Do any of these phrases sound familiar?:

– “I should give that vaccine to my pet.” (even though it doesn’t feel quite right to me)
– “I should do that test or give that medicine.” (even though I cant afford it and don’t even really want to)
– “I should prepare a home-made diet for my pet.” (even though I don’t have time for it)

Please don’t do that to yourself. Do not react from a place of guilt or fear. I invite you to respond from a place of compassion.

You are not a bad pet owner, if you don’t feel called to do what your vet or the media tells you to do…
