Stop Torturing Your Pets
Even though our pets are the most loyal friends we have, we tend to idealise them like one of us and treat them like another human being. Some people buy a house only for them, dishes and even clothes which is perfect and is part of pampering someone we care about, but there are some thing we shouldn’t do just for the sake of love.
We must take into consideration the advice of a veterinarian when it comes to getting a new pet, their feeding, cleaning and other things that could affect us if we don’t pay enough attention and make their life a living hell.
Food is maybe one of the most risky things. Animal shouldn’t eat what we do and we shouldn’t give them food just because we think it is the correct thing to do. As owners of a living thing we have to be aware that some of the things you give your pet will also affect you and your family because the animal will develop a skin disease that will pass on to any of the people living under the same roof or area.
These are some of the most common food we give our pets, and unintentionally we are not taking into consideration that the cure may be worse than the disease.
Raw meat and raw eggs contain bacteria called Salmonella and E. coli that is harmful to pets and humans. Raw eggs and meat contain a protein that can lead to skin and coat problems. Feeding your pet with bones may seem natural and a common thing to do or even something they could do in the wild which doesn’t mean that is the best for them.
Unless you have a puppy or a kitten, you have to know that adults pets do not possess significant amounts of the enzyme that breaks down lactose in milk therefore any dairy-based products might cause them diarrhoea or other digestive upset resulting in a really bad time for you or whoever the owner is, let alone the cost of a visit to the veterinarian.
Onion, garlic, chives, scallions and some herbs can cause gastrointestinal irritation and lead to blood contamination. Cats are even more susceptible than dogs but they are both at a very high risk of food poisoning to say least.
