Pet abilities refer to a class of god abilities in SMITE that create minions for the team that summoned them. These pets have unique statistics (such as health, defense, attack speed, and penetration), properties (such as applying on-hit effects) and behaviors (such as prioritizing gods over other minions). They usually exist for a limited time before dying, and some pets will despawn automatically if their owner dies. Most pets can be attacked by the opposing team to damage and despawn them sooner. These abilities may have "Pet" listed as their ability type.
