Are you still looking for that perfect gift for your four legged family members? Well look no further, we have compiled a list of 5 items for Canines, Felines and for both from our very own clinic as well some other establishments!!
Harness/Leash Set– These can be purchased at any local pet store and every canine can always use a new set! Remember that you pay for what you get. Make sure to look for durable material as well as complete comfort for your pet.
Starmark Chew Toys– These offer hours of distraction and fun for your canines and come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and flavors. Stop into The Pet Doctor to pick one up today!
Beds– Beds tend to wear out very quickly and comfort is always a must for your pet. We have found that some of the best options can be found at PetSmart, Petco, Sam’s Club, Costco, and Orvis.
Active Toys– Is your dog a high energy dog? Then you may want to consider buying them an agility course!! You can purchase them online or at most of your local pet stores! When spring rolls around you can set them up in your backyard and work with their discipline training as well as running out some of there pent up energy.
Older Dog Options– You need to think Orthopedic beds, Stairs to easily access furniture, joint supplements, etc. These are some options for your older canines that may need to have a little more comfort in their lives as they continue to age. They will definitely thank you, when they can rest comfortably at the end of the day!
Tree Houses– These are great for your cats to have a new place to sleep and explore as well as also using it for exercise purposes! We have found that your best option is Costco. A large cat tree house runs around $73.99 which is less than most small tree houses at other pet stores.
Litter Box/Scoop– We know that this may not be the most exciting gifts in the world, but it is always a good idea to switch out your litter boxes every so often. We recommend cleaning them at least once a month or more if you have multiple pets but its always a good idea to switch them out completely as they do see a lot of wear and tear!
Active Toys– Although regular mice and such are good idea for toys, we like to see pets a little more active. So try purchasing one of the many options out there for interactive toys. It keeps your pets mind and body healthy!
Scratching posts and boxes– Whether your feline is declawed or not they still like to be able to rub/scratch their little paws. So we recommend purchasing a nice scratching post or one of the many varieties of cardboard options as well! Bonus if you can find a Tree House with a built in Scratching post on it 🙂 (Note: They prefer for them to be as stable as possible. I purchased a door hanging one but it moved too much, once I laid it on the ground my little guy just cannot get enough!)
Stocking– Cats can be very fickle about the toys that they play with and to add on to your active toys you may want to consider picking up one of the pre-made stockings that you can purchase at any pet store, Target, or WalMart. They come with a variety of different toys at a very reasonable price. Your pet can choose out his or her favorite ones and they you can donate the rest to a local animal shelter!!
For both Canines & Felines:
