Agree with the other healers, your pet's your responsibility, not ours.

I do agree with most of the healers here. Although from my experience most hunters that are in a solid raid team would not use it. Also being a hunter I have noticed that once you are on a raid team with healers that know you and your play style, they do help keep the pet up with out asking. Also it is your job to spec it correctly to balance between dps and damage mitigation. Balls to the wall dps pets are great but they don't do near the dps of a pet that can last the fight. This was a mistake I made early in my wow career. And add in "Heart of the Phoenix". I must admit this article feels very last year. Thats just my opinion.

If your pet spec includes something as unnecessary as Heart of the Wild then maybe you should consider raiding with a different class.Thankfully in Ulduar pet damage is virtually non-existent. You just have to not be an idiot. If something is about to explode (i.e. Mim) you pull him away. There's no reason why your pet should be getting any damage at all on that fight unless you're prone to going afk for entire phases. They don't get damaged by anything iwhen fighting the majority of bosses. They don't get crap for AOE damage from bombs in XT or Mim. They don't get enough damage to worry about even with Yogg. It's easy mode to the extreme for pet management.Sartharion and to a lesser degree Heigan in Naxx are the only two raid bosses that even pose a slight problem. The first just requires you to pay attention. The second most competent raid groups will cleanse and heal your pet (since the damage can be excessive).
