Holiday Gifts for Dogs

Season’s Greetings! At this time of year, many people are carefully picking out presents for their friends and family. We may not be much help in choosing something for your aunt, but we can offer some suggestions on what to get your dog! Read on as an Eau Claire, WI veterinarian lists some holiday gifts for Fido.


Toys aren’t just fun for Fido. They help keep him occupied and out of mischief, encourage him to stay active, and give him a healthy outlet for any angst or built-up energy he has. Pick up a few new playthings for your pooch, and snap some cute pics of him playing with them.


Even if Fido already has a comfy bed, he probably won’t mind having another napping spot to choose from. If you have a large breed or a senior dog, consider getting him an orthopedic bed.

New Wardrobe

Does your four-legged pal have thin fur? Is Fido a small dog, a puppy, or a senior? If so, your pooch may appreciate having a comfy jacket to wear when it’s cold out. A new leash, collar, or harness is also a good gift.


Chewing is actually good for Fido: it keeps his jaw muscles strong, and stimulates the flow of saliva. For puppies, it also helps soothe the pain of teething. Just stick with safe products. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.

Doggy Comforts

Sometimes small things can make a really big difference in life. Give your canine pal some things that will help keep him comfortable. For instance, elevated dishes help Fido eat more comfortably, while a heated or thermal bed will keep him warm on those chilly winter nights.

Wellness Plans

While Fido may not be too excited to see wellness plan paperwork, he’ll both look and feel better with regular veterinary care. Wellness plans help facilitate this by allowing you to budget your pup’s care. Ask your vet for more information.

Subscription Box

Did you know that you can sign Fido up for his very own subscription box? Think of it as the gift that keeps on giving. Watching your pooch discovering his new goodies whenever his mail arrives may be just as fun for you as it is for him!
