What to Get Your Dog for the Holidays


The holidays are here at last, and our veterinarian can help you find the perfect gift for your pup!

For dog owners, dogs aren’t just pets; they’re a part of the family! As you are doing your holiday shopping this year, you don’t want to leave anyone you love off your list, and if you are like most dog owners, your dog is probably no exception! Finding the perfect gift for your dog can be tricky, but there are plenty of great options out there. Here are a few of our favorites:

#1. Dog Subscription Box

The dog subscription box is akin to the jelly of the month club; it’s the gift that keeps on giving! Your dog will love getting treats, toys and other items in the mail that are just for them! This is a great option for all dogs, but if you have a dog who chews through toys quickly, these dog subscription boxes can ensure that you always have plenty of toys around.

#2. Treadmill for Dogs

With the temperature getting colder, it becomes harder and harder to walk your dog, but just because it’s cold out, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need to exercise! A doggy treadmill is a great option because it keeps your dog healthy and prevents you from having to brave the cold.

#3. Reflective Gear

The days are getting shorter and shorter, and if you have a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. job, it’s probably dark by the time you get home at night. However, after a long day at home, your dog is probably itching to get outside. Stay safe and visible while walking at night by getting your pup some reflective gear. It’s probably a good idea to purchase some reflective gear for yourself as well!

#4. Dog Bed

At the end of the day, your dog just wants to lay somewhere cozy and comfortable, just like you! Whether you allow your dog to sleep on the couch or your bed, you can bet that they will appreciate having their own place to curl up. Plus, getting your dog their own bed could free up some room for you to actually stretch out for once on your own bed!

#5. Pet Insurance

This may not be the most exciting gift, but it can really come in handy in an emergency. Pet insurance can help to cover costly emergencies, so if your dog swallows a tennis ball or steals a bag of dark chocolates off of the counter, your dog can get the care they need, and you won’t have to break the bank. And since pet insurance works by reimbursing you, you won’t have to worry about which insurance your vet will take.

Don’t settle for fatty treats or subpar toys for your dog this holiday season! Get them something that will keep them healthy and happy. Our veterinarian proudly services East Meadow and the surrounding areas, including North Bellmore, and we will treat your pet as if they were ours! We hope that you and your dog have a happy holiday season, and please feel free to contact us about any of your veterinary needs.
