Christmas music is playing, and holiday lights are going up. Are you getting excited about Christmas? The holiday season is an excellent time of year to bond more with your pets and give them a great holiday too. Our team here at Pine Creek Animal Hospital would like to share some ideas on ways to Celebrate Christmas with your pets.
Gift Ideas to Celebrate Christmas with Your Pets
A new warm bed. Pets dream too. Why not give your pet a nice cozy bed where they can dream away in comfort and warmth? There are many options for pet beds – from orthopedic to heated beds. You can check out the following links for dog beds or cat beds: The Best Cat Beds and 10 Different Types of Dog Beds.
Give them a sweater or booties for going out into the cold. It is an excellent idea to protect your pet from the harsh winter temperatures here in Gap, Pennsylvania. Animals exposed to cold, dry air, rain, or snow can suffer from chapped paws and itchy, flaking skin. A sweater and booties can help protect your pet when you take them out for a walk.
A fleece blanket. Let your pet snuggle up in a new, soft, cozy, and warm fleece blanket.
Toys. If you have a dog, your dog may enjoy having a trip to the pet store to pick out a toy. Cats usually love laser lights, crinkle toys, or wand toys.
Spa day. Why not treat your pet to a spa day?
Celebrate Christmas with Homemade Christmas Pet Treats
Are you in the baking mood? You can make tasty and healthy treats right in your kitchen. Your dog may love doggie donuts or peanut butter and glazed bacon treats. For the recipes, go to 10 Homemade Treats You Can Make For Your Dogs. Cats can be finicky, but they usually go crazy for treats too. You can try a grain-free cat treat homemade recipe.
Make a Family Christmas Card with Your Pets
Whether your pet will pose for a photo or not, family Christmas cards are fun to make. You can get all sorts of ideas for pet Christmas cards by searching online for “pet Christmas card ideas”.
Pet Safe Ornaments
The safest ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree are ones that will not break or shatter. You can shop online for shatterproof Christmas ornaments, or you can make your own. However, stay away from ornaments made from dough and salt. These are toxic to pets. Clay ornaments are much safer.
