A dog wearing a Santa hatThe shopping season has begun in earnest, and regardless of whether your pets have been naughty or nice this year, we’re guessing they are on your shopping list. Before you hit the stores for Black Friday, or settle in on your couch for Cyber Monday, allow us to make some suggestions for fun and useful holiday gifts for pets.

Healthy Holiday Gifts for Pets

The following ideas make it easier than ever to keep your pet’s ongoing wellness at the top of your list:

For the Active Pet and Pet Owner

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean our pets should be slowing down. Keep them active and interested with these products geared toward pet health and wellness:

Safety First

A brand new collar and a shiny ID tag are classic holiday gifts for pets, but why not take it up a notch and have your pet microchipped as an added safety measure? Don’t forget to register the chip with your current contact information, and to update it whenever you move or change phone numbers.

The Gift of Comfort

Who doesn’t need a little extra comfort in their life? Your pet probably won’t turn down any of these cozy offers:

  • A Thundershirt or other compression-based device to help an anxious pet stay calm (with a money-back guarantee).
  • An orthopedic or heated pet bed can keep the senior pet in your life comfortable and reduce pain from arthritis or other joint issues.
  • This unique cat nap cocoon is the cutest way to help kitty stay toasty all winter long.
