It can be difficult to figure out which barn to choose boarding your beloved pet with. Below are some of the top things to take into consideration when comparing different horse boarding ranches.

Ranch Policies And Boarders

When searching for a boarding stable for your horse, you should look into the policies that they run the stable by. Do they have structure?

Location And Amenities

Those that know anything about horses will say the top thing to look for in a boarding stable is access to plenty of fresh water and hay. The hay should be clean, fresh and not littered with dust or mold. Preferably, your horse should also be given hay a few times each day on top of turnout.

Generally, you will want to find a stable you feel comfortable visiting. It should make you feel confident that you are leaving your horse in good hands while you are gone. Whenever you go visit your horse, be sure to give them a visual inspection each time. Take note of any physical or emotional changes in your horse.

As I am writing this today, something stumbled on mind in my opinion just today about my spiritual cat Joey. It has occurred if you ask me how safe and unconditional Joey’s love is. Our pets make it safe for all of us to present and receive love deeply. It seems that sometimes over a person’s lifetime we start building walls in a very young age. It happens without us even realizing it. With almost no thought or effort the walls become higher and thicker each and every time we go through hurt and betrayal. Subconsciously we presume that those walls will protect us from getting hurt: Actually what it does is cut us removed from the flow of life and all sorts of its’ goodness.. If we have been not living from your heart and our Divinity within, we have been managing thoughts of the mind and giving external circumstances power to affect our life which cut us removed from loving ourselves while others. – Most cats, if they have had positive experiences with dogs, will tolerate canines in the house

– Those that will not likely normally have had some prior negative interaction which is firmly a part of their memories

– Because most cats, even those who hate dogs, don’t attack without provocation, these cats may be able to accept a dog

– However, they probably will never bond while using dog, will steer clear of the dog no matter what, and are pretty miserable

– It is kinder to leave these cats inside a feline-only household

– Again, it’s possible to find out the of the cat before adopting it, as well as to test the cat’s reactions to dogs in the adoption situation

If your managing older animals, it’s going to be a little more rare to find both animals to have along. The most important thing you can do is chaperon both animals together in a room. This way, there is a possiblity to become acquainted with each other minus the probability of hurting each other under your watchful supervision. Just as a cat should be shielded from a puppy, a smaller puppy has to be protected against an average and territorial cat.… READ MORE ...

Helping Veterinary Clinic Staff Cope With Animal-Related Grief And Loss

Helping Veterinary Clinic Staff Cope With Animal-Related Grief And Loss

Introduction to Compassion Fatigue

The relationship with the pets, along with the role of animal companions in modern society has shown a marked change in recent years. For example, today the animal pet acts as a fully accepted family member or a social partner and has an essential influence on the life of the owner. A personal string of sentiments is attached between the owner and the pet.

We are aware of the sentiments attached between a pet and its owner but do we know the extent of fatigue experienced by the veterinarians, animal techs, and humane society workers?

Certainly not!

The dreaded burnout, academically known as “compassion fatigue” is a condition that gradually reduces the compassion of the caregiver and creates secondary distress and state of suffering while continually helping people or animals.

Studies confirm that caregivers or pet loss support consultants play host to a high level of compassion fatigue, in part due to an environment that constantly present heart wrenching and emotional challenges to them. Hence, it is inevitable to avoid compassion fatigue touching the lives of the caregivers.

The veterinary community has a responsibility to enhance the human-animal bond through science and medicine and by emotionally supporting pet owners. Therefore, one of the most challenging moments for veterinarians is the time when a pet’s health and life can no longer be sustained. This establishes a dual traumatic condition for the veterinary staff where at one end is the dying pet and at the other end is the pet owner suffering from immense grief and sorrow.

Symptoms of Compassion Fatigue

However, veterinarians are robust and are trained to carry out their job and the associated duties with complete professionalism. Only seeing a traumatic situation cannot distort their compassion. Hence, it can then be quoted that there are combined factors that lead to compassion fatigue which can take a physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional toll on people who experience it.

Common symptoms of compassion fatigue include:

  • Chronic physical and emotional exhaustion (pains/ sadness)
  • Isolation or Depersonalization
  • Feelings of inequity toward the therapeutic or caregiver relationship
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of self-contempt
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Weight loss
  • Poor job satisfaction and difficulty concentrating.

Preventing or Treating Compassion Fatigue

Self-evaluation to recognize changes in behavior, work, and life outside of work is the first step to avoid compassion fatigue. However, instead of entering into a phase of self-doubt, it is better to take prevention steps and seek professional assistance to eliminate compassion fatigue from work and life both.

Following practices can help prevent compassion fatigue:

  • Reduce stressful workloads
  • Take adequate rest and sleep
  • Take regular vacations
  • Mediate or exercise
  • Engage in interesting hobbies.

We have also gathered pro tips that can be useful in treating compassion fatigue to a more significant extent:

  • Talking about your feelings with a trusted person and a mental health professional
  • Make yourself aware of the effects of compassion fatigue
  • Developing a healthy diet
  • Give time to yourself and revive fitness goals
  • Reach out to support groups
  • Visit friends and involve in playful activities.

However, compassion fatigue is real and a dangerous condition.

Therefore, people experiencing compassion fatigue should seek the support of a professional mental health doctor to help them overcome difficult thoughts and emotions. This support will allow them to focus on healthy coping mechanisms and cope up with compassion fatigue later in future.
