Our pets give us so much and ask for so little. Show them how much you love and appreciate them this Valentine’s Day. Need help figuring out what to get your furry loved one? Here are some simple but sweet ideas.
Chocolate and candy are the number one gift for Valentine’s Day every year! I mean, who doesn’t love getting sweets for Valentine’s Day? Unfortunately for dogs, chocolate is toxic to them. So what can you give your pet instead? Give them something yummy and healthy. My dogs loves WestPaw Air-Dried Bison treats. They are made from pasture raised Bison, contain no artificial flavors or preservatives, and are made in the USA. They are air-dried to preserve vitamins, minerals, proteins and of course flavor. Bison is a naturally lean meat and it is rich in taurine and omega 3 fatty acids, so it’s a healthy snack too (but don’t tell your dog). You can find these tasty treats in pet stores around the country or online. And if you’re feeling really creative, you can make a Valentine’s Day treat box for your pet by filling a heart-shaped box with some their favorite treats!
What better way to show your pet that you love them than by giving them something fun? West Paws makes all kinds of toys that are fun, innovative, and durable. Designed by dog enthusiasts, West Paws dog toys inspire play and stimulate your dog’s mind. Their puzzle dog toys are designed to dispense treats and reward your dog for their foraging behavior and focused play. Remember, a busy dog is a happy dog. West Paw dog toys are made in the USA. They are available at pet stores nationwide and online.
Lastly, give your pet the ultimate gift of love: good health. Because after all what’s more important than the gift of good health? So how do you do that?
• Don’t wait until your pets get sick before taking them to the veterinarian. Your pets should have regular checkups, at least annually, and every 6 months for pets older than 7 years.
• Make sure your pet stays up to date on the recommended immunizations to ensure they are protected against preventable illnesses.
• Protect your pet from parasites by using veterinary recommended parasite control products year-round.
• Keep your pet’s smile pearly white by brushing regularly with pet-safe tooth paste and by providing dental toys and treats to help keep their teeth healthy and clean
• Exercise is as important for your pet as it is for you. Exercise to keep your pet fit and healthy.
When you are thinking about what to get for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day, don’t forget about your four-legged friends. Show them how much you value and appreciate their unconditional love and companionship.
