Babies can baffle our pets, so it is best for you to be well informed before you bring home your new bundle of joy to meet your furry companions. Our friends at the ASPCA® offer some helpful tips on introducing your baby to both your dog and cat.

Additionally, you might want to check out these 5 myths about dogs and babies provided by Petside. One common misconception the article counters is that training begins when your baby comes home. Instead, you should start teaching your dog commands and mixing up your pup’s routine when you find out a baby is on the way to ensure an easier transition for all involved.

Accidents can happen to our feline friends in the blink of an eye. When emergencies do occur, pet parents may find it difficult to make rational decisions. That’s why it’s so important to have a plan in place before emergencies occur. 

To get started, ask your veterinarian’s advice on creating a plan. Be sure to find the closest animal hospital that provides emergency care and make sure you have your veterinarian’s phone number handy.

Another number to keep close is ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center at (888)426-4435. They are available24/7 if you suspect your pet has ingested something hazardous.

Check out this article from our friends at the ASPCA® to learn more about emergency care for your feline friend, such as first aid tips and signs that your cat needs emergency help. 

Remember, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans cover visits to any licensed veterinarian in the U.S. and Canada, including emergency clinics.
