Take Your Pet to Work Week

Take Your Pet To Work Week starts June 22nd. If you’re working from home, as many people are these days, you may actually find yourself taking your work to your pet. A local Tampa, FL vet offers some tips on how to do that in this article.


Pets can be a great source of inspiration. After all, they do remind us of the importance of getting enough rest, drinking water, eating well, stretching, playing, and, of course, spending time with our loved ones. Fluffy is also a good inspiration about keeping up with our hygiene needs, while Fido helps remind us to explore our world, try new things, and just have fun. 


Our furry pals tend to thrive when they are on a set schedule. Try to stick to a steady routine for things like meals, breaks, walks, playtime, and cuddles. If you have a dog, take Fido out at certain times of day. The fresh air, sunlight, and exercise will be good for both you and your canine buddy.


Speaking of cuddles, one of the best things about working from home is being able to offer your pet lots of cuddles and love. Things have been very stressful, so give yourself time to hug, pet, or play with your furry buddy when you need to. Purrs and tail wags really do make everything better! You can also brighten up someone else’s day by sharing photos of your pet. Our animal companions can be worth their weight in gold when it comes to keeping our spirits up. Put a little tie on Fido, then share the photo with friends and family members.


Keep your furry friend in mind when you set up your desk area. If you have a cat, you may want to put a box on or near your desk. We all know that kitties just can’t resist boxes! Another piece of advice for those owned by cats: make sure to use a cup or bottle with a lid for drinking beverages. You don’t want Fluffy knocking your drink onto your computer! Kitties also enjoy smacking things off countertops, so you’ll want to keep that in mind as well.
