Compatibility For Life
Important points to consider before you buy that pet!
key word to remember is COMPATIBILITY.
Will your new pet’s quality of life be compatible
with your own life style and needs?
1. Pick the right species.
Dog, cat, fish, pocket pet, etc. Remember reptiles must have very
specific environments, diets, and health care and should never pose a
danger to someone unfamiliar with your pet reptile.
Pick the right breed. For
example, retrievers, terriers, or spaniels genetically require more
activity than the house pet breeds such as a Chihuahua or Bichon Frise.
Select the appropriate age…
adult and trained (or with established habits good/bad); pup/kitten you
can train yourself.
Ask yourself if
expected life span of the pet (parrots +30 years; dogs and cats +16
years; ferret 5-6 years
…have the free time
to interact with the pet every day
… can comfortably
pay for high quality food (definitely not the less expensive discount
…boarding or pet
sitter when you are away.
…have studied the
idiosyncrasies of the type of pet you are going to acquire.
…your pet will be
compatible with neighborhood pets/people/free space
