Your Guide to Becoming the Ultimate Pet Parent

   All pets need the basics of food, water, housing and medical check-ups. Those are the obvious responsibilities that you take on when you add a pet to your family. It doesn’t matter if it has fur, scales, feathers or a shell. If it is alive, it will need those four basic things. But, you don’t want to be a basic kind of pet parent, do you?
Let’s look at ways you can become the
Ultimate Pet Parent
Take Your Pet on Road Trips!
Always make sure they have proper identification. That means a microchip for your cat or dog. Some birds have bands on their legs that can help identify them if they get lost.
Get Your Pet Their Own Instagram Page!
Instagram pet stars have become increasingly popular and run the gamut of species! Joining is simple and you know there are thousands of photos of your pet on the cell phone. Have fun and gain followers.
(Pssst…follow us on Instagram)
Fashion Forward
Dog and cat clothes are available everywhere! You can pick up an outfit at your local pet store, Amazon, PrideBites, or have clothes specially designed with your pet in mind. If clothes aren’t your pet’s thing, you can fetch a matching collar and leash set is always classy. (*affiliate links included)
Who Are You Wearing?
You can promote your dog’s breed or put your cat on a tee shirt for all to see. Don’t worry, they also have shirts for the more unusual pets too. It shows that you are a fun and proud pet parent!
Pet-Friendly Events
Many events are targeted for dogs but if your town has a pet parade, they usually welcome a variety of animals. If your pet enjoys a social life, these are a lot of fun to attend.
Pet Insurance
Do you have insurance for your pets? If not, you should check to see if it’s affordable. If not, try to put aside some money each month in an emergency pet fund. You don’t ever want to be faced with a life or death situation based on money.
Lifetime Commitment
To be the Ultimate Pet parent, you must make a lifetime commitment. There is nothing more precious than the love of a senior pet. It is also important to have arrangements made in the event you are not around to care for them. Losing a pet parent is one of the main reasons animals end up in shelters.
Have you thought of writing a blog to share the funny or endearing moments with your pet? Whether you blog for fun or profit, it is a great way to meet amazing pet lovers.
