Is your dog or cat left-handed?
Just like humans, cats and dogs can be either left or right-handed. Did you know that?
Not many people do.
This could be a chance for you to learn more about your pet. Take a toy and see which paw they use to play with it. Do they use one paw more than the other?
As you interact with your pet, you will be building a greater bond and learning more about the animal family member in the process.
Pets are also like humans in other ways besides preferring one hand over the other. Pets need stimulation to be healthy emotionally. They also need exercise for healthy muscles. Good food and water is only a small portion of what everyone needs, including your furry family members.
We all need exercise, proper rest, good food, and water to keep our bodies healthy for a longer life; your pets need the same.
Part of being a responsible pet owner is to insure they get everything they need from food to exercise and emotional stimulation.
At least once a day, weather permitting, your pet should get fresh air, exercise, and dogs should go for walks. Just as humans do, animals should not just sit on the couch and do nothing.
For optimum health and long life, humans and animals need many of the same things. While we are different in some ways, in many ways humans and animals are alike.
Love your pet as you do the rest of your family.
