9 Signs You Take Care of Your Pet Wrong But It Can't Complain

  • Published: 02 January 2019
  • Why are so many of our pets overweight? According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 60% of cats and 56% of dogs in the US are obese or overweight. Of course, no pet owner would purposely make such grave mistakes when it comes to feeding their furry friend. Nonetheless, there are several things you should avoid so that your pet will be happy and healthy!

    Do you know, for example, that you should never give your pet human food? A lot of the products we humans eat contain too much salt, sugar, artificial colorants and sweeteners, and fat. All these additives are extremely harmful to pets.

    - While plastic bowls are inexpensive and convenient, they’re not the best for your pet’s health. Both cats and dogs can develop different allergic reactions to plastic. On top of that, some dogs like to chew on their bowl, which means they risk ingesting pieces of plastic.
    - Dogs can develop serious health issues if you let them have avocados, garlic, raisins, chocolate, mushrooms, peaches, or grapes. Most of these products are just as toxic for cats too.
    - If your cat or dog gets treats too often, they’ll lose their appetite for their everyday nutritious meals. This can result in pet obesity.
    - Just like people, dogs and cats should be fed according to their age and lifestyle. Younger animals need to eat more often than older ones since they need more nutrients for proper growth.
    - Dogs especially can't control how much they eat when they see food. Their instincts will scream at them to gobble up everything they find on their plate. This problem is less prominent in felines.
    - Surprisingly, there are those who feed dog food to their cats and vice versa. Interchanging pet foods will lead to serious health complications.
    - Pets, especially dogs, love bones. At the same time, this doesn't mean that you should feed bones to them. It doesn't matter if these bones are from pork, poultry, fish, or beef.
    - Tuna can be used as a treat every now and then. But if you turn it into your cat's everyday diet, this will cause malnutrition. What’s worse, a tuna diet may lead to mercury poisoning.
    - Believe it or not, neither cats nor dogs should be given milk. If, for whatever reason, you have to bottle-feed a newborn pet, you should buy a special formula for puppies and kitties. Cow milk isn't a good substitute for their mom’s milk.

                  People STILL don't know these things?!? Access to information isn't really doing much for our species. You should also mention giving human OTC meds to pets, ibuprofen is absolutely lethal.

                          If it goes out doors then it probably eats elsewhere too such as neighbours or whatever it manages to hunt or scavenge. If its indoor cat only not eating properly you should consult a vet if you think it's ill or give it a routine feeding such as 8am 2pm 8pm. If you are free feeding it for example it eats whenever it want because food is always left out for it then switch it to a timed feeding such as 8am, 2pm and 8pm or try to give it smaller portions.

                              most cats r lactose intollerant. its why u should not give them milk, cream or cheese unless its lactose free.

                              tuna is bad for cats due to the mercury in it. but its also bad for humans for the same reason.

                              avoid giving cats dry food on its own. mix it in with their wet food. their is no nutriants in dry food that cats can get out of it its only good for their teeth and gums.
                              for kittens upto 12 months old the recomendation is 2 pouches of wet food and 30 grams of dry food per day. but that will vary depending on the brand of food u get them as some brands r better than others. some of the expesive cat foods have not got as many nutriants in as the cheaper brands. the cat might like them better but will need to eat a lot more. in a lot of casses ur paying for the brand name not whats actualy in it and the expesive ones can be bad for the cat.
                              as for treats for cats get hairball remidy treats and give them 12 per day to help them digest the fur they get in their stomachs during grooming sessions. that will stop them getting hairballs and vomitting them up.
