The Keys to Better Care
We need to provide for our pets, by law. The Animal Welfare Acts 2006 (2011 in Northern Ireland) means that all owners need to provide for the Five Welfare Needs of their pets to keep them healthy and happy. These Five Welfare Needs cover Behaviour, Companionship, Diet, Environment and Health.
Behaviour - Your pet should be able to show normal behaviour patterns.
Companionship - Some pets like to live with other animals, some don't.
Diet - Make sure your pets are fed a suitable diet for their age, breed and health.
Environment - Make sure your pet has a suitable place to live
Health - Ensure your pets are in good health and seek veterinary advice if they become ill.
