    Weekly Topic Inspiration: Raising Healthy Pets

    We have a lot of very good and very dedicated pet owners in our community, and I think y’all have a lot of expertise that can be very well leveraged in Hubs! That’s why I’ve made this week’s WTI topic all about raising healthy pets.

    This week, consider sharing advice on giving your beloved pets- be they dogs, cats, birds, fish, or something else entirely- the best and healthiest lives possible.

    For good keyword-friendly themes and ideas, plus group support, stop by the forum thread!

    I have a diabetic cat who will be turning 14 next month. Dewette is right, I was able to help his blood sugar levels by giving him only canned food. He is also on injected injected insulin, but he is doing well now.
    Fresh water in clean bowls is really important for pets (but my dogs love the toilet lol).

    I had a dog with Epilepsy and while researching what I could do to help him I read that part of the problem could have been the food I was giving him so I moved him to an organic/all natural brand of dog food.

    His epilepsy did not stop, but I, at least felt that I was doing something to help him be healthier in other ways.

    One thing to keep in mind about raising healthy pets is their mental well being. They need to feel safe and loved. They need to know they will be greeted in a friendly manner when family members approach.
    If animals are frightened and chased (other than in a playful manner) they become nervous, agitated, and sometimes aggressive. Some animals, not all. I do not mean to overgeneralize.
    But they need to know that they are wanted. Playing with them, exercising them, talking to them all are ways to let them know they are wanted.
    They need to know that they can depend on you to feed them and to help them stay healthy by seeing their immunizations are kept up to date.
    Training them to follow your expected behaviors should be accomplished in a nonthreatening manner.
    Taking time to show you care lets your animals know they are wanted and important. These factors will help to insure that you are raising a healthy animal.

    Don't buy a pet just because it is Christmas.  Pets should not be regarded as presents to give.  Rather they are a responsibility just as is a child. Pets are often abandoned after Christmas because the responsibility is not wanted. read more

    Since our pets are our "children", we take care of them and look after their welfare like we would a child.  They look up to us to love and care for them.  If we can't make that promise to them, we shouldn't have pets.  It's very important to look after their health.

    I love my cats and the best thing I ever did for my cats was keeping them together.

    In the last year I had to make some personal sacrifices to keep them all together, but I could not imagine what it would have been like for them had I split them up after they had been together their whole lives.

    Some days the food, groomer, and vet bills stress me out, but in the end I know that I did the right thing by them and they give me love back in spades.
