Getting a New Pet in Bernville?
Prepare Yourself for the Addition of a Furry Friend
Are you ready for your family to grow? Getting a new pet is always an exciting time—whether you’re adopting a middle-aged, abandoned dog or starting anew with a kitten. In every case, we’re here for you and your new pet today, next month, and in 10 years.
There are also many things for you to take into consideration when adding another furry friend to your family. Do you already have pets? What “tricks” will you (or should you) teach your pet? What kind of food should you buy? How do you make it affordable?
The first step is to make an appointment with your veterinarian so they can examine the pet, administer appropriate vaccinations, and do a few tests to make sure he or she is happy and healthy.
While at this visit, it is important to talk to your vet about many things including:
- Microchipping: Approximately 20% of lost dogs and less than 2% of lost cats who were not microchipped were reunited with their families. When microchipped, 52% of dogs and almost 40% of cats were returned home.
- Pet nutrition: Feeding your new pet a healthy and nutritious diet is one of the most important things to do.
If you’re adopting or buying a baby animal, you should also start thinking about training. There is a plethora of helpful information out there on what you should teach your pet and the best way to go about doing this. Vetstreet, the ASPCA, and PetMD all offer informative and valuable resources.
