Pet ownership has many responsibilities but the rewards include companionship, affection and entertainment. No pet ownership should be embarked on without thinking through all the implications. To be a responsible pet owner requires the ability to provide for all your pet’s needs.
When selecting the pet that is right for you, you will need to take into account costs of buying and providing for your pet, time needed to provide care, the accommodation and environment suitable for the pet and making sure you comply with the relevant regulations in regards to keeping that pet.
It is beyond the scope of this site to go into detail on all different pets and their care, however some areas of pet care will be addressed here.
