Dogs, cats and all other pets give us great moments of happiness every day, as well as becoming an integral part of the family. If you are preparing to welcome a new friend, but also if he is already at home with you, make sure you have everything you need available. We have prepared a pet tips guide to explain what the things that you should know are and how to take care of them.
Things to know if you are bringing a pet into your home or apartment
Pets in the apartment
Before opening the doors of your house to an animal, make sure you have all the space you need in the house. In particular, if you live in an apartment, we recommend that you first check the condominium regulations. According to law, it is no longer possible to prohibit keeping a pet in the apartment, except in specific cases, such as lack of hygiene and animal health problems. However, the possibility remains of the condominium to oppose exotic animals, such as Hedgehogs, sugar gliders, and Skunks.
Pets in the home
If you are moving to a new home, to avoid small and large disasters, we advise you never to leave your pet alone during the first few days. The transfer could confuse him, leading him to harm himself or damage furniture, floors, doors, and much more.
If you have a dog, cat, or rabbit, a simple trick to help them settle in is to leave a game or something to chew on. Do not scold them, and do not scream. Let them take steps to the new home gradually and prepare to be patient and remedy some trouble.
4 tips to take care of pets at home
If you think you can't manage a dog or cat, you can also opt for other types of pets that require less effort. Discover the most loved ones and immediately start making room in the house, not before having carefully thought about your choice. Every living being, even the smallest, has the right to a dignified life and to all necessary care, from the veterinarian to tailor-made nutrition.
⦁ Fish: the aquarium is beautiful to look at and relaxes. Choosing little fish is the first step in taking care of a pet.
⦁ Hamsters: small and tender, these rodents need a small cage and adapt well to life at home. Being nocturnal animals, they prefer to play at night and do not like to share their space with other rivals.
⦁ Rabbits: perhaps not everyone knows that they can be handled almost like cats. They do their needs in the box and easily get used to being with you at home.
⦁ Turtles: aquatic or terrestrial, as long as they are authorized species to be kept at home, many turtles like children and manage them easily.
Pet Tips: How to make your home pet-friendly
If the great time has come and you're about to bring a dog, cat, or other animal homes, make sure everything is pet-proof.
⦁ There are no precise indications for the space available but always try to guarantee a dignified life for your pet.
⦁ Put a doghouse or a dedicated area available to your new friend. The same applies to the cages and aquariums, which must always be sufficiently capacious and of quality.
⦁ Beware of escape routes, such as doors and windows, but also of stairs, which could put puppies in difficulty.
⦁ Do not leave food, garbage, plants, and toxic substances in inaccessible places.
⦁ Clean and disinfect carefully, using detergents with fragrances that do not bother your pets.
