Giving A Pet As A Gift

by MetLife Pet Insurance
15 years ago
You should never let a pet become an impulse purchase. After careful consideration and research, individuals and families should seek a pet that realistically complements their lifestyle, schedule and energy level.

Instead of buying that cute little puppy or kitten as a gift, consider giving books on pet selection, training, care, health and diet or individual breeds. Videos and subscriptions to pet magazines and newsletters are also good choices. To improve the chances of a successful adoption, introduce pets during a relaxed, quiet time when you can devote full attention to helping the pet adjust. Typically the holiday season is a difficult time to introduce a new pet to your home.
