Default Some Basic Pet Supplies for Your New Pet

Before bringing your new dog or cat home, it is a good idea to shop
for these basic pet supplies. These are the things any pet owner will
need to make the dog or cat comfortable in its new home.
Something to feed your pet in will be needed, of course. These don't
have to be made just for dogs or cats, but it is a good idea to
designate certain dishes for them.
Bowls made for pets do have some advantages. Many have rounded
bottoms, and often these are the easiest for pets to eat from,
especially if they are eating canned dog or cat food.
Some pet dishes have rubber feet or rings around them to make them
"skid-proof", which is also a bonus. Bowls with round bottoms can't be
tipped over by over-excited puppies.
When choosing pet bowls, stainless steel or ceramic are preferable to
plastic. Plastic can leach toxic chemicals as they age. They are also
harder to sanitize, as bacteria can invade the plastic as it wears.
Plastic also scratches easily and cracks, and soft plastic can be
chewed up....
