Love Your Pet Day

February 20th is Love Your Pet Day! Of course, we think pets should feel loved every day of the year. Our animal companions truly brighten up our lives with their unconditional love, endless cuddles, and silly antics. This is a great time to make your furry pal feel pampered! An Eau Claire, WI vet offers some tips on how to do that below.


Toys are a great option for any pet. If you have a kitty, try something modern, like a remote-controlled mouse or a mechanical ‘swimming fish.’ As for Fido, he may like an automated ball launcher, or perhaps a cute plushy toy. If you have a smaller animal, like a bunny, buy or make your furry friend some chew toys.


Treats are another great across-the-board option. Store-bought ones are fine, of course. Fluffy may enjoy a can of tuna or some shredded deli meat, while Fido can have some plain, cooked meat, fish, or chicken or, for this special occasion, a little bit of bacon. Smaller pets all have their own dietary needs, so ask your vet for recommendations.


Comfy beds are always a great way to pamper pets. If you have a dog or a senior pet, consider getting them an orthopedic bed. It doesn’t matter if your fuzzy friend already has a bed. It’s always good to have options!


Many pets want nothing more than to spend time with their humans. A fun play session will definitely brighten up your furry bff’s day!


Snap a cute photo of your four-legged friend being their adorable self. If possible, schedule this photo shoot for dusk or dawn, when the light has a golden glow. You may also want to try downloading a pet camera app.

Spread The Love

Sadly, many pets are still looking for someone to love them and give them a forever home. If you’re ready to adopt a new pet, this is a great time to do it. Otherwise, consider making a donation to a local animal shelter or charity. When it comes to helping animals, every little bit counts!


Many pets are quite the little cuddlebugs. Pay lots of attention to your animal companion, and offer plenty of ear scritches and belly rubs!
