Just like with a baby, all new pet parents need to consider prepping their home when they bring home a puppy. Our friends at the ASPCA® offer some great tips on what to do before you bring your new dog home.
The No. 1 tip the ASPCA® mentions is to stock up on supplies. Luckily, PetMD has a great in-depth checklist of what to get for your new puppy. Most important, don’t forget about stocking up on cleaning supplies until your new ball of fur is housetrained!
The holidays are a special time to spend with loved ones—including your family pets. And with a few extra preparations, you can help your pets safely join the festivities no matter where you travel.
One of the most important steps is to make sure your pet is covered by pet insurance before you head out the door. If any unexpected accidents or illnesses happen along the way, ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans cover visits to any licensed veterinarian in the U.S. or Canada, including emergency clinics and specialists.
Additionally, with new travel assistance services available with ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plans, pet parents have even more help when they’re traveling with their pets. Our plans are the first and only ones to come with travel assistance services for pets.
