Translation:I consulted with him in regards to a new pet.
Also they make a mistake that many people make of putting an s on the end of the word regard. It is "in regard to" -- not "in regards to." I think this started because people think of the phrase "give my regards to" (meaning "my greetings/ good wishes"). Compare similar constructions; there is never an s (in connection with, with respect to, in relation to, etc.).
