It’s hard to believe, but the holidays are upon us again. If you’re struggling to find the purr-fect holiday gift for your pets, fret no more. I’ve compiled a list of some paw-sitively perfect gift ideas to help make shopping for your furry loved ones and their people less ruff this holiday season.
Pet treats are always at the top of every pet’s wish list. Instead of giving just any old treat, give them something tasty and good for their health. WHIMZEES® by Wellness® Holiday Dental Chews are a great natural long-lasting chew that reduces plaque, tartar and bad breath to support healthy teeth and gums. They have no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, gluten, or grains and best of all dogs LOVE them!
Toys are another great gift for your pets. Dogs and cats love to play, and toys bring out the puppy and kitten in your pet. Toys not only keep your pets entertained, but they also help keep your pet busy, so they stay out of trouble when you are away from home.
Brightkins™ makes several “Puzzle” toys that stimulate your pet’s mind and can keep them entertained for hours. Dogs love their Pupstrami Surprise! Treat Puzzle. Your pooch has to spin the puzzle pieces to find the treats hidden in 12 different compartments. It prevents boredom by keeping your dog busy and engaged looking for treats. It can also be used as a slow feeder for dogs that eat too quickly.
Don’t forget your feline friends, they like treats and toys too. Cat treats, catnip toys, wands, scratchers, and tunnels all make fun gifts and stocking stuffers for kitties.

A Good Night’s Sleep
Everyone knows pets love to nap. What could be better than a cozy new bed for your pet? Pamper your dog or cat with a new bed sure to give them sweet dreams.
Small pets are no different. Spruce up your small pet’s home with carefresh® pillow-like bedding. carefresh® small animal bedding is made using comfyfluff™, a super soft, ultra-absorbent material made from 100% reclaimed natural fiber.

And for a limited time comes in fun special edition pet-safe holiday colors: festive red, green, blue, and white.

Who doesn’t like to eat? Nextrition premium dog food is cold pressed to preserve nutrients, vitamins, and taste! The cold press process creates a highly digestible food that breaks down easily in the stomach and improves your dog’s digestive health. It provides nutrition comparable to raw food but is conveniently shelf stable and does not require refrigeration. Available in three tasty flavors your dog will love: salmon, chicken, and lamb.
One of the most important gifts you can give your pet is the gift of good health. Make sure your pets receive regular check-ups. All pets should be seen at least once a year, and pets older than 7 years old should be seen every 6 months. These examinations allow your veterinarian to ensure your pet is protected against preventable diseases and helps them stay ahead of potential health problems. Routine veterinary care is the best way to ensure your pets will live a long and healthy life.
Need a gift for a child that loves animals or wants to be a veterinarian when they grow up? Get them the purr-fect picture book. Lisette the Vet is about a smart, young girl who loves animals and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. When something happens to the new class pet, Lisette must overcome her fears to save the day.
Hopefully these holiday gift ideas for your furry loved ones will help make this holiday buying season easier, less stressful and bring a wag, or purr, to your pets.
