Holiday Gifts for Dogs

Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Or are you just getting started? Either way, don’t forget to pick up a few things for your canine buddy! Read on as a Marshall County, MS vet lists some great holiday gifts for Fido.


A new bed would be a great gift for your faithful friend. If Fido is a large breed or senior, get him an orthopedic bed. Small pooches and pups with thin fur may enjoy heated beds. It doesn’t matter if your pet already has a bed. It’s good to have options!


Toys will definitely get that cute tail going! Playing isn’t just fun for Fido, it’s also great for him, both mentally and physically. Classic dog toys, like rope pulls and tennis balls, are always a good bet. You can also get something more modern, like an automated laser pointer.


Does your pooch have thin fur? Get Fido a jacket to wear when the next cold snap comes through.

Kiddie Pool

Many of our canine patients love splashing and playing in water. A kiddie pool would be a great gift for your dog! Then again, you may want to wait a few months for this one.

Mechanical Ball Launcher

Fido is always super cute when he is chasing after tennis balls. A ball launcher is a great gift! Just choose one that is the right size for your pooch.


Do you have a fenced yard for Fido to chase squirrels around in? A doghouse would be a perfect addition! Choose an insulated one, as this will offer your pup protection from heat and cold. Avoid pressure-treated wood, though: the chemicals used to process it are toxic to dogs.


If there is one thing that is bound to get Fido’s tail going, it’s a yummy snack. Store-bought treats are fine, but you can also make your own. You’ll find some great recipe ideas online! Just be sure to stick to ingredients that are safe for dogs. Ask your vet for more information.

Pupscription Box

Want to really pamper your furry friend? Sign him up for his own doggy subscription box. You also get to enjoy watching Fido’s reaction when his mail comes. That’s bound to be adorable!
