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
- Brushes and combs
- Nail clippers
Home and Comfort
- Potty training pads/litter boxes
- Crates and Gates
- Leashes and leads
- I.D. Tags
