Adopting a New Companion

Doggy3_0

If you're thinking of getting a pet, a rescue or adoption center can be a great place to find a companion that's already house-broken. With some simple rules, you can ensure that the transition is smooth and disease-free for both you and your new best friend. > Never take a new pet into your home without first knowing that the animal is healthy, warn officials with Pets Are Wonderful Support in San Francisco. > Consult with your veterinarian before adopting or purchasing any new pet; the doc may want to screen the animals for parasites and other diseases before you take them home. > Keep in mind that adult dogs and cats pose fewer health risks to humans -- and are less susceptible themselves to diseases and infections -- than puppies or kittens.
