As with all sentient beings, cats and dogs can experience distress, pain and fear. Responsible cat and dog owners must be aware of the signs of illness or distress in order to effectively monitor health on a regular basis.  

Responsible pet owners also raise and work with their pets by balancing requirements for the pet’s care with their ability to provide those requirements. They know that cats and dogs that are properly cared for are better pets. They realize that, more than just a regular supply of food and water, adequate shelter and appropriate equipment is also necessary to ensure a cat and dog’s well-being and health.

In this module we will focus on answering the following three questions:

  • How should cats’ and dogs’ health and well-being be monitored and protected?
  • How do legislation and codes protect animal welfare?
  • In what conditions should cats and dogs live and be housed?
