My Newborn and My Dog – Safety

Every new parent who has a dog at home always wonders how the dog will react to the new vulnerable family member. This can be a very critical thing to deal with, so make sure and check with your Livonia vet to make sure it’s handled properly.

Slow Introduction

Sometimes, it helps to start carrying around a doll a few weeks prior to the birth. This communicates to your pet that there is something to which you must dedicate your time, and it can help your dog accept the new family member. Ask your Livonia vet for more helpful details.

Whatever you do, your dog still needs some playtime and attention. Set aside a few minutes each day to make sure that he or she is taken care of. Everything will change when the baby arrives. Your dog will eventually get used to this. For more information, check with your veterinarian Livonia.
