7 Things Dogs Are Thankful For

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It’s always nice to slow down and enjoy some delicious seasonal food with your loved ones. Of course, Fido is part of the family too, and may very well find himself with a special treat. If your pet could tell you what he appreciates the most, what do you think would make the list? A Conyers, GA vet offers some suggestions below.

Getting Petted

Does your pet close his eyes with pleasure when you help him get that itchy spot behind his ears? Or perhaps your canine pals prefers belly rubs or back scratches. No matter what your furry pal’s favorite is, we’re pretty sure that cuddles are one of Fido’s favorite things.

Toys

Man’s Best Friend is very playful, and often does an adorable happy dance when he spots a new doggy toy. Make sure Fido has lots of playthings, and take time every day to play with your furry pal. It will be good for both of you!

Bacon

Bacon is definitely at or near the top of the list of Fido’s favorite things, along with meat, cheese, pepperoni, sausage, hamburgers, chicken, fish, and, well, pretty much anything edible. Just be careful not to overindulge your pet with fatty snacks. That old saying about too much of a good thing definitely applies to dogs!

Flea Control

Fido may not understand how his parasite control works, but if he did, this may very well be at or near the top of the list!

Long Walks

Exercise is very important to Fido’s health and well-being. Daily walks and play sessions will help keep your pup fit and strong, and will also provide him with beneficial mental stimulation.

Car Rides

While most of our feline patients seem to equate car rides with some terrible form of punishment, dogs typically love being out and about. Just be sure to keep Fido crated for travel. It’s much safer for both of you!

Love

If there is one thing Fido really appreciates, it’s you! You’re the apple of your pet’s eye, and the center of his universe. Taking good care of your pet will earn you unconditional doggy love, as well as countless puppy smooches and tail wags. What more could you ask for?
