Get Inspired To Celebrate A Senior Pet Month
Count the Benefits A Senior Pet Can Bring Into Your Life!
We applaud the families, individuals and companies who support one of the gracious and important missions – adoption of a senior pet. Hill’s® Science Diet® is one of the companies that actively participates in the well-being and vitality of our pets by providing the food, the snacks, tips and education, and other invaluable support to care for our dogs and cats.
There are thousands of senior pets awaiting their happy – and in many cases lucky – moment to be adopted into a forever family. If we could look at both sides of the equation – age and benefits of it – we could count many blessings an older, senior, pet could bring into our lives.
Usually older pets are much settled in their habits and their behaviors and could develop a very tight bond with you. These pets may want to spend more time by you or time alone napping or watching the outside world happening in front of their eyes. For many people such pets could create some powerful benefits in an emotional well-being.
November, being a month of Senior Pet Adoption Awareness, let’s get count some awesome benefits of welcoming a senior pet into our lives. Do keep in mind that these pets could be a blessing and devoted companions to any age or abilities group of humans: older parents, young children, people with different abilities and needs. What we need to know is the following:
Like with anything else in life, we need to educate ourselves about any novelty topic and support it with facts and experiences from others.
Senior pets can transform our lives by offering a myriad of benefits. These benefits can be easily applied to the needs of a human family and matched to a pet that would be a perfect companion in life.
Look At the Benefits In Adopting A Senior Pet
Senior pets have manners and are less destructive
Senior dogs and cats are more mellow and look into more time spent with you petting them. Parents will get less frustration with an older pet rather than starting a new training and learning cycle with a new puppy or kitten. One thing to keep in mind though: those pets that have been through multiple homes and have been poorly trained may present a challenge at least in the beginning. Getting support of your pet online communities could be a way to look for help and invaluable instructions how to handle this situation.
You can teach an old dog or cat new tricks
First and foremost, most of senior pets already know their commands and come with the experience of life. Either a dog or a cat would respond to their new environment better when you could establish a routine for them. Try feed, walk, play, exercise them on a schedule which would help your senior pets to get accustomed to a new life dynamic. You could be surprised how responsive these senior pets would be!
Senior Pets Can Greatly Benefit from Companionship with You – FACT
Senior pets are awesome with kids and senior people
Kids will be delighted how patient senior pets are! These pets will spend time by their little masters and bask in their attention. Those kids with special needs would be especially pleased to find a devoted friend in a senior dog or cat.
An older cat or dog could be a life savior for senior people. As the lives of these both groups – pets and people – are very much a scheduled routine, it would be a blessing to have a pet who responds to such life dynamic eagerly.
Both of the above groups – kids and seniors – would receive companions who would bond with them forever. A senior pet temperament is what you see when you visit with it for the first time. No surprises later, yet a ton of benefits for all involved.
