Animal Care & Pets

Books on breeds, feeding, housing, and health care for livestock and pets

Parents rightly pay attention to their kids’ relationships with peers, teachers, siblings and other important figures in their lives. But another meaningful bond is children’s connection with animals.

Kids respond to cute animals, which means adults do too – and that means putting their hands in their pockets and forking out for the books. Another reason animals prove popular is the potential for humour. Kids love anything that makes them giggle, and adults are happy to pay to hear that sound.

How to Be Animal tells a remarkable story of what it means to be human and argues that at the heart of our existence is a profound struggle with being animal. We possess a psychology that seeks separation between humanity and the rest of nature, and we have invented grand ideologies to magnify this.

The motive may be to shock, threaten, intimidate or offend others or to demonstrate rejection of society's rules. Some who are cruel to animals copy acts they have seen or that have been done to them. Others see harming an animal as a safe way to get revenge against—or threaten—someone who cares about that animal.

Never has society been so aware of animal welfare, and never have pet parents loved their companions more. A collective desire to learn more about the animals in our care has driven a demand for high-quality, heavily-researched books. Publishers have sought out experts and scientific studies to build books that provide complete, accurate information presented in a way that’s easy for anyone to understand.

Bringing a new pet into your house can be as intimidating as it is exciting. Even if you already have an animal or two at home, taking care of animals often comes along with plenty of questions.

As pet owners, we all want the best for our smallest and sometimes, furriest family members. It is important for every pet parent caring for animals that they are getting everything they need to be happy and healthy pets. Taking care of animals is more than just making sure their bowl is full or that the dog is walked, and the litter box is scooped.

Here are a few tips for taking care of animals, focusing on the most common household pets. Whether you’re becoming a first-time pet owner or have had multiple animal companions, this guide can help your new family member feel right at home.

Before you bring home your pet, be sure you’re ready. Here are a few considerations to think about as you prepare to bring a loved pet into your life:

  • Select a pet that is suited to your home and lifestyle and avoid impulsive decisions.
  • Recognize that owning a pet(s) requires an investment of time and money.
  • Keep only the type and number of pets for which you can provide an appropriate and safe environment. This includes appropriate food, water, shelter, health care, and companionship.
  • Ensure your pet is properly identified (i.e., tags, microchips, or tattoos) and that their registration information in associated databases is kept up to date.
  • Be knowledgeable of and adhere to local ordinances, including licensing and leash requirements.
  • Provide preventive (e.g., vaccinations, parasite control) health care for the life of your pet(s).
  • Socialize your pet to facilitate their well-being and the well-being of other animals and people. If needed, provide additional training.
  • Provide exercise and mental stimulation appropriate to your pet(s)' age, breed, and health status.
  • Include your pets in your planning for an emergency or disaster, including assembling an evacuation kit.
  • Plan for the care of your pet when or if you are unable to do so.
