Pet and Human Development #Infographic

Cats and dogs are unique and special creatures in many ways but when it comes to their development they have a lot of similarities with each other, and even with their owners!
Pets with educated owners often live longer and have a better quality of life, so read the tips below for each life stage and see what you learn.

Infant
Just like human babies, kittens and puppies need a lot of sleep to aid their muscle and brain development; a newborn kitten typically spends 90% of their day sleeping – almost 22 hours!

Adult
In their adult years, feeding your cat or dog a balanced diet and engaging them in regular exercise or interactive play can help prevent common health problems like obesity.
Dogs typically require around 20 minutes to 2 hours of exercise a day depending on their breed, consult your vet for more advice if you’re worried your dog may be overweight.

Senior
During later life, cats, dogs and humans can face similar health issues including diabetes, arthritis and kidney problems. MedicAnimal has created a specially tailored range of senior dog food and senior cat food to help stave off these common issues.

Wild and Whimsical: Play in the Animal Kingdom #Infographic #Animals

Just like human children (and human adults), many different animal species naturally engage in playful activities. These may include rough-housing, climbing, catching, rolling, sliding, blowing bubble rings, chasing, boxing, frolicking, pouncing, surfing, and so much more!

Why do animals play, especially those in the wild? The prevailing theory is that this activity serves as natural preparation – as young animals playfully interact with each other and their surroundings, they cultivate skills and attributes that are necessary for survival. They learn to hunt, fight, build strength, and react quickly.

However, many scientists have observed that play in the animal kingdom goes beyond just survival prep. They have noticed that some animals play simply for the fun of it, especially during times of peace and abundance. This holds true for human children as well; play acts as a dynamic, organic medley of life skill development, stress relief, and joy.

This infographic explores the play habits of twelve animals using adorable illustrations.
