Many people would quarrel that pets are like part of our family unit–only better. They in no way second-guess us, their love is absolute, their friendship sees us throughout lonesome times, and they’re with us through thick and thin. Unlike our human families, though, our pets are unable to take care of themselves. It’s up to us to find the pet related services that they need in order to live long and healthy lives.
Thanks to the Internet, it’s possible to find a wealth of pet related services close to wherever you may be. If you live in the NY Metro rea, for example, you can easily use an online pet services directory to find a breeder, a pet shop, or a vet in your area. If you’re on vacation with your pet and he or she gets sick or is injured, you can quickly go online to find a nearby vet.
More than Pet Supplies: An online directory of pet related services can be much more than a source for pet supplies, or a tool to find a listing for a pet store near your vacation home. It can also provide pet lovers and would-be pet owners with an abundance of information about all kinds of pet-related topics. For example, if you’re considering setting up an aquarium, the dizzying array of tanks and supplies can be paralyzing. You need sound advice on the differences between freshwater and saltwater aquariums, which among the hundreds of varieties of fish you should choose, and the steps you can take to ensure that your fish thrive.
Or, perhaps you have rabbits and would like to add a guinea pig to your family. You may not know that rabbits and guinea pigs aren’t compatible because the species tend to fight, or that feeding guinea pigs food made for rabbits could lead to a vitamin C deficiency in the guinea pigs. Whether you have a cat, bird, horse, or reptile, a good website will give you the information and support you need to ensure that your pets lead long, happy lives.
An Online Community: People who love their pets–and who doesn’t?–love to talk about them, learn more about their favorite breeds, and find new sources of pet products. There are websites offering pet related services that also enable you to post and read pet classified ads, But be aware not everything read on the web is verified. One still needs to be sure and after spending time on the web there’s nothing like talking with a local retailer, a local veterinarian, a local groomer, a local trainer for further in person research!
