Safe Treats for Your Pets’ Stockings

Since many pet owners consider their dogs and cats to be an important part of their families, it is only natural to include them in holiday celebrations with family and friends. Hanging stockings for pets is a very popular way to give them some holiday fun, and this can also be a great distraction for curious dogs and cats as your family is opening presents on Christmas morning. To keep your pets healthy and happy, it is important to know how to choose stocking stuffers wisely. 5 Points Animal Hospital wants you and your family to have the best holiday season ever this year, which is why we would like to share with you some suggestions for safe treats to put in your pets’ stockings.

Homemade Dog Treats

If you love baking Christmas cookies every year, why not make a few healthy treats for your dog as well? If you are not sure how to make homemade dog treats, you do not have to look very far to learn more about it. According to Healthy Paws, you can find tons of recipes for dog treats online with many different types of main ingredients, including peanut butter, pumpkin, oats, and bacon. You can even find recipes for homemade doggie breath mints.

To-Go Water Bowl

A must for active dog owners, a to-go water bowl snaps onto your dog’s leash or your belt loop to easily keep him hydrated when you go for long walks. This essential stocking stuffer can be found in every imaginable color, and many of these bowls are BPA-free. You will want to look for a bowl with a screw-on lid that will keep the water from spilling during your adventurous outings with your dog.

Fun Toys for Cats and Dogs

One of the favorite playtime activities of cats is chasing and pouncing on whatever they can find. A top choice of cat health experts, a feather dangler is guaranteed to make even the most particular cats happy. With an arrangement of feathers dangling from a stick, this festive toy might bring out your cat’s tiger instinct. This toy can be found in countless color and style varieties to entice your cat. If you are looking for dog toys, consider an organic rope toy. Dogs love to chew on this type of toy; however, not every chew toy is a safe choice. You can feel confident about your dog’s safety when you stuff his stocking with an organic rope toy since it is made from the safest materials that will not harm your dog as he happily chews on it for hours at a time.

5 Points Animal Hospital would like to wish you and your pets a very happy holidays. For more of our recommendations for safe treats for your pets’ stockings, contact us to learn more about the best stocking stuffers for your cats and dogs.
