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.
New To Our Practice?
It's so nice to walk in and have the staff know you and your pets. We moved our two old pups from Banfield (had used amigo for saying goodbye to our military working fog, and for Our new adopted shelter dogs), and I'm glad I did. Amigo takes the time to help you file insurance paperwork and to get to know your pets. They realize they are more than just a $$ sign, they are a family member.
