Celebrating Spoil Your Dog Day

Celebrating Spoil Your Dog Day

There’s a special doggy holiday coming up. August 10th is Spoil Your Dog Day. While our canine buddies deserve to be pampered every day, this is a great time to score some extra tail wags. In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet offers tips on pampering your pup on his special day.

Toys

Toys are a great way to pamper your pet! Pick up a few new playthings for your canine pal, and take time to play with him.

Bed

A new doggy bed is a great gift for your furry best friend. Older dogs may like orthopedic beds, which offer extra support. Younger pups may like bolstered beds.

Treats

Fido will definitely appreciate a yummy snack. Store bought treats are fine. You can also give your canine friend cooked, plain meat, fish, or poultry, without the skin, bones or fat. If you want to go all-out, consider making snacks. Look online for recipes that use dog-friendly ingredients.

Automated Ball Launcher

Does Fido love running after tennis balls? Consider getting him an automated ball launcher.

Adventures!

Man’s Best Friend loves to explore new places. Take Fido to a park you haven’t visited yet, or explore a new trail with him. Just be sure to put safety first. Keep your furry friend leashed, except in fenced in areas. Also, make sure he is microchipped, wearing ID tags, and current on his shots and vaccinations.

Bath Time

We know, if Fido had the choice, he’d probably scratch this one right off the list. However, your four-legged friend will both look and feel better with proper grooming.

Belly Rubs

At the end of the day, Fido just wants to hang out with his human buddies. Carve out some quality time with your furry pal. Indulge him with a long walk or play session, and offer lots of ear scritches and belly rubs.

Doghouse

Does your pooch have a yard to play in? Why not get Fido a doghouse? Your canine companion may also appreciate a kiddie pool or sandbox.

Doggy Spa Day

Is your furry buddy starting to get stiff and sore with age? Fido may appreciate a soothing massage or a warm-water swim.

Please contact Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, anytime. We are always happy to help!
