Holiday Gifts for Fido

Holiday Gifts for Fido

Are you still working on your holiday shopping this year? Picking just the right gifts for your loved ones can be tricky! Don’t forget to get a few things for your canine buddy. Read on as a Sayville, NY vet lists some great gift ideas for dogs.

Toys

Toys are a great gift for our four-legged pals. Classic doggy toys, like rope toys and chew toys, are fine. You can also get Fido something new, like an automated laser pointer.

Treats

If there’s one thing that’s bound to get that tail moving, it’s treats. You can fill your pet’s stocking with store-bought treats, or make your own. Just be sure to only offer Fido safe, suitable snacks. Ask your vet for specific advice.

Bed

A comfy new bed is another great doggy gift! Remember to get some pictures of Fido’s first nap in his new bed!

Automated Ball Launcher

Does Fido love chasing tennis balls? Why not get him an automated ball launcher? (Note: these are not recommended for large breeds, as tennis balls can choke big dogs.)

Doggy Clothes

If your pet has a thin coat, get him a doggy sweater to wear on frigid days. Fido may also appreciate some booties. Just be sure that your pet’s clothes fit well, and don’t have small parts or dangling pieces he may try to eat.

Pawdicure Kit

While Fido may not enjoy getting his nails done as much as people do, keeping your pet’s claws trimmed is very important. Pick up some clippers with sensors, and perhaps some paw balm or wax.

Elevated Dishes

Did you know that raised dishes are better for dogs than bowls on the floor? Fido has to splay his legs and strain his neck a bit to eat off the floor. Elevated doggy dishes are much more comfortable for him. This is a great gift for senior dogs.

Pet Ramps

Do you have a small dog, or a senior pooch? Pet ramps or stairs will help Fido climb on and off beds and couches, and get in and out of the car.

Doggy Massage

Massages can be just as soothing and beneficial for dogs as they are for people. Treat your pup to an appointment with a pet masseuse.
