Looking for the purrfect gift for the pet lover in your life this holiday season? Here are our top five suggestions!
1. Custom Gifts
You may already know this, but Etsy has fantastic gifts, all homemade, for every pet lover on your list. Check out these cute cat tree ornaments or these dog tree ornaments! Just be sure to check the Etsy shop’s estimated completion & shipment timeframe to ensure the gift will arrive in time for your holiday gift exchange.
2. Pet Starter Kits
Know someone who just got (or is getting) a dog?(FYI, the holidays are the WORST time to get a new pet! Just sayin’!) This fun and useful “New Dog Kit” from Trend Hunter will get them off on the right paw, with a dog toy, treats, waste bags, and a clicker for training.
3. At-Home Dental Kit
Now, we know no one really likes to brush their pets’ teeth. But did you know that periodontal disease is present in 80% of cats and dogs by the time they are 5 years old? Whether you like to or not, it is essential to your pet’s health that they receive daily oral care. Talk to your family vet if you have any questions about how to safely brush your dog or cat’s teeth. And get a toothpaste designed for pets!
4. DNA Test
Ever wonder what breeds make up your mixed mutt? Now you can find out, with the Wisdom Panel Breed Identification Test. Knowing your dog’s breed history can help you be aware of possible breed-specific medical issues in the future, and we’re always in favor of that!
5. Gift Certificate for Vet Care
Lastly, if your local veterinary clinic or emergency animal hospital offers gift certificates, this is the perfect gift for any pet owner! Most veterinary clinics can provide a gift certificate, gift card, or even place a credit on the recipient’s account for services to be incurred at a future date. Unexpected veterinary bills are a fact of life, and you can give the pet parent in your life the best gift of all the next time his or her pet needs care – peace of mind!
We hope these ideas inspire you to get a pawsome gift for the pet lover in your life!
