Pets are for life – a good reminder at Christmas
Christmas is always a good time to discuss pet ownership and remember that pets are for life and not just a cute Christmas present. The Christmas period can be a suitable time to think about getting a new pet, as you and your family may be around the house more to bond with a new furry family member and help them settle in. But it’s also a good time to think about where you should get a pet from and adopting a rescue pet is ALWAYS a good idea.
Rescue animals make great pets and some people believe that these animals secretly know they have been given a second chance! Adult rescues make extra special companions – they are generally toilet trained and can be a bit calmer and wiser than a new puppy or kitten!
Whatever you chose, remember that a pet is for life and you need to ask yourself if you have the ability to take on the responsibility for potentially 15 plus years. Who will care for the pet when you go away? Are you able to provide appropriate health care for the pet and is the pet suitable for your lifestyle? We can help you make an informed decision so ask us if you have any questions.
