  • No. Especially not dogs. They need to be treated like dogs for their own health. We take the Cesar Milan approach.

  • well.. they kinda are members of the family aren't they?

  • not really. she's counted in as a member of our 'household' (although she's an outdoor-dog), but she's not equal status as a human, not at all.

  • yes. They get the same level of care and concern as the rest of the family just not to the same extent as family. I would do anything to save my children. I recent.y put my cat down because treatment could have exceeded 2,000 and it was just a chance he would make it. If it was my child it would be different. They do get good quality food, well visits, sick care when they need it and a good quality of life until I can no longer provide it, such as 2,000 dollar liver treatment.

  • Yes. My cats are my babies too! I don't dress them or anything like that but I do love them and cuddle them and take care of them.

  • Yes to some extent. I don't believe in allowing the dog free reign. She knows who is in charge and who isn't. But otherwise we try to provide the same care we would our children.
