Getting a new pet, regardless of what it is, is both and exciting and nerve-wracking event. But you want to make sure you [and your family, if you live with others] is/are ready for a new pet. From the usual dogs and cats, to more exotic lizards, snakes, or toads, there are hundreds of options for pets, but stricter options for what you should do to ready your home for your new companion.

Pet Proof Like You Would Baby Proof

Through research of your new pet, you should have a comprehensive, extensive grasp on what that animal needs. For instance, puppies are rambunctious and chew on things. Therefore, you should pet-proof your home in the same way you would baby proof your home. Put dangerous things out of reach, make sure your floors remain tidy, and provide your new pet with plenty of toys to stave off destructive boredom.

Invest in All of the Must-Have Pet Essentials

Pet essentials are the kinds of things your new pet MUST have. For example, if your new pet is a reptile, you need a tank big enough to accommodate the animal. You should also do research to discover the best kinds of bedding and hide-away spaces for your pet. Snakes, for instance, love heat, so invest in a good heat lamp to keep your reptile happy and healthy. In other cases, some pets have special needs for special vitamins, like dog glucosamine.

Do Tons of Research in Preparation

Lots of research goes into having a new pet. You need to keep your new companion happy, healthy, and alive, which requires preparation. If you would prefer real informative conversation to books, go to a reliable, reputable pet store to talk with someone knowledgeable about your pet. Or, you could even email a reputable zookeeper, veterinarian, or animal specialist to learn more about what your new companion needs.

Think for the Long Term

Pets are for as long as they live. Never, ever get a pet that you know will just end up in an adoptive, abusive, or neglected situation. Sure, it’s okay to take a break and let your pet play alone for a while. But, for the long term, your pet should be considered a major part of your family. They love you unconditionally, so you should reciprocate with the same feelings.

Understandably, the prospect of housing a new pet is an exciting one. However, take the aforementioned advice into account to better prepare your home for your new companion—whatever it may be.

Boil the water and add the water and shredded coconut into blender. Make sure to mix them as smooth as possible. Then, use a piece of cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to get pure coconut milk.

A Car Accident Injury is Serious Business

I needed to find a chiropractor in Petaluma due to an interesting injury related to a car accident. It wasn’t your typical injury in that I wasn’t even driving the vehicle. The injury occurred while I was attempting to change the oil in my older vehicle. I didn’t take the necessary safety precautions while jacking the car up and the vehicle fell on me while I was underneath it trying to get the oil pan plug off with a wrench. Had I been doing anything other than lying flat on the concrete, I probably would have been killed when the car dropped.

Still, I hurt my arm badly in the accident. I went the usual route by going to the emergency room to figure out the extent of my injuries. Nothing was broken, thank goodness, but I had an extremely serious muscle pull that require physical therapy and a cast that I had to wear for several months. I went through the entire treatment only to discover that the muscle didn’t seem to work correctly. I still had a great amount of pain and my range of motion seemed to be negatively affected.

I Am Almost Healed Up

I was not even moving at the time and I never saw this guy, in fact he was drunk and apparently running from imaginary police officers. That was what one of the witnesses said. There were around a dozen cars in front of me waiting on a light at a busy intersection. This guy hit me from the rear and spun me into a red pick up truck in the other lane. I ended up with a big lump on my head and a bunch of cuts and bruises, and eventually a Huntington chiropractor had to work on my back. That is the end of the story. I was knocked out for a moment I think, or at least I did not recall exactly what happen at the point in time between the first blow and the next one. Other people had to tell me that the truck had hit me. I was thinking that I had gotten pretty lucky at the least it did not seem half so bad as it could have been. I had a little hitch in my gait, but I was able to walk away. Continue reading “I Am Almost Healed Up”
