Pets HQ Online: How Pet Care Is Mental Health Care

Pets HQ Online, a website that offers advice caring for a variety of pets, has set out to inform its readers of the ways in which pets can help with mental health. Small animal pets, such as dogs, fish or cats, have the ability to significantly improve the mental health of their owners by providing them with emotional support. Pets are valued for their ability to provide unconditional love to their owners, which offers a large boost to the owner’s mental health and positive emotional state. Pets HQ Online recommends choosing the right pet, however, and has articles that describe the advantages and drawbacks of each choice.

One of the pets recommended by Pets HQ Online is a small rabbit. “It is not uncommon for people to spend countless hours looking for the perfect pet,” says Pets HQ Online. “Whether it’s a cat, dog, fish or bird — sometimes that perfect pet is hard to find. For those who are passionate about animals and don’t want any harm to come to them, consider adopting a rabbit as your next furry best friend! Rabbits can make wonderful pets because they’re low maintenance (just like cats!) and have interesting personalities.”

There are a number of aspects that aspiring rabbit owners should keep in mind when considering getting one. Firstly, rabbits need an average of 2-3 hours of attention every day, which means they are not the right pet for people who spend their days away from home at work or at similarly lengthy obligations. Secondly, rabbits require a cage that covers at least 4-6 sq ft of floor space (with a bottom lined with 3” of paper bedding). This cage must be cleaned every week and relined. Rabbits are prey animals by nature which means they usually take a long while to get used to their new owners. Daily interaction is important so that they do not become too stressed, but after a while they usually become less skittish. Read more about owning a rabbit on Pets HQ Online.

Dogs are perhaps the most popular choice for a pet, and Pets HQ Online has a number of articles that explain how to take care of a dog properly. One of their articles is titled ‘Planning a Proper Diet For Your Dog,’ and it explains the best way to ensure one’s dog is happy and healthy through proper nutrition. Dog care is easier when the owner is prepared.

The article says, “It is important to feed your dog a diet that is appropriate for its age, weight and activity level. Dogs of all ages will eat the same type of food as puppies, but they should be fed more slowly as they get older. The best thing you can do for your dog is to provide them with a healthy diet that promotes good quality of life and protects against many diseases.”

Pets HQ Online also has advice to offer owners of aquatic pets. In ‘The Basics of Goldfish Care: How To Take Care Of Your Goldfish,’ they explain what to do — and not to do — with Goldfish. Like any other pet, goldfish require specific conditions in order to thrive. The basic setup for a single common goldfish costs around $50 (with aquarium and filtration setups costing as much as several hundred dollars). The reason many people choose goldfish is the fact that they are easy to care for which makes them an excellent choice for those who do not have a lot of experience with fish care.
