Treat animals as part of a modern family. According to the Humane Society of the United States, pet ownership has more than tripled since the 1970s, resulting in 65% of American households contain at least one pet.
Pet parents are more likely to consider their fur babies health and wellness, providing custom foods, special hygiene treatments, and extreme end of life care.
The physical and mental development of a 16 year old cat is similar to that of an 80 year old person. This animal may become confused, forgetful, incontinent, picky about food, and less active.
Our job is to be there for them as they have been there for us over the years. Having a pet provides a constant companion with whom we can talk, hug, love and receive similar attributes in return. It has been researched that pet owners may have healthier hearts and brain power and dog owners get more exercise.
When we help animals, we help humankind as well.
