Bringing a pet into your family can be one of the best decisions you ever make. Pets can bring so much love and warmth to your home. However, you do need to be careful when bringing a pet into your home. Your pet relies on you for love, attention, care, shelter, and food, so you need to do your best for them. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the common mistakes pet owners make so that you can avoid making them.

  • Purchasing from any old pet store - There is only one place to begin, and this is by failing to consider your choice of pet store carefully. We have a tendency to assume that all pet stores are the same, but this is simply not the case. You want to make sure that your pet enjoys food and products of the highest standard. Because of this, we would recommend you look for a holistic pet store that sells natural products.
  • Not training your pet early - Training your pet early is important. If you leave it until your pet is older, your pet will have already developed bad habits. This will make it incredibly difficult for you to undo these bad habits. It is also important to make sure that you are consistent when it comes to training your pet. Otherwise, your pet is only going to end up getting confused.
  • Overlooking the suitability of the pet for your family - Aside from the errors that we have seen so far, another common mistake that a lot of pet owners make is overlooking whether or not the animal in question is going to be right for their family. Simply picking a pet because it is cute is not a good enough reason. You need to make sure that your lifestyle will be right for the pet, ensuring they get the care and attention they require. 
  • Cutting matted hair - Last but not least, one of the most common mistakes that we see pet owners make is cutting hair that has become thickly matted. Mats are difficult to comb out or brush, so often pet owners will decide to take matters into their own hands, cutting the mat out with scissors. This is an error. The reason for this is because it is very hard to figure out where the mat ends and the ear begins, meaning it is easy for you to end up cutting your cat or dog’s ear, which is the last thing you want. 

So there you have it: some of the different blunders that we see pet owners make. We hope that this helps to steer you in the right direction when it comes to purchasing a pet and looking after them properly. If you have any questions about your pet, the best thing to do is to get in touch with your vet and they will be able to help you and point you in the right direction.

  2. Aww Kary what a great event to attend. I do love looking at puppies and kittens in the pet store but I would prefer to buy from a breeder or rescue one :)
