7 Ways To Celebrate Love Your Pet Day

Love Your Pet Day is coming up February 20th! Our animal companions fill our lives and homes with love. They also offer us unconditional friendship, which is a truly precious gift. Fluffy and Fido really don’t ask for much in return, aside from TLC. Read on as a Green Bay, WI vet offers some advice on making your furry buddy feel special.

Playtime

Playing is of course lots of fun for pets, but it’s also really good for them. Running and jumping keep Fido and Fluffy in shape physically, and help them burn off excess energy. This also helps curb many bad pet behaviors, such as digging and chewing.

Veterinary Care

Is your pet overdue for an exam, vaccinations, or parasite control? Let this be a reminder to make an appointment. Healthy pets are happy pets!

New Digs

Dogs and cats are both very, very fond of their beauty sleep. A new bed will definitely brighten up your furry pal’s day! Fluffy may also enjoy some kitty furniture, while a doghouse would be a great gift for Fido.

Toys

Dogs and cats are both absolutely adorable when they are feeling frisky. Pick up a new plaything for your four-legged friend. If you want to save some money, go the DIY route. You can turn old towels or tee shirts into a rope toy for Fido. As for Fluffy, why not make her a box castle? This is a great project for kids!

Treats

If our furry patients could vote on their favorite things, we suspect that treats would be pretty high on the list. Offer your animal companion something special. Store bought treats are fine. Plain, cooked meat, fish, or chicken is also a good bet for both dogs and cats.

Photos

We never get tired of seeing adorable photos of our patients. Snap some cute pictures of your four-legged friend. Or, better yet, have someone help you get some great photos of you and your pet together.

Cuddles

At the end of the day, the best way to make your pet feel loved is just to pay attention to them. Talk to your furry best friend, pet them, and just hang out with them. Purrs and tail wags are two of life’s greatest gifts in our book!
