Tips For Animal Communication

1. Start With You Own Pet

If you have a pet parrot, for instance, you should start with your pet. This is because you already have a connection with your pet, which will make it easier for you to connect with another animal. Keep an eye on how your pet behaves when he is angry, sad or hungry. This will give you a very good idea of their behaviors.

If you have just bought a pet, you should start by saying good morning to him in the morning when you meet him for the first time.

2. Wait For Their Response

Second, whenever you say something to your pet, wait for them to respond. Don’t just keep on talking. This is just like you talk to a human friend and give them some time to reply. You should give the same opportunity to your animal as well. After all, they do need time to understand you and then give you a reply.

Usually, they will reply you in their own way. It could be a gesture, a whistle or a random word. At times, you may receive an image. After all, we all have different ways of sending, receiving and interpreting the information others give us.

3. Give Proper Responses

While chatting with someone on your phone, you will respond to their messages appropriately. You may give them a reply and start chatting with them or you may tell them that you are busy right now. In the same way, you should “reply” to your new pet as well. Say whatever you want and they will understand it.

If you don’t respond to your friend, they will stop paying attention to you. In the same way, your pet won’t pay attention to you if you stop responding to them. The worst animal communication mistake is to ignore your pet.

Do you feel like your pet has already given up? If so, you can reach out to them to restore the connection once again. You have to make the phone call.

4. Communicate with other animals

As soon as your pet gets familiar with you, you should keep giving time to them. Now, you are ready to communicate with other animals as well. Your pet is your family. You should treat them well. If you are alone, don’t just sit in your home. Sit with your pet and talk to them. Look in their eyes and say whatever you want to say with love. You will enjoy a lot in their company, and they will enjoy themselves too.

Pet Carriers Make Traveling a Breeze

There are two different ways to transport your animal on an airplane and it really is dependent on how big they are. For all large dogs you’ll have to check the animal and they will be stored in the airplane. You’ll need one of the oversized airline approved pet carriers for this. Before the animal will be accepted at check-in you’ll be required to supply your name and address and final destination. This information will be attached to the container holding your pet in case something goes amiss and the animal is separated from your flights.

Many people choose to bring their pets on board as a piece of carry-on luggage. This is really only acceptable if you are using a small dog carrier or a small cat carrier. These must match the dimensions specified by the airline as being appropriate for a carry-on. You’ll want to be able to store it under the seat in front of you as opposed to the overhead storage bins. This helps your four-legged friend feel more relaxed because they know you are close by.

A good rule of thumb to remember when you are looking for one of these handy pet must-haves is that your animal must fit comfortably in it. You can’t try and fit a large dog into a small carrier. The animal has to be able to lie down and it must have enough room for your dog or cat to turn around. All airline approved pet carriers have to accommodate your pet in these ways. If they don’t, you likely won’t be able to bring the pet with you, which will mean a delay in your trip.

We all know how much more convenient it is to travel with luggage that allows for ease of movement. This means you’ll really want to consider airline approved pet carriers that have wheels. This is true regardless if you are buying one for a small, lightweight animal or a very large dog. Your pet will be much more comfortable being pulled in a carrier that has wheels than they would be if you were carrying them. Just imagine how much smoother it will be for them.

Veterinary Hospitals and Pet Owners

The owner gets home and realizes they don’t quite understand the nursing care needed or are not comfortable providing the nursing care their dog or cat needs. At this point the owner calls their veterinary hospital to clarify nursing instructions or asks friends or family to help them. If the owner is still not comfortable providing the care their pet needs then they may decide that it is too much for them and bring their pet back to board at the veterinary hospital for the duration of recovery.

Wouldn’t it be a huge relief if there were a service that provided in-home veterinary nursing care? In-home pet care isn’t a new idea, many pet owners have pet sitters or dog walkers, but in-home veterinary nursing care is a newer idea and such services are relatively rare, but they can be found.

There are many advantages of in-home pet care. Pets are often afraid in unfamiliar environments. The sounds and smells are unfamiliar and can be frightening, especially to cats. With in-home services pets can stay in the comfort of their own homes. This also means that pet’s, and owner’s, routines and schedules are not interrupted. Also, owners do not have to worry about having to transport their cat or dog for boarding or veterinary appointments. Many boarding facilities now offer cage free boarding and group play. This greatly increases the cat or dogs chances of acquiring an illness. This also greatly increases their chance of being injured by another cat or dog.

If veterinary professionals were being honest, especially those working in emergency hospitals, they would tell every pet owner they come across not to take their pets anywhere cage free or with open play. This is because they have seen first hand the horrors that have occurred at such places. These illnesses and injuries can result in death of a pet and severe heart ache for their owners. Lengthy legal battles between owners and boarding facilities have also occurred in these situations. I recommend finding an in-home pet care service the next time a pet owner is in need of a boarding facility or pet care. In-home care will result in a much more comfortable and happy pet and will be much less stress for the owners too.

Euthanize Your Pet or Let Nature Take Its Course

As their owner (I truly dislike this term) you are responsible for them as they are unable to speak and let you know how much pain they are in and this is one of the many challenges you will face when it comes time. My personal opinion is irrelevant as you yourself will see and know when and what to do once the situation starts to deteriorate. If you are looking for some guidelines I have taken the time to put some pointers together for you.

Signs it is time to think about making a decisions

  • Is your pet unable to walk?
  • Is your pet incontinent?
  • Has your pet stopped eating?
  • Has your pet stopped drinking?
  • Is he or she just not themselves?
  • Are they uncomfortable and restless?

These are all the questions you will receive from your Veterinary professional along with others depending on the condition your loved is suffering from. These are the things you need to think about if you are considering euthanasia.

Whether you choose euthanasia or let life take its course is your own personal decision. But my own personal theory is if you can alleviate some suffering, why would you not. Our own selfishness gets in the way sometimes as we know it is the last time we will hold them or see them so we hold on just that little bit longer. If you have the strength to alleviate some of their suffering I believe it is a gift. Being with them whilst they pass is also a gift you can give them, the comfort of your hand and voice as they slip away would I believe have a calming and soothing effect. This also takes strength on our behalf, all this strength is sometimes hard to muster but if we can I think it is our final gift to them.

Once your loved one has passed you may wonder where they go next? You are able to have your pet cremated or buried. This is also a personal choice and one only you and your family can decide. Pet cremation urns are available and some are stunning and there are also some beautiful, peaceful Pet cemeteries that you are able to choose from. This means more decisions for the family to make at a very emotional time, once again on behalf of your loyal and loving fur baby.
