Pets are living animals and not toys

Pets shouldn’t be thought of in the same way as a new toy, according to veterinarian Dr. Karen Becker.

“It’s important to impress upon a child the difference between her belongings and her pet, from the very first minute a new dog or cat enters her life,” Dr. Becker wrote.

“Even if your youngster is pleading for a pet and you think he or she is old enough to take on the responsibility, I recommend you keep the ‘pet project’ separate from the holiday festivities.”
