3 Last-Minute Holiday Gifts for Your Furry Family Member
With Christmas time right around the corner, you've likely been very busy making your list and checking it twice. If you are having trouble picking out the right gift for your dog or cat, we can help. The veterinarians at Alpine Veterinary Hospital want all companion animals to stay safe this holiday. That is why we made the decision to talk about some excellent — though untraditional — gift suggestions for pets. We're also here to lend a paw if your pet needs to see a veterinarian in Concord in the upcoming weeks. If you're looking for some last-minute gift ideas for your furry family member, keep reading.
Have The Microchipped
Did you know that about 10 million cats and dogs get lost in the United States each year? If your pet ever becomes one of the millions of missing animals, you'll be more likely to find them if you've had them microchipped. Having a pet microchipped is quick and easy, and doing so provides life-long peace of mind and protection.
Stuff Their Stocking with Parasite Preventives
If you think fleas, ticks, and other external parasites are just a nuisance, you couldn't be more wrong. They’re bad for your pet’s health, as well. If your pet isn't on a parasite preventive, Christmas is an excellent time to give them the gift of improved health and less itchy skin! When you buy parasite preventives from us, you will never need to worry about product safety or effectiveness.
Give the Gift of Health with a Wellness Exam
We understand that visiting a vet's office for a physical exam probably doesn't sound like an excellent present to your pet. But whether they like it or not, bringing them in for routine care is the key to maintaining their health and happiness. If you are looking for a way to end 2021 with a clean bill of health for your dog or cat and start the upcoming year off on the right paw, scheduling a wellness assessment is a great option.
This holiday season, make your four-legged best friend’s health a primary concern. Give us a call today to make an appointment.
