Celebrating Love Your Pet Day

There’s a special pet holiday coming up. Love Your Pet Day is February 20th! While our furry companions deserve to feel loved every day, this is a great chance to pamper your beloved pet. Read on as a Michigan City, IN vet suggests some great ways to make your pet feel extra loved.


It doesn’t take much to get that tail going. Your canine buddy will definitely be thrilled to get a yummy snack. We don’t usually condone giving Fido fatty foods, like bacon, but a little bit is okay for this special occasion. Toys are also a great option. You can go with classic ones, like rope pulls or tennis balls, or go all-out, and get something modern, like a mechanical ball launcher. Your pooch may also enjoy a new bed, or perhaps a comfy doggy jacket.


Our feline friends really love being pampered. Fortunately for us, that isn’t hard to do. New beds are always a hit with kitties. Toys are another good bet. Even the laziest cats like to unleash their inner kittens sometimes! You can also get Fluffy’s little motor going by getting her some kitty furniture, like a cat tower or scratching post.

Pocket Pets/Exotics

If your little buddy lives in a cage, this is a great time to give it a good deep cleaning. Or, even better, get them a bigger one! While you’re at it, you may want to upgrade some of your pet’s decorations and furniture. A new hide box is a good idea. Of course, these guys will also appreciate toys and treats. Just stick to things that you know are safe.

All Pets

A trip to the salon is another good option. Pets are much more comfortable when their fur is soft and clean! Plus, then you get to enjoy cuddling with a fresh-smelling pet. Get some cute pictures of your four-legged friend after. Have some fun with it, and experiment with different props and effects. There’s no such thing as too many pet photos!


Unfortunately, many sweet pets are still looking for their forever homes. Consider making a donation to an animal charity or shelter. Of course, if you’re considering adopting a pet, this is the perfect time to do it!
