Most pet owners don’t need a holiday to spoil their pets with fun, satisfying, or comforting gifts. We give into these all the time, right? And yet, the holiday season is ripe with opportunity to give and spread joy to those we love. Our pets are usually the center of attention, so what could be better than showering them with holiday presents? If you need some ideas for what to give your pet this year, we’ve got you covered.

Starting With Gear

We know how well-loved our pet’s gear can become over time. If it’s been a little while since you invested in high-quality gear, now is the perfect time to add to your stock or replace worn items altogether. 

This could include personalized stainless steel water and food bowls, or an adjustable dining set just for your pet. We also really like the idea of improving a pet’s leash and harness repertoire with a high-quality leather or smooth rope leash that can be used for a long time. 

Additionally, a beloved pet always appreciates a new bed or hang out spot, and the gesture  truly shows how much you care about their comfort. Check out this Calming Squishy Bed for either cats or dogs, or invest in a self-heating therapeutic bed for your aging pet. 

Show the Love!

Some of the biggest pet trends out there today involve some form of cool technology, such as this automatic food dispenser or this cool Pet Cube With Laser Pointer. 

You could also give your pet any number or variety of the following:

Give Your Pet Some Treats

There’s no shortage of wonderful, delicious pet treats or dental chews on the market today. Whether you find some in a small artisan pet boutique or the big box pet stores, give your pet some flavor this holiday season. We always recommend trying your hand at DIY pet treats since you know exactly what your pet likes and what’s good for them. 

New Year, New You

Still looking for extra presents to give your pet this year? You could plan some special outings to share together, book a trip somewhere, or opt for a stay-cation. 

Lastly, the gift that keeps on giving this holiday season is the gift of preventive care. From dental care to parasite prevention, high-value nutrition to current vaccinations, give your pet the gift of wellness.

From all of us at Hanford Veterinary Hospital, have a happy holiday season with your pet!
