spending their days isolated and unchallenged are likely to make them unhappy. Spend quality time with your dogs and cats and take the time to bring them outside to meet new people and fur-friends. The better socialized they are, the happier they will be.

Responsible fur-parents would never be afraid to expose their fur babies to other animals, people, and new environments. How? By giving them the proper protection. Ask your veterinarian how to protect your fur-babies against ticks, fleas, and other parasites.

3. Playtime with your fur-baby

An active pet is a happy pet! Aside from socializing, your fur-baby needs to release its energy and strengthen its body through playtime. Playtime can also enhance your relationship with them and improve their mental health.

Take time each day to exercise and play with them as playtime allows them to be mentally stimulated and physically challenged. Being with you is the best part of their day, and giving them that extra attention would show how much you love them. 

 4. Protect your fur-baby

Keeping your pet healthy is an essential part of responsible pet parenting. Besides making sure that your cat or your dog eats the proper food, you can protect your pet by bringing your fur baby to your veterinarian regularly.

Some medical conditions can be unnoticeable, and you may think that your dog or cat seems perfectly healthy. With a routine check-up, the veterinarian can easily spot diseases or underlying medical conditions.

Your vet can also tell you the best treatment and the right medicine for your pet. There are different varieties of treatments that you can give based on your pet’s needs, size, and more. Read more about possible treatments that can provide long-lasting protection for your fur baby at and discuss it with your vet.

Like real parents, being a fur mom or fur dad can be both enjoyable and tiring. There will be many learnings, but despite the short life our fur-babies have, we give them anything we can for them to live in full. Because having a dog or a cat to shower you with love makes life worth living.

    We have a pet dog in our house and i”m responsible in taking care of it. I believe that its not easy having a pet because there are things and parenting tips to be considered. I believe also taking care of pets is one way of teaching our kids to be responsible , loving and empathetic. I want to show to them that animals need love and care too .

    Fur babies are already part of our family! Let us treat them like how we treat our kids. Let’s show them love and support! Let’s be compassionate to them. Because like us, they have feelings too.
