Here’s a list of 7 things your furry friend might want you to know if they could speak like we do:
- Knowing how to administer CPR could save your pet’s life one day. Hopefully you will never need it but knowing how to perform CPR can make all the difference in the world. Classes are available in many places including through the Red Cross. Talk to your vet for details.
- I love a clean water bowl. Your dog can find the taste of a dirty water dish pretty unappealing, which is why it is generally a good idea to wash it out once a week and through a dishwasher if possible. Fido also prefers stainless steel dishes to plastic.
- I wouldn’t mind a daily vitamin. Keep your dog feeling his best by providing him with a high-quality nutritional supplement. Keeping Fido happy by having more energy and a beautiful coat.
- I would be happy if you had a fully stocked first aid kit just for me. Gauze, milk of magnesia, a tick remover, bandages, thermometer, and a muzzle are just a few things you may want to include.
- I’ve got great hearing. Yelling really loudly is not necessary because dogs generally have excellent hearing and chances are he can hear you just fine.
- I have sensitive feet. The pads on your pup’s feet can be quite sensitive, which is why you should be aware at all time of the surface your pup is walking on as well as the temperature. When it is too hot or too cold your pup’s feet can suffer for it. Dog booties can help.
- I understand empathy. Believe it or not, if you are feeling blue chances are your dog knows it and doesn’t like it. Dogs are extremely sensitive to changes and shifts in the moods of their humans. This doesn’t mean you can’t be unhappy but don’t be surprised if your pup is acting sad right along with you.
