First Time Pet Adoption Tips

 

Deciding whether to adopt a pet for the first time is a decision that should not be taken lightly. There are many factors to consider including money, lifetime care, responsibility, compatibility and so much more. If you’re serious about the decision to adopt, but just need a few tips to get started, Ambassador Veterinary Hospital in Union City, NJ has highlighted our best pet adoption tips for first time pet owners.

7 Pet Adoption Tips

 

Research: Understand what type of pet will be best for your lifestyle. Size, age, exercise needs, temperament and more must factor into your decision before you adopt.

 

Money: The cost of food, training, vaccines and regular veterinary visits add up quickly. Make sure your budget can handle these added expenses.

 

Buy before you adopt: Your new pet should arrive to all the comforts of their new home. This includes having food, toys, bedding, treats, clothing and more all ready for your new addition when they walk through the door.

 

Have your home ready: Expensive shoes, gaps in your fences, small spaces, and miscellaneous items lying around the house should all be cleaned, fixed and/or put away before your new pet comes home.

 

Patience: Besides the patience of training a new pet, more importantly, you must have patience while they adjust to their new home. Some pets will be overwhelmed and hesitant at first; provide them with their own safe haven spot as they start to adjust and become comfortable.

 

Ask for guidance: Take a few trips to your local animal shelter or visit a veterinary clinic to speak with experts in the field and ask for pet adoption tips. They’ll each give you a different perspective on the demanding yet rewarding experience of adopting a pet for the first time.

 

Schedule a vet visit: Scheduling a visit to your local veterinary hospital before your new pet comes home ensures they have availability to see your new pet right away. Vaccines, dental exams, diagnostics and many other veterinary services should be done immediately. Scheduling a spaying/neutering appointment should also be done during this first exam. This ensures your new pet is not exposed to any diseases and determines the health status and organ functions of your new pet. All of these vet services can be performed at Ambassador Veterinary Hospital in Union City, NJ.
