If your best pal is your pet, then some holiday pampering may be in order.
3. Treat your furry friend to a day at the spa. Check your yellow pages or the internet for local listings.
4. Bake them a Puppy Cake. The cake mix for dogs.
5. Catsplay.com offers a wide variety of gift baskets for your pet, including dogs. Or make your own basket full of goodies.
6. Take your dog to the dog park for day of fun with other doggie friends. Quality time with your pet is the most important thing you can do for them.
7. Take them for a dental check-up. If you’ve never had your veterinarian check your pet’s teeth, your pet is long overdue. February is National Pet Dental Health Month.
8. Whatever you do on Valentines Day for your pet, remember to keep them away from the human Valentines goodies and gift wrap. This holiday often brings special cards and gifts decorated with ribbons, tinsel, or yarn. Although cats love to play with string and tinsel, these “toys” can cause serious damage to your cat’s intestines if swallowed. Make sure your special gifts stay out of your cat’s reach! Keep your dogs and cats away from chocolate also. A ten pound dog can come away with vomiting/diarrhea, hyperactivity, seizures and an abnormally elevated heart rate from just two ounces of baking chocolate or 20 ounces of milk chocolate.
