Supplies to start off on the right paw

Below are the basics to get through your first few days smoothly. It’s important to set up your pet’s habitat BEFORE you bring them home but if you need to pick up a few supplies, Petco is here for you!

Most include a habitat, food bowl, water bottle and bedding. You can also use these handy checklists to ensure you’re getting the right supplies for your specific pet type.
