Best Lens for Pet Photography

Photography Equipment & Products - www.thephotoforum.com
Hey all. I got a camera last year and I'm in love with it and photography. I'm pretty sure it's a fairly basic camera being a Canon Rebel SL1, but it's been fantastic. I already have three lenses for it, but none so far are really professional lenses. I do have one that I love and am now using constantly. However, it does not zoom and so I have to get closer and further from the subject(Usually my animals), and I would, eventually, like to make a small business. That being said, I'm here to ask for opinions as far as what lens I should be looking for next. I figure I don't really want to be in an animals face for close ups when I'm unfamiliar with them. I also find that with my small animals, I have to sit a few feet away just to fit their whole bodies in as well. I can only imagine how far I'd have to be for, say, a large dog. Which might be okay unless the room is too small or someone needs to walk by or whatever else it may be.

I have to admit, I don't have much money to spend. I'll be keeping an eye out on the used lenses from where I got my camera. I probably won't be able to afford a lens right away, but I'd like to know about what I need to aim for. You also never know when they're going to have a used one or when it's going to sell. Opinions would be greatly appreciated!
