Preparing for Your New Pet
Getting a new pet can be a lot of fun. You can choose from a dog, cat, hamster, gerbil, rabbit, and the list goes on and on. No matter what pet you choose, you will need to outfit them with the latest and greatest in pet gear. If you shop smart, you should be able to find many of your items for cheap.
The key to getting a good deal on pet gear is to shop early. Buy your items before your pet comes home with you. That way you won't be rushed to pay more for the necessary items. The following is a list of supplies needed for a new pet.
? Health supplies- vitamins and medications. These are available through your vets office or pet health websites like petmeds.com.
? Food- daily food, plus treats. Do a bit of research to find the best type of food for your pet. Don't forget to have treats for good behavior or to add variety to your pet's diet.
? Toys- catnip for cats, exercise wheels for hamsters, and chew toys for dogs. Try to get a variety of pets to keep your pet entertained and happy.
? Cages/Crates- a place for your pet to call home. Every pet needs their own personal space. Make sure to set up their area prior to bringing the pet home.
? Grooming supplies- specific to your type of pet.
The specifics of course, depend on the type of pet that you choose. All animals need food and water daily, as well as a chance to exercise and play.
Finding the cheapest pet gear is easier than you think. Try shopping online for the biggest discounts. You can try the larger chains like petsmart.com or you can try smaller specialty shops. Don't forget to try auction sites like EBay.com. I like to go to for coupon codes for almost everything I buy. They have a section dedicated to pet gear, and you may be able to save quite a bit on your pet gear. Look for free shipping deals to help sweeten the deal.
A new pet can bring a lot of joy into a family. Don't break your budget buying pet gear. Bargain shop for the best deals, and buy only what you need. You can always buy more toys and treats as you find a good deal, so don't worry about buying out the store on the very first day.
