Websites every pet owner should know about – Part 5

Gone are the days when pet owners were solely at the mercy of their friends, family, or the local vet for information about their pet. Today, all you have to do is Google any pet topic, and you’ll marvel at the pages full of websites that will unfold before your eyes.

To help make navigating easier, following is a list of reputable websites organized by the theme of their content. With just a click of your mouse, a new world of possibilities is instantly accessible to you.

1. Informational Websites

www.avma.org

The American Veterinary Medical Association is an excellent first stop for anyone who already owns a pet or one considering pet ownership. This professional organization gives practical advice for the usual four-legged variety of pets but goes a step further into exotics and even wild animals.

Want to know where your state stands on a controversial animal issue like ear cropping and exotic pet adoption? This website has links to a variety of news articles, and can be a valuable source to find a reputable vet in your area.

www.aspca.org

Another worthwhile website for pet information is always the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. It offers a broad range of information for average pets and some not so average. As you would expect, responsible pet care rules this website. Some topics and tips include traveling with pets, pet safety issues like poison control, and even disaster preparedness.

If you do seek a shelter pet, you may find a link here to one in your area.

www.akc.org

The American Kennel Club is a dog organization dedicated to promoting the sport of purebred dogs and breeding. Some people seek information here if they feel their purebred dog is show’ worthy or they may wish to start a breeding business. The AKC also supports the concept of purebred dog adoptions for any family who, quite simply, just wants a pet dog.

Reputable dog breeders seek the valuable AKC Registered certification for their dogs. If you are considering adopting a purebred dog, this website would be a good starting point to qualify dog breeders in your area.

www.iacp.org

Anyone who considers themselves a dog professional belongs to the International Association of Canine Professionals. People like dog trainers, dog sitters, handlers, veterinarians, and even people who construct dog fences seek membership
