If Pets Had Thumbs Day

March 1 2021

March 3rd is If Pets Had Thumbs Day! Some of our furry patients wreak quite a bit of havoc with just their paws. One has to wonder what would sort of chaos would entail if Fido and Fluffy suddenly woke up with thumbs. A local Carmel Valley veterinarian makes a few ‘petucated’ guesses in this article.


F  ood Raid

One thing that all of our patients have in common? A love of treats. It’s probably safe to say that your canine friend would waste little time in ransacking your cupboards and raiding your fridge. You may come home to a pile of empty cans and wrappers, and a dog in a food coma. Cats are a bit fussier, of course. Fluffy may just knock everything out of your cupboards, open all your canned goods, and then find herself a place to sleep.


Hunting

Dogs and cats are both hunters in the wild. Fido and Fluffy may want to up their game a bit. Your furry buddy may very well help themselves to any fishing poles, nets, or other equipment you happen to have.


Scratches

Not all of your pet’s plans would necessarily be complicated. One of the first things your four-legged friend might do would be to grab something that would work as a back scratcher, and get that stubborn spot they can’t easily reach.


Adventures

While some pets are homebodies, many dogs and cats are the adventurous types. Fluffy and Fido may waste little time in letting themselves out and setting off on some adventures. Fido would probably head for his favorite park or pet store, while Fluffy may just continue her eternal quest for comfy napping spots.


Appointment

If your furry friend could gain control of their appointment calendar, you’d likely start seeing some changes. We suspect that some of our patients would cancel their exams and wellness care visits, and replace them with visits from dog walkers, pet sitters, and pet masseuses.


Online Shopping

It wouldn’t be a shock to find many of our furry friends trying out online shopping. Fido would probably order himself some toys, treats, and comfy beds, and perhaps schedule food deliveries. Fluffy would be more interested in live fish and cat furniture, but she’d probably also place some doggy adoption ads.
