7 Great Ways to Pamper Your Dog

Do you have a dog? If so, you’ve got a loyal and loving companion, and a friend for life! Dogs truly enrich our lives and make our houses into homes. Below, a Sharon, ON vet offers some tips on how to get that furry tail wagging.


Treats are definitely one of Fido’s favorite things! Your four-legged buddy can enjoy regular doggy treats, but if you want to give him a special snack, offer him some cooked, unseasoned, boneless beef, hamburger, chicken, or turkey. You can also make your pooch some yummy homemade treats. Just be sure to choose only ingredients that are safe for dogs. Ask your vet for more information.


Man’s Best Friend is very playful. A new doggy toy is a great way to get that cute tail going! Take time to indulge Fido with a fun play session.


Many dogs love to explore new places. Take your furry pal on a fun excursion to a park or doggy café. Always put your pet’s safety first: screen Fido’s playmates carefully, and make sure your pooch is up to date on his parasite control products and vaccines.

Doggy Comforts

Every dog is unique. Your canine buddy’s needs will depend on his age, weight, health, and breed. For instance, senior dogs may appreciate elevated dishes or doggy stairs, while puppies may benefit from doggy day care. Ask your vet for specific advice.


Did you know that Man’s Best Friend spends at least half of his time snoozing? A new doggy bed is another great way to pamper your faithful pet on his special day.

Veterinary Care

While visiting us may not make the list of your furry friend’s favorite activities, proper veterinary care is very important to his health! Fido should see the vet regularly for exams, vaccines, dental care, and parasite control. We also strongly recommend that dogs be microchipped and spayed or neutered. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.


You are the apple of your dog’s eye, and the center of his world. Spend lots of time with your four-legged pal. Pet Fido, play with him, teach him a new trick, or just hang out with him.
