Holiday Gift Ideas for Your Pets

Everyone enjoys giving gifts during the holidays – there’s something special about seeing a loved ones’ face light up when receiving a gift. To pet owners, the same is true in giving gifts to our furry friends. But, it’s easy to break the bank when it comes to gift giving, so spend a moment thinking about what your pet really needs…and then splurge with a couple of small, special treats!

Beds. Check your pet’s bed – is it a little frayed, worn out, or looking a little bedraggled? A soft new bed might be appreciated by your pup or kitty.

Toys! Toys wear out, get chewed apart, or simply become boring. Consider adding a couple of new toys to your pet’s repertoire. A bonus with new toys is that your pets will be distracted from all the temptations of decorations, gift wrap and ribbon.

Grooming Tools. Grooming is great way to spend quality time with your pet on a daily basis. Try a new grooming mitt or glove to remove shedding hair from your cat, or new bottles of dog shampoo and conditioner for a special spa day with your dog.

Toothbrush. Consider purchasing a new toothbrush for your furry friend. Your pet may not thank you, but your pocketbook will if your pet’s teeth stay healthy and sparkling clean!

Collar, Harness, or Leash. Has your pet’s collar, harness, or leash seen better days? Maybe a festive collar is in order to include your pet in holiday fun!

Treats! The holidays would not be complete without a few treats for your pet! Make sure they are healthy treats and don’t overindulge by adding too many calories to your pet’s diet. As a double bonus, look for treats that will be healthy for your pet’s teeth by looking for the Veterinary Oral Health Council’s seal of approval.

Time and Cuddles. During the hustle and bustle of the holidays, pets can be overlooked as we dash out to visit family and friends leaving our furry friends behind. Set aside some quiet time each day to pamper your cat or dog. Consider a long walk, an extended play session, and extra cuddle time with your pets.
