How to make a sick animal feel more comfortable

Updated Dec 21, 2021

Ever wonder what you can do to make a sick dog or cat feel better? Animals, like people, just want a few creature comforts around and to know they are loved. In addition to being under veterinary, pets should have clean beds, blankets, and sleeping spaces. Sit with your pets, stroke them, and talk to them throughout the day. Be sure to say their name and remind them how much you love them. Even a sick dog or cat will flick their tail in recognition of your affection, all of which will help to speed up their recovery.
