For many of us in the Fox Valley our exotic parrots are part
of our family.With proper care, some
live for decades and bring joy to a household through generations.Not only that, but they are not cheap!Buying the right bird to suit your home is an
important decision…properly caring for it is even more important.
If you are ready for an extended vacation, you may have some
guilt about leaving your beloved parrot(s) for an extended period.Maybe you’re afraid that your baby will be
traumatized.Perhaps you are convinced
that you are the only person on earth who can properly care for them.Or, just maybe you are worried that they
won’t forgive you.
They are very much like humans with feathers and if you need
to leave your Southern Fox Valley home for a few days or more someone who is
trained in the care and feeding of exotic birds should be looking in on
them.The answer is Sandy and her
amazing team of pet lovers at Critter Sitters.Give her a call for a free in-home visit at (630) 844-9554.
Just what is the proper method and time as well as frequency
to walk your dog?There is a right way
to walk your dog.Your pooch should
either walk beside you or behind you, never in front of you. You should walk
your dog, not the other way around.It
means a great deal in your dog's world.When you let a dog walk in front of you, you're communicating that he's
the one who is in charge of the walk.
How long a walk does your dog need, anyway?Twenty minutes is a good amount of time to
aim for most dogs—even seniors, if they’re in good health.If your dog is very active, he may need
longer, more vigorous walks, maybe even two or more times a day.Or try slow, short jogs to get your active
Proper dog walking is an art.It is one that has been mastered by the pet
care professionals at Critter Sitters.Twelve months a year a Critter Sitters loving pro is excited to walk
your dog…puppy or senior or in between.Call Sandy at Critter Sitters serving the Southern Fox Valley of Western
Chicagoland for an in-home visit at (630) 844-9554.
For some of us in the Fox Valley this is just too much to
ask.The good news is our pets are
living longer.The bad news (as with
humans) they are subject to more of the illnesses associated with old age.The best news is that there is a team of
caring, loving pet sitters that know how to administer shots to your best friends.
Have you ever Googled “how to give your dog a shot”?It is a bit of an eye-opener.It tells you to lift the skin above the
shoulder.It then says to insert the
needle beneath the skin and pull back slightly on the plunger.If you see blood returning through the
plunger then pull the needle out immediately.All of this assumes that you have a willing patient!
One of the alternatives is to bring on Critter Sitters
serving Aurora, Sugar Grove, Elburn and the surrounding area of Chicagoland’s
Fox Valley.You not only get the best
pet sitters in the area, but you also are hiring some of the best pet care
experts anywhere in Chicago.Give Sandy
a call at Critter Sitters.That phone
number is (630) 844-9554.
