Once you bring home a new pet dog or cat, you become the person responsible for its health and well-being. And that means a lot more than simply cuddling and playing with the cute little creature during every free waking moment (although these moments are also an essential part of your day, indeed).
To truly attend to your pet’s every need, you must be able to find the necessary provisions. Pet supplies are easy to find — pay a visit to the most trusted stores in the area and you can get pick the right products for your little friend.
So what should you be getting for your new pet? Here is an overview of the items you would need to prepare:
What You’ll Need for a New Pet
Your pet’s top need would be good quality food that will help keep him strong, healthy, and energetic. During the first days after taking your new pet home, you can visit a vet to request advice on what food would be the best to feed your pet. Eventually, you will be able observe your dog’s or cat’s eating habits, which foods he likes and dislikes, and which foods seem to produce an allergic reaction. You will soon be able to pick out the right food out of all the different options available in pet supplies stores.
In addition, you need to get proper food and water bowls for your pet so he can eat and drink comfortably at home, plus some treats.
Medicines and supplements
Most dry and wet pet foods already provide the important nutrients that animals need, but your vet might recommend supplements that can help improve certain aspects of your pet’s health. Also, your pet may experience a health problem every now and then, or (unfortunately) suffer from a serious condition. A good pet supplies store would have regularly replenished stocks of medicines and supplements.
Keeping your pet clean helps improve their overall health and — perhaps more importantly — allows you to hold, hug and snuggle up against your pet as much as you want without gagging from an unpleasant odor. You wouldn’t want your pet to get all itchy and uncomfortable because of fleas, ticks and other pests, either, so it’s important to bathe and groom your pet regularly. You can get soaps, shampoos, powders, sprays, toothbrushes, toothpaste, nail trimmers, eye and ear drops, and other pet hygiene products from your favorite pet supplies store.
Accessories and travel essentials
Finally, your pet will also need some special provisions. Collars and name tags are a must to ensure that your pet has identification and your contact information ready in the event that he gets lost. Leashes and harnesses are important when taking your pet out of the house. You may want your pet to carry a small backpack where his water, bowl, treats and toys can be kept (along with your pet supplies for cleaning up after him outdoors). And if you plan to travel with your pet, you will need to purchase bags or carriers so your pet can stay calm and comfortable during the trip.
