Love Your Pet Day is coming up on Monday, February 20th. We’re pretty sure that all of our furry patients would love to celebrate this special day with their humans. Love is the secret ingredient to any good pet care routine. A Bellevue, WA vet offers some ways to make your pet feel loved in this article.
Little luxuries can make a big difference to Fido and Fluffy. A comfy new bed is always appreciated. Kitties may also enjoy things like cat towers and scratching posts, while Fido may prefer a doghouse or some suitable chews.
A yummy snack will also brighten up your pet’s day and meake them feel loved. Just don’t go overboard, and stick with safe options. Ask your vet for specific advice.
Toys are crucial for providing enrichment and stimulation. Pets all have their own tastes, so try a few different things and see what your animal friend likes best. Be sure to stick with things that are the right size and material for your four-legged friend.
To be fair, many of our canine patients would be less than thrilled to find this one on the list. However, Fido will be more comfortable with clean, shiny fur. As for Fluffy, while she’s pretty good at this aspect of self-care, she could also use some beauty-care help. Regular brushings will keep your kitty’s coat soft and smooth.
We can form incredibly strong bonds with our animal friends. Communication is a big part of that, as it is with people. Talk to Fido and Fluffy! Even if they don’t know what you’re saying, they’ll know you’re connecting with them. That’s the important thing!
This one really applies more to dogs, of course: cats tend to train us. Fido actually enjoys learning new things, and he’s adorably proud of himself when he’s soaking up praise and treats for following a command. Work with your canine buddy daily.
The best way to make your animal friend feel loved is to just pay attention to them. Your furry friend’s world revolves around you. Love and affection are both very important. Even giving your pet a quick pat on the head as you go by will help them feel safe and happy.
