New Pet Checklist

May 08, 2018

May marks National Pet Month. Bringing home a new furry friend can be full of excitement, especially as you prepare your home for their arrival. In the midst of the enthusiasm, it can be easy to overlook some of the major essentials needed for owning a pet. Whether shopping at your local store or online, Dollar General is here to help customers find ways to save on the pet necessities. 

Pet bed: Welcome your pet home with a comfortable place to sleep. The EverPet® Pet Bed is an affordable option to meet your pet needs. Available in various sizes, the Everpet® bed options are comfortable and an economical option for pets of all sizes.

Puppy Pads: For new dog owners, puppy pads can be essential to keeping an accident-free home as you housebreak your pet. Puppy pads can be convenient and easy to cleanup.

Steel Pet Bowl: A stainless steel dog food bowl that resists bacteria, rust and scratching is a long-lasting, durable option for your new pet. Consult with your veterinarian on how often to feed your pet throughout the day and on needed water intakes.

Retractable Leash: Get your pet outdoors and moving with a leash that can extend from two to 16 feet. This leash is a great option that can support dogs up to 55 pounds.

Toys: Stocking your home with enough toys to keep your pooch entertained is important so they don’t retreat to using your belongings as their own personal chew toys. This EverPet® Knotted Rope Toy is great for a game of tug-of-war and for their teeth and gums! If your pet is smaller, they may enjoy an EverPet® Vinyl Squeaky Toy instead. This toy comes in an assortment of colors and shapes!
