Being a new pet owner is both a blessing and a challenge combined in one.
You have decided that you want to adopt a pet, but have you thought about all the things your little one is going to need? Bringing home a new pet is exactly like bringing home a baby (well a furry baby) and mental and physical preparation is essential. Thinking about all the things you need to get done can feel overwhelming…
We are here to ease the process for you!
Whether you’re planning on adopting a dog, a cat or a hamster, all pets have similar needs but they vary according to their species. Truly understanding what it takes to care for another creature is the first step in the decision-making process towards adopting a pet. Think about adopting a pet like adopting a child…how would you approach this process? Do your finances allow for an additional member to be heavily involved in your life? Do you have the time to accommodate a pet? Is your home big enough for a cat or a dog?
What will you need before your new pet moves in? Here is a check-list to help you out:
Selecting a vet can be compared to selecting a paediatrician for your child.
Check in with friends and family (who own pets) about which vets they recommend or enjoy going to. Meet the vet and their supporting staff, and even take a tour to see whether the clinic checks your boxes! Finding a pet hospital in Dubai that you can trust is key and settling on a vet that you and your pet are comfortable with is of utmost importance. We might be biased, but we think Animal Specialist Clinic Dubai is one of the best!
Once you bring your pet home, you now set off on your journey with your new best friend and there are many memories to be made, carpets to be cleaned and fur to be dusted off your clothes. It’s set to be the best adventure of your life!
