Your Pet: A Companion and Friend

Describe your pet,pet care,about your pet, best pet

Do you know how much difference a pet can make in your life? If you have been feeling recently, as all of us have at some time or other, strained, depressed or as if you would like some companionship, getting a pet might be the answer. When you feel as if no one connects with you, and is if you are all alone in the world, getting a pet who will love you unconditionally can do wonders for the way you feel.

Many people find life empty – loneliness can overwhelm us, if we live alone, and feel the lack of human companionship. One needs company if one is to be in a well balanced state of mind. A pet can make all the difference here – all you need to give it in return is food, shelter and plenty of love. And you will see the amazing difference a pet can make to you and how much it will add to your mental and emotional well-being.

The Proof

The proof of how much a pet can do for a person is everywhere. You have seen guide dogs leading visually impaired people, you have heard of the therapeutic advantages of a pet for a child who is ill, or an older person who is lonely. Doctors recognize that an animal can do wonders as far as the health and mood of an ill person is concerned.

In fact, studies conducted not long ago indicate that this is true. A medical researcher from the State University of New York, Dr. Karen Allen, studied several stockbrokers who were under stress every day. She found that those without pets showed much higher levels of stress than those with them. So it is clear that having a pet affects you positively.

A Pet would Really Suit…

Before you get inspired by the thought of how much love and companionship a pet can give you, think carefully whether a pet would suit you since this is not a commitment you should enter into lightly, and you may find that, realistically, it wouldn’t work out for you to have a pet.

But there are some people who would really benefit from having a pet. A person who spends a lot of time alone at home, for instance, would find that a pet makes a lot of difference. Someone who is subject to a lot of pressure at work will also find it easy and pleasant to unwind with a pet. And if you are feeling down for some reason, whether it’s a failed relationship or instability in your life, a pet can make you feel a whole lot better about things, and give you the confidence to deal with problems cheerfully.

What Are the Advantages of Owning a Pet?

You may find that the scenarios we have talked about here apply to you to some extent, but you aren’t completely convinced that you are ready to take a pet home. In that case, look at all the advantages that having a pet offers:

Loving Companionship

A pet is always there for you. Your responsibilities include providing food, shelter and adequate exercise, and your pet will give you loads of love in exchange. Loyalty, companionship and utter love will be yours when you have a pet in your home.

A Pet Keeps You Distracted From Worries

When you are stressed or tense, spending time with your pet can be enormously relaxing. Refreshed, you can return to whatever is worrying you, and could well find a way out, in a relaxed frame of mind.

A Pet Adds Meaning to Your Life

Looking after an animal, sharing love and companionship can all help add meaning to your life. It’s like being a parent. You are responsible for another living being, and the fact that you are loved and needed will bring more depth to the way you live.

A Pet Gives You A Chance to Express Yourself

Let your feelings out, tell your dog what your day was like, talk about your dreams – you will find it feels good to express yourself and get undivided attention – and your pet will enjoy the attention he or she is getting, too!

A Pet Offers A healthier Lifestyle

Exercising your pet often forces you to exercise too. This will be excellent for your mental and physical well being

Other Aspects to Consider

And finally, before you decide that you do want a pet, and all the wonderful benefits owning a pet will bring you, think about whether you can afford a pet, whether your residence regulations allow you to keep a pet and what size of pet and what kind of animal would be comfortable where you live. For instance a large dog is not the ideal pet for a small apartment, and it would be cruel to the animal to force it to stay in an inadequately sized area, so think about fish or other small pets if you have space constraints. Think about all these aspects before it is too late, and before you make a decision both you and the animal might have cause to regret.

We cannot state too many times that you shouldn’t take a pet home without considering the matter carefully from all angles. Since you are making a commitment to a living being, it is a serious decision, and you must be sure before you take it..
