Transcript for Be a Vet for Your Pet: How to Find the Right Pet
Take it away, beginer. Now time for "Be a vet for your pet." Our series and we're helping you pick the right pet for your family. Dr. Werber has been here all week, a spokesman for our sponsor, Iams. This is their question, how do I pick the perfect pet? Picking a pet is all about lifestyles. If you have a lot of time and love to go out and exercise, if you're home a lot think about a big dog. A dog that needs a lot of exercise, a dog that needs a lot of attention. Smaller dogs, maybe a little less so and, of course, if you spent a lot of time out of the house and like to go on vacation, animals that take care of themself, a cat. I have six of them and that is interinto a cat that read the dog book by mistake. Once you get them home how do you make sure the transition goes well. Preparation is key. Iams knows how important preparation is. You want to choose the right food for that pet. Give them the most energy and vitality. I love that just to house train, the house training is always tough. Absolutely. So, you know with a cat or kitten think about you got to get a good litter box and puffy pads, the essentials. Set yourself up. We want to thank the humane society of New York for bringing these wonderful pets with us. They are all up for adoption. So you can take little Rosie home with you.
