Did You Know?
Part of our mission at The Critters & Me is to educate pet owners in ways to enrich and prolong their pets’ lives. Our pets can’t pick up the phone and call the vet, so they are dependent upon us for their overall welfare. And the best way for us to meet the anticipated and unanticipated needs of our pets is to educate ourselves. Because English is not the first language of most critters, it is necessary for us to pay attention, be observant and learn the meaning of specific behaviors and health issues. Educating ourselves about our animals’ needs is surely as important as basic behavioral training for our pets. In fact, many trainers point out that it is as important to train the pet owner’s as it is to train the pet and sometimes more difficult.
In this “Did You Know” section of the website we will post useful information on feeding, care of minor ailments, research and interesting pet related articles. Our bricks and mortar store has become a lively resource where pet owners can share experience and information. We hope that this section of the website will expand that information sharing and educational function and be a valuable resource for all pet owners. Please let us know when you find something useful or have additional information to share.
