Whether you're getting a new pet or merely buying pet products for an old (but loved) one, here is a checklist for the pet gear you’ll need:
What dog accessories do I need to buy?
Let's start with the basics. First and foremost, dogs need dog food bowls and a water bowl. If you really want to invest in their feeding system, elevated dog feeders are good options. They also need a comfortable dog bed, crate or pet carrier when on-the-go. And don't forget something for them to play with! Fun dog toys include chew toys, fetch toys and squeaky toys — you can’t go wrong with simple tennis balls.
What cat accessories do I need to buy?
On top of a cat bed, cat dish and water bowl, our feline friends also need litter boxes to keep themselves (and your home) clean. Cats enjoy climbing and clawing — a cat tree or kitty condo are popular options. Other great cat products include cat teasers and cat tunnels.
What pet supplies do I need for a fish, bird or other creatures?
Fish, birds and lizards are all pretty simple — all you need are fish bowls, bird cages or a home aquarium to keep them in line. Throw in a few aquarium accessories for the swimmers in your home, and they will be in heaven.
