Fun Ways to Celebrate Love Your Pet Day

Did you know that February 20th is Love Your Pet Day? While we think pets should be loved every day, this is a great opportunity to give your pet some extra TLC. In this article, a Diamond Bar, CA vet offers some great ideas on how to celebrate this fun occasion.


Yummy treats are probably pretty high on the list of your pet’s favorite things. Indulge Fido with some homemade doggy biscuits, or offer Fluffy a can of tuna. Bunnies and pocket pets can enjoy fresh produce, while birds may like pasta. Always research a new food before handing it over to your little buddy, to be sure it is safe. Ask your vet for specific recommendations on what types of treats are safe for your beloved pet to enjoy.


Most of our furred and feathered friends love toys. No matter what type of pet you have, a new plaything is a great way to honor this fun occasion. Pick up a new chew toy for Fido, or a catnip mouse for Fluffy. Pocket pets and birds also need lots of fun playthings!


If you have a dog, take your canine buddy on a fun outing to a doggy park or dog-friendly beach or café. Fluffy is much better off indoors, so take some time to play with your feline pal. Pocket pets and birds can enjoy a bit of extra time out of their cages.


Offering your animal companion a new bed or hidey-hole is also a great way to brighten up their day. Fluffy and Fido may really love a new bed! If you have a kitty, a new pet tent, cat tower, or kitty condo may get your feline buddy’s engine started. If your pet is a bird, exotic pet, or pocket pet, consider upgrading their habitat. A bigger cage is a great way to pamper these little guys!

Other Options

Love Your Pet Day is also a wonderful time to get some great new photos of your pet. Of course, proper veterinary care is crucial to your pet’s health and well-being, so if your animal companion hasn’t been to the vet’s for a while, let this be a reminder to set an appointment today!
