How to Select a Reputable Pet Store

Pet stores are one-stop shops for purchasing a dog, cat, fish, bird, or a smaller animal – plus their food, treats, toys, and supplies. When choosing a shop, animal lovers should be sure it matches up with their specific needs. They should take some time to research local retailers in the area with positive reviews. Additionally, here are a few features to consider in the search for a satisfactory pet store.

Adoption Conditions and Available Services

Pet stores vary in size and products offered. Some may only sell items for small animals like gerbils, lizards, birds, and fish. Check out websites of the companies of interest and call them with specific questions before making the trip. If a pet requires a specific brand of food, especially one recommended by a veterinarian, does the store carry it? Can they order it? If not, move on to other options.

Appearance of Animals

A high-quality pet store should place a premium on keeping its animals healthy, alert, and happy. When walking through the store, do the animals look clean, well fed, active, and enthusiastic? When looking to adopt, the environment must be spacious, clean, and free of odors. None of the living areas should be constrictive or overcrowded; all dogs or cats should be living in a roomy, hygienic, healthy area. Before purchasing a four-legged friend, confirm that it is free of any disease or other health problems.

Friendly, Informative Staff Members

The services provided by the company’s owners and staff members should be gracious and informative. Guests should be greeted by friendly, knowledgeable employees who are there to help and answer questions. They should be prepared to answer any questions about the animals available for adoption or the status of current pets. At the same time, the employees must be able to recognize that when a guest’s pet is sick or injured, they should be talking to a veterinarian or medical professional.

A Local Shop That Cares

Investing in a local retailer that is in the neighborhood is an investment in the community and a convenient solution. Going to a local source for supplies makes it easier to stay stocked on essentials like food, hygiene products, and training tools. In addition to convenience, a good store should be cost-effective. Find a business that sells quality items at competitive prices.

Selecting a pet store doesn’t have to be an exhaustive, time-consuming process. Look for one that is clean and bright, demonstrates clear affection and in-depth knowledge of its animals, and offers a variety of products and services.

Why Pets Are Attached To Their Owners

A friend once lost one of her pets and was so distraught she mourned it for weeks. Some people do not understand the attachment she had to the poor puppy. While majority of people cannot understand why a human being should love his or her pets more than even human beings, pet lovers, on the other hand, find it difficult to believe they are misunderstood.

Today we are going to look at the issue from a different perspective.

Animals have souls just like human beings. But the souls of Animals are rather fluid, and not individualistic as that of the human soul. In the same way, even trees and rocks have their own souls, but their souls are rather forces of the elements that inhabit the trees and as their houses. There are stories of trees that refuse to fall and which even bulldozers cannot pull down; or if it was pulled down, it stands again. Such stories are not only found in superstitious Africa but also in the Scandinavian countries, where some of the natives still have connections with the forces of the elements. Even Rocks have their own beings that inhabit them, just as flower elves inhabit flowers, where the flower is far away from human habitation and may not be disturbed by humans.

But Animal souls are different from these, since they are imbued with independent movement. All elephants, for example, have souls which after death flows back to the common pool like a river, only to incarnate again by a small part of the pool flowing into the animal at the middle of pregnancy. Thus, in principle, no animal is meant to be a reincarnation of another, except in special circumstances.

These special circumstances can be of two types. The first is by applying the strongest force on earth, the power of Love. When a man loves his pet, the love radiation can hold the pet’s soul together, making it individualistic and therefore, if the pet passes on, the soul is not allowed to flow back to the group soul. Under this condition, the animal can reincarnate, and can still seek out the former owner if he is intuitively alert to recognize it.

The second is more rare in application. There are also animals in the higher realms which have nothing to do with animals in the realm of animism.These can sometimes be incarnated on earth for special tasks. However, these ones cannot incarnate on animal bodies but in HUMAN BODIES. Hence not every human being is a normal human being.

Animal Communication Can Help Traumatized Animals

You can’t tell just by looking at a cat or dog, but PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) can affect animals as well as humans.

Loss of one’s human family and home due to floods, fires, earthquakes, and other natural situations are on the rise for animals.

Imagine if you experienced this loss, and then someone picked you up off the streets, put you in a cage, and sent you far away from your home so you’d never be able to find your human family again.

And many animals are moved around from shelter to shelter, while others are killed (euthanized is not a correct term here) out of so-called kindness.

This is the situation experienced by many displaced animals today. With the best of intentions, they are shipped by rescue organizations all over the US.

Their emotional state is often not taken into account, partially because many humans still don’t understand that animals feel just as humans do.

When you open your heart to adopt someone at a rescue shelter, you may sense right away that the animal is in an enormous amount of emotional pain.

You may want to help, want to connect with them. You may feel drawn to adopt that person in fur or feathers.

But once s/he arrives at your home with you and your family, the steps necessary for healing are not always obvious.

Since each case is different, general suggestions, such as “give the new animal his/her own space” or “be very patient with the animal” are great, but may not move the animal forward as effectively as having a professional animal communicator connect telepathically with the animal.

A Professional Animal Communicator has special abilities that are very helpful to the animal:

  • the ability to sense and feel the animal’s energy.
  • the ability to experience the animal’s perspective viserally and emotionally.
  • the ability catch glimpses of the animal’s inner emotional state, even when they may be deeply hidden.
  • The ability to help the animal communicate with their new human companions to facilitate mutual understanding.

Most animals respond well to someone making a telepathic connection, in part because it may be the first time they have ever experienced this and don’t have any old baggage around it.Of course, that doesn’t mean the animal is going to open up and pour out their life history.

Just as you may find it too difficult to talk about your own life traumas, animals often feel the same way. But just knowing that someone can listen and understand helps many animals begin to open up again.

When you’ve been traumatized, trust is at a minimum or gone, and rebuilding trust can take a very long time.

Still, in a telepathic conversation, it’s possible to encourage an animal to begin to consider the possibility that their life situation is improving and their feelings will be respected.

When you’re in a state of PTSD, the feeling of having no control and of being powerless makes recovery feel hopelessly impossible.

In contrast, an Animal Communicator can ask the animal what will make him/her more comfortable. An Animal Communicator can encourage the animal to take some first steps towards healing.

Combining Animal Communication with Energy Healing and with The Emotion Codeā„¢ technique (of Dr. Bradley Nelson) brings together 3 powerful tools to help an animal transform back to feeling good about life.

So if you’ve recently brought home a new animal companion whom you suspect has some serious trauma in his/her past, consider Animal Communication and Energy Healing for your new family member.
