Prepare your house for your pet's arrival. A special place should be designated for it to eat, sleep, and eliminate. Obtain any necessary accessories (eg, collar, leash, ID tag, crate, cage, aquarium and dishes) before you bring your pet home. For most pets, you will need to pet-proof your home just as you would child-proof your home to avoid accidents. Harmful cleansers, plants, electrical cords, and breakable objects should be kept out of reach. Open windows should be screened.

Roaming pets are prime candidates for fights with other animals, traffic accidents, and communicable diseases from other animals. Their life span can be expected to be considerably shorter as a result.

Most pets are strictly indoor pets and are perfectly content, as long as they have access to food and fresh water at all times. AVMA strongly recommends that for a healthier, happier pet you consider keeping your pets indoors only. If your pet must go outside, make sure you know where it is at all times, that the pet is old enough to manage on its own, that it is identified in some fashion (microchip ID or breakaway collar and tag), current on vaccinations, and not outdoors in extremely cold, hot, or inclement weather.

If you don't want your pet in certain areas of the house, start training it immediately to avoid those areas. When choosing where your pet will sleep, keep in mind some pets are nocturnal animals and will be active at night. Placing soft bedding materials in secluded corners will help your pet to feel at home.

  • "Such an awesome staff and comforting knowing they are so patient with their clients. I asked a number of questions and received options for every single one. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Baldwin and her team so close to home for not only myself but for Rosie too!!"
    - Julie M.
  • "LOVE Phoenix Veterinary Center! They are very caring and loving towards our little Ellie. Dr. Baldwin and Dr. Ware are wonderful! As well as all the staff too. It's a small office, you can hear everything, I always hear them talking kindly and gently to the animals in the treatment area. I hear them talking to other owners, explaining treatments and procedures. Always being friendly and respectful. They really care- they do follow up phone calls and emails, show concern when Ellie isn't feeling well, and even squeezed us in just before closing on a busy Saturday. They go above and beyond and we appreciate them very much.
    Ellie's has been in for routine vaccines, upset tummy, itchy allergies, and a dental with an extraction. And every time we are there, the entire staff are absolutely wonderful."
