Why Pets Aren’t As Bad As You Think

The Most Common Mistakes People Make When Feeding and Taking Care of Reptiles Although most people think about pets as either dogs or cats, there are a select few who opt to bring home, raise, and take care of the unconventional pet varieties, say like reptiles. You see, bringing home a reptile as a pet is nothing really new; however, if you are contemplating on getting one, the very first thing you need to understand is that taking care of it is never the same to that of owning a cat or dog. While you find feeding, grooming, and bathing your dog or cat as very easy, the same thing cannot be said about reptiles since they need more attention and focus. In fact, there have been countless cases of reptile pets dying at the hands of their owners because they failed to learn more about how to take care of them. Here are the common mistakes you have to avoid committing once you decide you’re going to have a pet reptile. 1 – Incorrect Feeding
Why Pets Aren’t As Bad As You Think
Since you’re an inexperienced reptile owner, the possibility of committing this mistake is very high, and although you might escape having serious trouble at first, you still need to stop feeding incorrect food to your pet reptile because it could result to its demise or death. The first thing you must figure out is if your pet is carnivore or herbivore. For example, you can’t overly feed a herbivore reptile with meat or protein because its body and system aren’t designed for it. Iguanas and uromastyx lizards are two common examples of lizards that shouldn’t be fed with protein-based diets.

2 – Wrong Hydrating Methods There’s a very common misconception among pet lizard owners in which they believe there’s nothing wrong in over-watering them. If there is excessive moisture in their cage, it could result to the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew, which in turn could pose a threat to your pet’s health. You also must be aware that some lizard types like chameleons are very difficult to take care because they are naturally temperamental. Simply put, you need to study their demands for the proper moisture level because it’s vital for keeping them healthy. 3 – Wrong Enclosure/Housing Another way that many reptile owners make silly mistakes is in building the house or enclosure for their pets. If humans need a stable and durable home to be safe from the elements outside, pet reptiles share the same sentiment. Keep in mind that pet reptiles are prone to getting sick or harmed if exposed to elements from the outside which they aren’t used to or perhaps the discomfort brought by the wrong cage or enclosure could stress them out. You see, there are things about taking care of reptiles are pets that you still don’t know about, and if you really are serious in succeeding, you need to go the extra mile in learning more about how to take care of your pet.
