Health Tip: Thinking About A Pet?

(HealthDay News) -- You should think about your lifestyle and family's needs before introducing a pet at home, the American Veterinary Medical Association says.

Pets require love and attention, and a pet isn't right for every family, the group says.

It advises here's what you should consider:

  • Do you already have a pet? If so, will your current pet get along with another?
  • What are you looking for in a pet?
  • Do local laws or your housing situation limit your choice of pet?
  • Are you capable of providing the amount of attention your pet will need for the animal's entire life?
  • Can you afford the cost of caring for your pet?
  • How long will you be away from your pet during the day, or if you travel?
  • Who will care for your pet in your absence?
  • What changes might occur in your living situation that would affect your ability to keep your pet in years to come?
