How do narcissists treat animals and pets?
AnswerMy MIL is a N, and she had SUCH disdain for animals. She once spent thousands of dollars on a trained German Shepherd in order for him to protect her at her business. She literally kept him locked in a closet with minimal food for a week before my husband convinced her to return him to the previous owner. She thought his existence was to live in the dark and not bother her until a robber appeared, and then she would open the closet door and he would attack. Another example: my husband had a dog when he was a child that he really loved. He got off the bus from school just in time to see his dog riding in the back seat of a car, staring at him through the window as he rode away. My poor young husband ran into the house to find out that his mother had given the dog away to seal the deal in a retail sale at her business. But when her latest boyfriend was going out of town on business, he was considering having his ex-girlfriend watch his dog. When the N found out about this possible loss of attention, she immediately said she would watch the dog and LOVED animals. A day after her boyfriend had left town, she called hubby and I to get the number for the nearest kennel. The 5 lb dog had become such an inconvenience because it had it's collar stuck in it's mouth! When we arrived, the dog was locked in a small area covered in urine. We brought it home with us and kept it until the owner came back. Easiest dog in the world. In my experience, N's don't care about anything or anyone unless they suit a purpose. They are best described as evil from head to toe.
answerWhen my N lived with me, he doted on my three cats, and even took a special liking to the oldest one. He carried her everywhere and even slept with her. He used to put the cat right in the middle of us. (Now I know he did this so he wouldn't have to be so close to me, but that's another story...) When I was in the process of throwing this guy out of my house, he flew into a rage at the cats when they got in his way. I barely managed to move the cats to a safe room where he wouldn't hurt them. I was horrified that he could do that. I started to wonder if he treated the cats that way when I wasn't around.I don't believe N's have empathy for animals OR people. I believe that they may derive some Narcissistic supply even from the adoration of an animal, but that may be as far as it goes. This is just my experience.
My N ex loved his two dogs. One peed all over the house, and the other was a pain as well. His whole life revolved around those dogs. Every little thing he did revolved around the dogs eating, sleeping, even our whole summer was decided by one of his dogs trying to break down the basement door....we never slept that summer because of his dogs. We argued constantly. My cat, though, had to stay locked up in a certain part of the house. He hated cats. I heard that somewhere that they don't like cats because they can't control them.....makes sense.
Narcissists don't react well when you tell them they are narcissists. A psychologist once told me that narcissists are the most difficult patients to treat. Answer 2: Culture of Narcissism, by Christopher Lasch ,purchase this for your husband. Is he true to the book? If you appoach him with being narcissist will he care.
The Amish treat their animals the way any farmer treats theirs. They feed them and give them a place to stay, Everyone is different and some are better than others. Just like other people treat their pets. You can't force anyone into a mold, we are people and have different responsibilities. People forget that animals are just that, they don't have eternal souls or a spirit. We don't see animals worshiping a God or even…
The difference is in how the owners view and interact with the animals. Farm animals are seen as economic units - there is a cost/benefit analysis done to determine when to treat a sick farm animal and when to just sell or euthanize it. Pets are seen as companions, and often there is little to no cost/benefit analysis to determine treatment - if the condition can be treated, it often is.
It could be possible that you might feel guilty about how you (or others, if there were any in the dream,) treat animals/pets. It might be a side thought about some actions that the person has done that could affect animals, such pollution or mistreatment to pets. ..... I'd like to know more information about the dream before venturing any interpretation. Would you consider posting more on the discussion page?
As animals usually didn't know what they are doing, they usually made unacceptable things to people which led to miss treat of people to animals. I ask myself the same thing when I hear about people harming pets or even wild life. They dont have a right to do it either. The pets may have done something bad and the people were upset about it but soon,the people who are loving and caring say sorry…
A zoologist is a scientist who studies animals. Zoologists generally perform research on the subject. Veterinarians could be described as "animal doctors". They treat illnesses and injuries in animals. Veterinarians generally do not perform research, but rather work at an animal hospital treating individual animals, typically pets.
It depends on the laws of the state. A degree in veterinary medicine is normally required to medically treat animals. ( Such as a Vet Tech) A euthanasia certificate is required for the sole purpose of performing the act of euthanasia. One example is a person who works at a shelter and it is their job to perform euthanasia on the sick injured or unwanted pets.

This will depend on the type of medicine the veterinarian is practicing. In the United States there are four main types of practitioners. Small animal practitioners treat dogs and cats primarily. Practitioners that have branched out into exotic pets will care for birds, reptiles, snakes, rodents like guinea pigs and hamsters and other non-traditional pets. Large animal practitioners treat cattle, hogs, sheep, goats, llamas and alpacas. Equine practitioners treat horses, donkeys, mules and other equids.
