A GOOD PLACE TO FIND FUN PET GIFTS

These cat and dog calendars have toys and treats to count down to the holidays. PetSmart also has toys under $5, including the Hanukkah dog toy, this Merry & Bright reindeer and elf cat toy, and the mistletoe wood chew. Also, for each toy purchased from the new Chance & Friends holiday collection, $1-dollar goes to the non-profit PetSmart Charities. For more information, visit Petsmart.com
GIFT TO KEEP PETS HEALTHIER
Ear infections, which are often displayed by pawing at the ears, are the number one reason for unplanned vet visits, especially as the weather gets colder and rainier. This holiday season, give pets the gift of health. For that try Project Watson® Ear Wash and Ear Wipes for dogs, made with a gentle, p-H-balanced solution to help support cleaning and care and to keep the ears free from dirt and debris. Regularly cleaning your dog’s ears with Project Watson Ear Wash and Ear Wipes may help reduce the risk of infection and unwanted vet visits, keeping your dog happy and healthy.

GIFT SUGGESTION FOR PET PARENTS
Everyone loves their pets, but they do not always like fur sticking to our clothes all the time. For this, try Suavitel®. Designed for pet parents, Suavitel® Shed Shield is a new fabric conditioner that repels pet hair, versus detergent alone, while keeping clothes irresistibly soft and fresh. This way, pet parents can spend more time loving on their pets and less time worrying about fur mess. It really is the purrfect solution to help Saturday movie night cuddles be less stressful and more fun. For more information, visit www.suavitel.com
