Don’t be surprised to see dogs in hospitals, doctors’ offices, nursing homes, shopping malls, airports and parks. Most are quite gentle, but never pet a dog without first getting permission from the handler.

As 'n dokter voorgeskryf het vir jou 'n terapie of hulp troeteldier, en jy is opgelei in die sorg van daardie troeteldier, die verhuurder het gewoonlik om dit te aanvaar. But you must have official paperwork proving the animal is qualified and required to keep you safe, and it must never be a threat to anyone else.

If a doctor has prescribed for you a therapy or assistance pet, and you have been trained in the care of that pet, the landlord usually has to accept it. But you must have official paperwork proving the animal is qualified and required to keep you safe, and it must never be a threat to anyone else.

Die polisie en redding personeel gebruik dikwels honde en perde om verlore mense vind of om gevaarlike situasies te beheer. Wanneer jy sien hoe iemand besig met 'n hond of perd, it is best to obey any orders and not interrupt or get in the way.

Police and rescue personnel often use dogs and horses to find lost people or to control dangerous situations. When you see someone working with a dog or horse, it is best to obey any orders and not interrupt or get in the way.

Licensing and other pet rules

Licensing and other pet rules

Most communities have pet rules that require you to keep animals healthy. Hulle vra dat metgesel diere soos honde en katte word vir hondsdolheid ingeënt en gelisensieer, sodat hulle kan vermoed siekte-vry en teruggekeer as gevind hardloop los. Sommige stede vereis troeteldiere word gesteriliseerd, of “vaste,” sodat hulle kan nie voortplant. Groot boetes kan gehef word en diere weg van jou geneem word indien hierdie vereistes voldoen word nie.

Most communities have pet rules that require you to keep animals healthy. They ask that companion animals like dogs and cats be vaccinated for rabies and licensed, so they can be presumed disease-free and returned if found running loose. Some cities require pets to be neutered, or “fixed,” so they cannot reproduce. Large fines can be charged and animals taken away from you if these requirements are not met.

The law says pets must have shelter from the heat, koue, reën en sneeu. Gaan met jou polisie-afdeling of beheer kantoor dier vir besonderhede. As jy agterkom jou troeteldier is vermis, check die buurt, bel die polisie of dier beheer, sit kennisgewings, en monitor “gevind troeteldier” webwerwe.

The law says pets must have shelter from the heat, cold, rain and snow. Check with your police department or animal control office for details. If you notice your pet is missing, check the neighborhood, call police or animal control, put up notices, and monitor “found pet” websites.

As jou troeteldier is ingesamel deur die polisie, jy sal hê om te bewys dit is joune deur die vervaardiging van registrasie en inentingsertifikate, en u mag hê om 'n aansienlike boete te betaal, soms soveel as $100, om jou troeteldier terug te kry. As jy nie jou troeteldier eis binne 'n paar dae, die troeteldier kan vermoor (euthanized, “sit neer” of “sit om te slaap”).

If your pet is collected by police, you will have to prove it is yours by producing registration and vaccination certificates, and you may have to pay a considerable fine, sometimes as much as $100, to get your pet back. If you do not claim your pet within a few days, the pet may be killed (euthanized, “put down” or “put to sleep”).

In landelike gebiede, troeteldier lisensiëring dalk nie nodig wees, maar mak diere van alle groottes en tipes nog moet ingeënt, toesig of vervat. As 'n dier kry uit 'n hok en veroorsaak 'n ongeluk, eienaar van die dier se kan aangekla word betaal vir al die skade. Dit is veral ernstig met groot diere soos perde en koeie, maar selfs kleiner diere kan veroorsaak bestuurders te swenk en crash. As jy ry en teëkom 'n dier in jou pad, hou die wiel reguit en stadiger. Sein en skuif na die kant van die pad as jy 'n dier getref. Read more about this below, onder “Livestock and farm animals.

In rural areas, pet licensing might not be required, but domesticated animals of all sizes and types still must be vaccinated, supervised or contained. If an animal gets out of an enclosure and causes an accident, the animal’s owner can be charged with paying for all the damages. This is particularly serious with large animals like horses and cows, but even smaller animals can cause drivers to swerve and crash. If you are driving and encounter an animal in your path, keep the wheel straight and slow down. Signal and move to the side of the road if you hit an animal. Read more about this below, under “Livestock and farm animals.”

Daarna sal die koste van voeding en versorging van die gemiddelde troeteldier is oor $600 per jaar. Winkel rond vir 'n lae-koste veeartsenykundige klinieke en seisoenale gebeurtenisse wat 'n lae-koste dier aanneming bevorder.

It is best to pay for neutering, vaccinations and licensing up front. Those costs typically run about $400, depending on the size and sex of the animal. Thereafter the cost of feeding and caring for the average pet is about $600 per year. Shop around for low-cost veterinary clinics and seasonal events that promote low-cost animal adoption.

Good pet protocol

Good pet protocol

Nie almal hou van diere of goedkeur van hulle woon in huise en ry in 'n motor. Sommige mense is bang vir of allergies vir hulle. Laat gaste na jou huis weet jy troeteldiere en vra of hulle enige probleme voor hulle arriveer. Dit is beleefd om diere in 'n ander kamer te sit wanneer gaste besoek, en as die troeteldiere hou nie vreemdelinge, dit is dubbeld aanbeveel. Baie mense hou honde vir sekuriteit, so nie veronderstel om iemand te besoek sonder 'n uitnodiging. As jy of iemand anders is gebyt deur 'n hond, kry vinnige mediese aandag en rapporteer dit aan die polisie sodat hulle kan waak teen 'n potensiële bedreiging vir openbare gesondheid.

Not everyone likes animals or approves of them living in homes and riding in cars. Some people are afraid of or allergic to them. Let guests to your home know you have pets and ask if they have any problems before they arrive. It’s polite to put animals in another room when guests are visiting, and if the pets dislike strangers, it’s doubly recommended. Many people keep dogs for security, so don’t presume to visit someone without an invitation. If you or someone else is bitten by a dog, get prompt medical attention and report it to police so they can guard against a potential threat to public health.

Die meeste gemeenskappe vereis beide honde en katte word leiriem of opgehou toe buite die huis of erf om te verhoed dat pla ander en vir hul eie beskerming.

Most communities require both dogs and cats be leashed or restrained when outside the home or yard to prevent them from bothering others and for their own protection.

Pet rules for injuries and abuse

Pet rules for injuries and abuse

As jou troeteldier is getref deur 'n motor, gepla vee, of gebyt iemand terwyl dwaal sonder toesig, die polisie mag hê om dit dood te maak om die publiek te beskerm. Soms 'n beseerde dier sit as daar niemand is om te betaal vir mediese sorg. Jy het waarskynlik sal gehef word vir enige skade en uitgawes. 'N weghol troeteldier kan ook die slagoffer van 'n coyote of ander prooi dier geword, or taken in by someone who never reports it.

If your pet has been hit by a car, bothered livestock, or bitten someone while wandering unsupervised, the police may have to kill it to protect the public. Sometimes an injured animal is put down if there is no one to pay for medical care. You probably will be charged for any damages and expenses. A runaway pet can also become the victim of a coyote or other prey animal, or taken in by someone who never reports it.

Geselskapsdiere moet nie misbruik word, hurt or injured in the USA, en dit is 'n ernstige misdaad byna oral om seks te hê met 'n dier. 'N Goeie reël gevolg deur baie troeteldier eienaars is nooit iets om 'n metgesel dier wat jy nie wil doen om 'n kind te doen. Nog 'n oorweging is om te besef dat as jy honger is, dors, warm of koud, your companion pet probably is, ook, so ook al troos wat jy verskaf vir jouself moet uitgebrei word om 'n troeteldier.

Companion animals must not be abused, hurt or injured in the USA, and it is a serious crime nearly everywhere to have sex with an animal. A good rule followed by many pet owners is never to do anything to a companion animal that you would not do to a child. Another consideration is to realize that if you are hungry, thirsty, hot or cold, your companion pet probably is, too, so whatever comfort you provide for yourself should be extended to a pet.

Most Americans are meat eaters, maar tot 10% van die bevolking óf het 'n sterk godsdienstige, omgewing of gesondheid redes vir die eet net groente. Sommige mense sal vis en pluimvee, maar eet nie “rooi” vleis (rundvlees van koeie, vark van varke, of 'n lam en skaap van skape). Sommige stedelinge hou hoenders vir eiers, waar toegelaat.

Most Americans are meat eaters, but up to 10% of the population either have strong religious, environmental or health reasons for eating only vegetables. Some people will eat fish and poultry but no “red” meat (beef or veal from cows, pork from pigs, or lamb and mutton from sheep). Some city-dwellers keep chickens for eggs, where allowed.

As gevolg van die voorkeur vir bokvleis onder baie vlugtelinge, a number of goat farms have been established. Eating horse meat is generally frowned upon in the USA, en dit is onwettig in die meeste gemeenskappe te perd eet, hond, kat, of enige ander dier in die algemeen of tradisioneel gehou as 'n troeteldier of metgesel. Duiwe of eekhorings gevang in die wilde mag OK om te eet, but never catch such animals in a public park.

Stop and wait for the herders to wave you through, and proceed slowly. Don’t honk your horn or you could cause a stampede. If stuck in a throng, keep your windows rolled up, and don’t be too surprised if a sheepdog climbs over your car to do its job.

Boere het lank staatgemaak op katte om muise uit hul graan en saad te hou. Slange ook graag muise eet (hoewel die meeste inheemse slange is nie lief vir katte), so 'n plaas kat kan albei afneem muise en slange hou. Dit is die beste om seker selfs plaas katte maak (of “MOUSER” as hulle soms genoem word) ingeënt en gesteriliseerd.

Farmers have long depended on cats to keep mice out of their grains and seeds. Snakes also like to eat mice (though most native snakes are not fond of cats), so a farm cat can keep away both mice and snakes.
