Holiday Gifts for Pets

Do you give your pet holiday gifts? If so, you’re not the only one! Many people include their furry pals in their seasonal celebrations. After all, pets are family too! In this article from Fairfield Animal Hospital, your local Cypress, TX vet clinic, you’ll read about some great gift options for the furkids.

Dogs

While classic doggy toys like chew sticks and rope toys will no doubt get Fido’s furry tail going, there are some really cute modern playthings you can get your pooch. If your four-legged buddy loves playing fetch, consider getting him an automated ball launcher. Senior dogs may love the comfort and support of a good orthopedic doggy bed. Got unused space in your yard? Spoil your furry pal by building him a doggy play zone! Of course, if you like cooking, you can also whip up a yummy batch of homemade dog treats for your canine buddy. Look online for some great recipe options.

Cats

Did you know that many cats prefer to drink running water? If your furball likes sipping from the faucet, she may enjoy a kitty fountain. Automated laser pointers can also make great gifts for Fluffy. Another cute idea is to buy or make your furry friend a kitty hammock or window seat. Of course, standard kitty gifts like new beds, cat furniture, cans of tuna, and catnip toys are all great options for cats! Last but not least, don’t forget to give your feline buddy a box or two after everyone’s done unwrapping presents.

Little Furballs

Hamsters, rabbits, gerbils, Guinea pigs, and other small pets can enjoy the holidays too! Cardboard, wood, and paper items can all make great gifts for little furballs. Just be sure to use safe, non-toxic materials that are free of print, dye, paint, and varnish. The cardboard tubes from toilet paper or paper towel rolls can be upcycled into some really cute toys for pocket pets. Another great option is to make tunnels out of large cardboard tubes or PVC pipes. Many small animals enjoy hidey-holes, so consider getting your tiny pal a cozy new house. Better yet, get your furry buddy a bigger cage!
