Anything you ever wanted to know (and many things you did not) can be found on the Internet these days.

When you need to know something about your pet, one of the first places you turn to is your phone. Read 8 iPhone Apps For Pet Owners or 10 Android Apps To Help Manage Your Pets for information on which apps are the most helpful.

The other option is the good old Internet. Here are five websites that offer resources for every pet owner.

1. - has a wealth of information for pet parents. Blog articles, like the one you are reading right now, contain valuable information. With hundreds of articles, there is sure to be something helpful for you on this site.

Click on the Store tab to shop for some pet needs and some unique items as well.

Another great feature is the Ask The Experts section. This is where you can post a question and a real pet expert will answer you. You can also browse through the forum to see what other users have asked in the past.

2. Animal Planet’s Pet Picker - If you are looking into getting a pet but are not sure what would be best for you, try the Animal Planet Pet Picker. It is a fun and interactive survey that will tell you exactly what type of pet would fit into your lifestyle.

Once you have the pet, check out the rest of the site to learn about what shows are playing on the TV channel and learn more about pets and animals in general.

3. The Humane Society website - The Humane Society is a great resource for pet owners. The site is always up to date with news and recall alerts. Their goal is animal welfare and they mean it.

The site also offers a wealth of knowledge in the form of blogs, slideshows, and news reports to keep you updated on pet and animal health and wellness topics.
