Pets aren't the only ones who need a little (or a lot) of help adjusting to life with a newborn. No matter how much you plan ahead, the addition of a new family member may be difficult for your pet. Remember, your dog or cat was your first "baby" and is used to being the center of your attention. So it's understandable that he may experience something akin to sibling rivalry when you introduce a new human baby into your home. You can help your pet cope with this big change in the same way parents help children understand that a new brother or sister will be joining the family. The following tips below will help ease you pets' stress, help welcome your new baby, and ensure that you pet stays where he belongs- with you and your growing family.
With proper training, supervision, and adjustments, you, your new baby, and your pet should be able to live together safely and happily as one (now larger) family.
We recently moved to the area and needed a vet for our black lab. I asked a neighbor where he took his dog and he said Healthy Paws! I gave them a call and had a good 30 minute conversation with a very sweet, patient and knowledgeable lady! I dropped my lab off the next morning and picked her back up around 3:00. Everyone was so kind and professional! My dog was so "pretty" and "happy!" The clinic called me around 10:00 the following day to check on my lab! I am thrilled to say I have finally found a vet for our sweet girl!
