With Thanksgiving nearly upon us, many of us are reflecting on all we have to be thankful for this holiday season.  For many of us pet owners, the love and affection of our pets are chief among the list.  Regardless of the reason why we have pets in our life (companion animals, service animals, and working pets) the human-animal bond is certainly something to be thankful for and one that we must pause to give some thought to.

Below are just a handful of reasons why our staff is thankful for our pets:

Pets always know how to put smiles on our faces! Their crazy habits and strange mannerisms certainly know how to leave us laughing out loud.

They always seem to be happy to have us home and go above and beyond to show us how they missed us!

My pet knows how to keep me motivated…even brings me the leash sometimes to let me know it’s time for some fresh air and exercise!

My pet knows how to get me to rise and shine in the mornings…I’m pretty certain that I won’t have much use for an alarm clock anymore.

Pets just know us…they know our moods: how to console us when sad, how to celebrate with us when we’re happy, and they are unconditional in their love (we don’t even have to ask!).

Whatever your reasons are for being thankful for your pets, we at Morena Pet Hospital hope that you will take the time this Thanksgiving to show your pets how much they mean to you.   So before you get carried up in the hustle and bustle, remember to take a moment to appreciate your pet…perhaps with a pet-friendly treat, a new toy, a longer than usual walk or play-time, or just by giving them some extra attention!

From all of us here, we wish you and your pets a very happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving!
