The Best Gifts to Give Your Pet This Christmas
With the holiday season in full swing, gift-giving is at the top of almost everyone’s to-do list. While selecting gifts for all of your loved ones – two and four-footed alike – remember that December is also National Safe Toys and Gifts Month. This month-long observance aims to ensure all gift-givers keep safety on their minds when selecting toys for small children and pets.
This year, consider the following safe and fun toys for all of the furry recipients on your list.
5 of the Best Gifts to Give Your Pet This Christmas
1. Cold Weather Gear
2. Fresh Catnip
This fun treat is a great way to help your cat have some fun and burn energy. Purchase a pot of fresh-growing catnip at your local pet shop or pick up a seed packet to start your own indoors.
3. Snuffle Mats and Lick Pads
4. Squeakers, Crinkles, and Bells
Both dogs and cats enjoy chasing and playing with toys that squeak, crinkle, and make other noises. Be sure to choose toys that are appropriate for your dog’s size and chewing abilities. Also, watch your pets closely with squeaker toys, as the squeakers themselves can pose a choking risk.
5. Puzzle Toys
