Superstitions and Pet Health

Many people believe in superstitions. Some would give anything to know the secret of the past. They believe that the cause of their pet's illness, disease or even death is because of some hidden power. Sometimes, these beliefs are true and sometimes not. What's important is that you don't let superstitions keep you from treating your pet properly.

The truth is, most superstitions are nothing more than ill-informed beliefs that have been passed down through the ages. Take for instance the belief that salt causes bad breath. Now, this is true. But there is a very easy way to test this out - salt is easily eliminated from your diet altogether if you just replace it with table salt. So this superstition is false. If you really wish to know how to treat bad breath, then just get rid of salt from your diet.

Some other common superstitions include the idea that a dog or cat who is ill is somehow unclean or unholy. Some even believe that cats can tell when their body is sick. This is completely untrue. Again, it's a shame that these beliefs are based on ignorance rather than good solid scientific fact. In short, you have nothing to fear but many superstitions to live by.

It's also important to note that many of these superstitions aren't actually based on any scientific fact at all. For example, the idea that a pet's illness is caused by an evil spirit has no basis in reality. There are some animal behaviorists that study this type of thing and they've found no evidence whatsoever that shows that it holds true. It's actually a psychological belief that the suffering of a pet is somehow due to bad luck or the loss of a loved one. So, while it may make good sense to think this way about your pet's health, it's best not to give into it.

Another one of those superstitions is the idea that good pet hygiene is something that only dogs have. While it's true that dogs seem to get sick less often than people, this isn't because of good hygiene, it's because they don't get sick in the first place. In other words, a dog can't contract a disease if he/she stays healthy. So, another myth.

If you're a dog owner, it's probably time to learn a few of these old myths and dispel them once and for all. First of all, dogs aren't better pets than cats. They're both very active animals, and both have their moments of happiness. It's the owners' misconception that causes them to suffer. Dogs just don't live as long as people do, and that's why it's more important to take good care of yourself and your pet than it is to work on having a pet to pass on.

Now that you know that your pet doesn't have to be a cause for worry and that there are no superstitions out there about how long your pet should be with you, it's time to start taking good care of yourself. Good health is important not only for yourself but for your pet, too, so make sure that you get plenty of exercises and eat a good diet. Taking care of your body will make you feel better and be able to care for your pet better.

If you're going to believe in superstitions, at least make sure that you understand what you're doing before you believe it. If you're unsure of what you're talking about or don't feel comfortable with the concept of superstition, consider talking to someone who does. There are plenty of books and articles out there explaining the realities of pet health and the damage that some of these superstitions can cause. The same goes for people who believe that eating a raw apple is a good idea. There's proof that apples don't hurt you and they're certainly better for you than cooked ones, so there's nothing wrong with believing in them, just don't turn a blind eye to the cons.
