Caring for your pets

Thursday, October 4 is World Animal Day and the Animal Control Centre will mark the occasion with an Open Day focussing on The Nutritional Needs of Your Animals.

It will be held at the Centre’s Black Rock Headquarters and will run from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

In explaining the reason for the theme, Animal Control Officer, Curtis Thompson, pointed out that his officers had noticed that many owners fed an animal the same things over its life span, but young animals, like puppies, had specific dietary requirements.

During the day, a number of veterinarians will be on hand to answer any questions that dog owners, animal lovers, kennel operators and commercial breeders might have and staff of the Centre will highlight the functions of the department and facilitate the licensing process.

There will also be a number of informational booths and products displays from Robert’s Manufacturing, Agrochemicals, Pedigree Dog Food and Pet Express. (BGIS)

    Hello there,

    It is true that pets are wonderful. However, don’t you think that be it a pet or not, asserting ourselves on an animal deprived of the same complex brain that humans have is somewhat, sad? From a certain perspective, does having pets not account to the fact that humans have a tendency to impose themselves on other life forms or even other humans? However, that said, it is true that most of us would melt before the “fluffiness” of a dog or a cat but letting them roam freely with their likes, would it not be more of a gift for them than them waiting to play with “their humans”?

    Regards,
