There’s a pretty adorable pet holiday coming up. Love Your Pet Day is February 20th! Of course, we think pets deserve to be loved every day. That doesn’t mean you can’t spoil your furry friend a bit more than usual on this special day! Read on as a Mesa, AZ vet some cute ways to make your pet feel loved on this special day.

Treats

Snacks also help your pet feel safe, loved, and a bit spoiled. Stick with healthy options, and don’t go overboard. If you like cooking, you can also make your furry best friend something. Look online for recipes that use safe, healthy ingredients.

Playtime

Playing helps keep pets fit and active, and also helps keep them from getting bored. Plus, it’s cute to watch. Spend a few minutes playing with Fido or Fluffy. A new toy would also not be inappropriate.

Cuddles

At the end of the day, the best way to make your pet feel loved is to simply spend time with them. Even giving your dog a forehead scritch as you pass, or petting your cat as she’s sleeping will help them feel loved and safe. These simple touches really are very important. Remember, you’re the apple of your pet’s eye, and the center of their universe!

New Digs

A new piece of pet furniture would be a great gift. However, you don’t have to break the bank here. You’ll find lots of ideas online for DIY projects. Turn an old stepladder into a cat tower, or make Fido a bed out of pallets or an old table turned upside down. This can be a great project for kids!

Grooming

Is your dog getting a bit stinky? Are you finding cat fur everywhere? Brushing and bathing your pet will also help keep them comfortable, which is very important. Carve out time for a pet beauty session.

Pets That Need Love

Sadly, not all animals have humans to love them, spoil them, and give them toys or treats. Consider making a donation to an animal shelter or rescue. Or, better yet, consider volunteering, adopting, or even fostering. Even helping one more pet feel safe and loved can make a big difference in the world.
