With the holidays approaching, many of us are preparing by decorating our homes, planning those yummy holiday meals, and shopping for our loved ones. Fido and Fluffy are part of the family too, and while they might not understand what the holidays are all about, they’ll definitely appreciate a few gifts of their own. In this article, your local vet Woodland Hills goes over a few great options for holiday gifts for your furkids.
Even if she’s been a bit naughty, Fluffy will definitely appreciate her own stocking. You can add catnip mice, wand toys, special treats, cans of tuna, and little plastic balls for her to immediately push under the couch or stove. Cat towers, window perches, and scratching posts are also great gifts for kitties. If you prefer to give a gift that will stay fresh all year, then try growing your own catnip or cat grass, and dole out a little jar at a time. Kitty beds are another great gift choice. We all know how much cats like to sleep! If your kitty is a more studious type, she may enjoy watching some informative documentaries about birds or fish.
Man’s Best Friend loves to play! There are plenty of great toys you can get your dog. Chew toys are always popular among our canine friends. Puzzle toys are excellent choices for any pooch, but are particularly great for dogs that tend to get into trouble when left alone. Tug-of-War is one of Fido’s favorite games, so a good rope toy is always a solid choice. Senior dogs may appreciate a new orthopedic bed or a doggy ramp, while puppies may be happier with squeak toys and or tennis balls.
If you’re trying to restrict your spending, you can still get your furry friend some great gifts without breaking your budget. Old tee shirts can be cut and braided to make rope toys or wrapped around old water bottles to make cheap toys for Fido. You can also put a doggy treat inside an old cereal box, plastic butter dish, or tennis ball. As for Fluffy, she may love a kitty condo or home of her own, which you can make out of cardboard boxes. Some other great choices are to sew your own catnip toys out of old socks, or make wand toys out of sewing scraps and a young tree branch.
We here at your local vet clinic Woodland Hills want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season. We look forward to serving all of your pet care needs in 2015.
