There are many considerations when deciding to own a pet. Many take a break for a while, many are life long pet owners. How do you know if a pooch or kitty is a good choice for you? Here are some things to think about.

Will my home be right for them?

 

 

 

  1. Do I have ample space for them to run, and will my home be warm enough and safe for them to live?
  2. Will my children get along with them?
  3. Will my elderly parent be able to handle their needs or limitations?
  4. How much does a pet cost?

Consider the costs for medical care, check up and unexpected visits included. Be sure to plan for the unexpected expenses.

These are only a few of the questions to ask yourself when considering a pet – what are your answers? What did you decide?
