The thing no one tells you about pet ownership: pets have a lot of stuff. It’s not just food and water bowls. 

Whether your new pet is already home or you’re waiting to pick them up, here’s a new pet checklist to make sure you both have what you need.  

Regardless of what kind of pet you have, supplies generally fall into a few categories: nutrition, grooming, home and comfort, and safety. 


  • Food (dry and/or wet)

  • Food and water bowls

  • Vitamins and Supplements

  • Treats


  • Shampoo

  • Brushes and combs

  • Nail clippers

  • Wipes

  • Toothpaste

Home and Comfort

  • Beds

  • Potty training pads/litter boxes

  • Crates and Gates

  • Toys


  • Leashes and leads

  • I.D. Tags

  • Updated microchip
