August 10th is Spoil Your Dog Day! Of course, for some of our canine buddies, every day is Spoil Your Dog Day! We love seeing pets being pampered! Of course, it really doesn’t take very much to get Fido’s tail going. Here, a Pasadena, MD vet lists some great ways to pamper your furry bff.
Snacks are a great way to brighten up Fido’s day, and make him feel loved and happy. Plain, cooked meat, fish, or poultry, without the skin, bones, or fat, is always a good option. You can also give your furry buddy some deli meat, hot dog pieces, or a little bacon and sausage. If you want to offer your canine pal a cold treat, pick him up some doggie ice cream.
Toys are very important to your dog’s health and well-being. They keep Fido active and occupied, especially when he is home alone. They also provide him with beneficial mental stimulation, which is important for your pet’s mental health. Pick up a few new playthings for your four-legged friend.
A comfy doggy bed is a great way to pamper your pooch! We recommend orthopedic beds for senior dogs and large breeds. Smaller pups may prefer bolstered beds.
Does Fido have a yard to chase squirrels around in? Make your furry pal’s outdoor time more fun by getting him a doghouse. A kiddie pool or sandbox can also help get that cute tail going.
We know, given the option, Fido would knock bathtime right off this list. However, even if your canine friend doesn’t really like getting bathed, he’ll still enjoy feeling clean and soft. Dental care and nail trims are also important.
Fido would probably rather go to a doggy park than visit us, but he’ll both look and feel better with regular veterinary care. Schedule your furry friend’s next appointment.
Dogs are very loyal and loving, and want nothing more than to spend time with their humans. Carve out some extra time for your pooch. Take Fido to a park or a pet-friendly café, or indulge him with an extra-long play session. Our canine companions are wonderful friends and companions, and deserve to be pampered!
