While owning pets can be a wonderful life experience for many, the growing pet trade in Malaysia (or around the world as a matter of fact) has given rise to various complications. Whatever it is, pet or no pet, the fact remains that dogs, cats and any type of other wildlife are all living creatures; thus should be treated with love and respect.
Responsible Pet Ownership
Cats and Dogs can live up to 15, 20 years with us, so know that owning a pet is a long term commitment. While any animal lover would tell you for a fact that animals do have feelings, for those who are unconvinced, there is growing scientific evidence that animals are capable of experiencing emotions, very much like how we can.
Whenever you plan to get a new pet, ask if you are able of giving it a proper and loving home. Depending on the breed, age and inherent physical characteristic of the do, it is sufficient to say that each pet’s needs are different, and all pet owners should be aware of that to provide the optimal living conditions for the animal.
For instance, medium to large dog breeds would require a large home compound for them to roam in. If you live in a condo, you might want to consider smaller dog breeds. Dogs also needs to be walked at least once a day to maintain good mental and physical health.
Regardless of the type of pet you wish to have, be sure to do all the necessary research and preparations before you welcome it into your home.
