Christmas is just around the corner and a new poll indicates that many canine and feline family members are likely to find something under the tree this year. The Associated Press recently conducted a poll that reported that approximately 53% of pet owners are planning to purchase something for their animals this holiday season. Spoiling your pet rotten over the holidays with the latest fashionable doggy sweater or crystal encrusted collar is certainly enjoyable, but purchasing a more beneficial gift this holiday is also something to consider.
Treats and toys are a great way to spoil and reward your pup this holiday season, but some have more benefits than others when it comes to the health of your pet. Retailers like vetdepot have a wide selection of products for your pet. There are a lot of treats available that are both tasty and contribute to the health of your pet’s teeth, coat, joints, or overall health. Greenies dental treats or CET Chews are both great choices for giving the gift of clean teeth and a yummy snack to your pet.
It’s also the time of year to remember those that are less fortunate, including our four-legged friends. Be thankful for the lovable companion you have and maybe give the gift of a small donation to a local animal shelter to help those furry creatures not lucky enough to have a loving family. Pet food, blankets, or monetary donations are almost always warmly welcomed at most shelters.
Happy Holidays to you and your pet!
