If you’re like most pet owners, you try to give your four-legged friend the best life you can by providing nutritious food, warm shelter, veterinary care, and of course lots of love and affection. With all that pet owners have to think about, the type of bed our pets sleep on may not necessarily top the list of concerns; but when we consider that the average dog sleeps 12-14 hours a day it can suddenly seem like a more pressing issue.
A pet’s sleeping spot is more than just a comfortable place to get some shut-eye; it’s his or her own personal area of the house. Deciding on a pet bed doesn’t have to be complicated, but there are some factors to consider.
Keeping your dog clean and groomed is one of the most basic pet care responsibilities. Besides helping your pet look and feel their best, regular grooming provides you with the opportunity to give your dog a once-over, checking for lumps, bumps, ticks, matted fur, and other abnormalities.
Because each dog breed is a combination of the many dogs that make up its ancestry, including certain predominant skin and coat characteristics, breed specific grooming should be taken into consideration.
Stereotyping animal breeds is no different than stereotyping people. Pitbulls aren’t necessarily vicious creatures and not all toy poodles are purse dogs. There are definitely breed predispositions, though, that pet owners should be aware of, though. This is especially true if you are set on adding a certain breed to your family. So read on for more about pet breed issues that could affect you.
Schertz Animal Hospital thinks it’s important for animal lovers everywhere to recognize which breeds may be at higher risk for certain issues. After all, knowledge is power.
