5 Unbeatable Gifts to Give Your Pet This Year

2019-12-13

As the holidays approach, you’ve probably switched into Santa-mode and started making a gift list and checking it twice. And like most pet parents, you probably buy your pets something extra special to thank your best friends for being oh-so-amazing! If you’re still deciding on the perfect present for your pets this year, we have some unbeatable ideas that your pets are sure to appreciate!

1. Dental Health

Pet kisses make the world go round. Nothing beats fresh breath and enjoying those puppy smooches and kitty kisses. To keep those kisses coming for years and years, give your pet the gift of dental health.

Your pet’s mouth is a window to their health and happiness. From broken teeth and tartar to bad breath, regular cleanings and a dental exam can help your pet feel their best. Dental cleanings also prevent pain and cavities.

2. Mental Stimulation

Bust that boredom and provide your pet with plenty of play and mental stimulation. This can improve your pet’s memory, mood, and mental health. Mental stimulation can increase happiness, reduce hyperactivity and stress (and the destruction associated with them), and prevent mental deterioration.

If you’re looking for some ways to engage your pet in more play, try hiding treats around the house, purchase a treat toy, or teach your cat or dog new tricks.

You can also brighten your dog’s day with a surprise walk or outing. Open the blinds and let your curious kitty take in all that winter has to offer.

3. Preventive Care & Vaccinations

The greatest gift your pet could ask for if they just knew how, is preventative care. Preventative care can lengthen and improve your pet’s life. It can keep them running, jumping, and living their best life longer.

Consider treating your pet to

  • A wellness checkup
  • Annual vaccinations: rabies, bordetella, leptospirosis, Lyme
  • Heartworm, flea, and tick prevention

4. Microchipping & an Updated ID

Peace of mind and peace on Earth: give your pet the gift of a safe return home. If your pet wanders off or slips out, they’re much more likely to make it home if they are microchipped. This simple procedure can make a life-changing impact.

And if your pet is already microchipped, use this as an opportunity to update your contact information connected to their chip.

If you’re planning on getting your cat or dog a new collar, don’t skip the ID tag. This is a simple way to ensure whoever finds your pet can give you a call to help them find their way home.

5. Time

Of all the presents you can gift your pet this year, time is by far the most precious. Spending quality time with your pet helps strengthen your bond and helps your pet feel loved and cared for. And best of all, you don’t have to dip into your Christmas savings to give this gift.

Make time to play with your pet or curl up on a blanket while watching your favorite Christmas movie. Take some time to pet your dog or cat and tell them how awesome they are. Or just spend a bit more time petting your best friend near your Christmas tree.

‘Tis the Season to Give Your Pet the Gifts that Matter

Our pets are family, and the holidays just aren’t the same without seeing their bright eyes and beautiful faces. As you’re preparing your gift list this year, don’t skip those presents that really matter: the gift of health, time, and compassion.

Cross these off the list and give us a call to schedule your pet’s dental exam and wellness check. Need some advice on preventative care for your pet? We can help from diet to a healthy exercise routine. We’re here for you and your pet.
