Holiday Gifts for Dogs

The holiday season is ramping up quickly. Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Or are you waiting for the last minute? No matter what your plan of attack is, don’t forget about your canine buddy. Fido definitely deserves a gift or two of his own! Read on as a local Bee Cave, TX vet lists some great gifts for dogs.


Making sure Fido has a comfy doggy bed is very important! Senior dogs and large breeds may appreciate the extra support of an orthopedic bed. Smaller pups, on the other hand, might like beds with raised sides. If your pooch likes to stomp his bed down, he might love a beanbag. If you’re working with a tight budget, look up DIY options. You can find some great ideas online!


Toys aren’t just fun for Fido: they’re also great for him, both mentally and physically. Offer your furry buddy some fun new playthings. You can get him a classic doggy toy, like a rope toy, or try something new, like a mechanical ball launcher.

Homemade Treats

If there’s one thing that dogs get excited about, it’s food! Store-bought treats are fine, but you can also make Fido’s snacks. Just be sure to stick to ingredients that are safe for your canine pal.

Mechanical Ball Launchers

Is chasing tennis balls your pup’s favorite thing ever? Get Fido a mechanical ball launcher. This is a great way to keep your pooch both active and entertained. (Note: these aren’t recommended for large breeds, as big dogs can choke on the tennis balls which are used in many launchers.)

Doggy Comforts

If your canine pal is older, or has chronic pain, he may enjoy a soothing pet massage. Pet ramps or stairs may also be beneficial. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.

Puppy Play Zone

Do you have a yard for your four-legged friend to run and play in? Why not get Fido a doghouse, or a kiddie pool to splash around in on hot days?


Does your furry friend still need to work on his obedience training? Get Fido some classes with a professional trainer. This is one gift that will definitely keep on giving!

Happy Holidays to you and your families from all of us here at Crystal Mountain Animal Hospital, your Bee Cave, TX veterinary clinic. Please feel free to call us anytime.
