The American Kennel Club announced that the Labrador Retriever has taken the #1 spot for the 23rd consecutive year! And the Cat Fanciers’ Association has placed the Persian in the top spot for over 30 years! Jumping into pet parenthood can be a happy, exciting and rewarding experience for both pet and parent.
However, you don’t need a purebred pet. Shelters have an excellent selection of wonderful cats and dogs that are unique, one-of-a-kind mixed breeds. But purebred or mixed, careful planning is essential. You’ll want a pet that is bestsuited to your household.
Talk with your vet before you bring a new pet home. They can help you create a new pet checklist, schedule an initial checkup and answer last-minute questions.
