Pet Gifts? Look No Further Than Our 2019 Guide
Even a cursory Google search for ‘pet gifts’ will produce over 800 million possible results. No wonder finding the right gift for your pet can feel nearly impossible!
Luckily, you have two things working for you. Number one, is that most pets are pretty happy with just about anything. Number two, is that your friends at Rocklin Ranch Veterinary Hospital have culled through piles of research to suggest just the right pet gifts this year. And, they’re all just a click away…
Gifts for Dogs
No matter the age or breed, you have an adorably smart pup. They may have everything everything they need, but there are likely things out there they’d go crazy for. We recommend giving any of these a try this holiday season:
- Furbo Dog Camera & Treat Dispenser
- Wooly Snuffle Mat
- Hyper Pet Interactive Toy
- Nerf Dog Ball Blaster
- Tire Flyer
- Neater Feeder
- Pet Umbrella
- Buster Activity Mat
- RuffWear Harness
- Cooling Memory Foam Dog Bed
- Doggie Life Jacket (great for next year’s camping trips!)
Be sure to rotate pet toys out of circulation when signs of wear and tear arise
Gifts for Cats
The best pet gifts for the sweet cats in your life answer to their environmental needs and predatory instincts. They also sleep a lot, so having a comfy, supportive bed can make all the difference. Any of the following options make great pet gifts this winter:
- Shag Cuddler
- Cool Cat Gym
- The Ripple Rug
- Cat Scratcher & Lounge
- Cat Roller Case/Backpack (good for some small dogs, too)
- Water Fountain
- Cat Fort
- Cat Camera & Laser Pointer
What They Really Need
If your cat or dog already has enough toys or gear, we encourage you to consider the more abstract gifts they could benefit from.
Your pet’s health is one of life’s greatest gifts, and you probably take their safety and wellness very seriously. A microchip may not seem like a present, but it really is one of the best pet gifts. Likewise, having a dental cleaning and exam paid for in advance is a terrific incentive. Lastly, consider pet insurance as a way to provide for your pet when they need it the most.
From our veterinarians and staff members, have a safe and happy holiday season with your best friend!
