3 Great Holiday Gift Ideas for Dogs and Cats


The winter holidays are here! Are you prepared? If you are having a hard time settling on a present for your furry friend, we can help. The veterinarians here at Best Care Animal Hospital want your pet to enjoy a safe and happy holiday season. That's why we made the decision to talk about some awesome — though untraditional — gift suggestions for pets. Keep in mind that, as your pet’s veterinarian in Matthews, we’re also here to lend a helping paw if they need medical attention this holiday season. If you're looking for some last-minute gift ideas for your furry family member, keep reading.


Every single year, around 10 million household pets disappear in the United States. If your four-legged best friend ever becomes one of the million lost animals, you'll be more likely to see them again if you've had them microchipped by a veterinarian. Microchipping is quick and easy, and doing so gives your pet a form of identification that lasts for the rest of their life. 

Parasite Prevention

If you think fleas, ticks, and other parasites are just a nuisance, you better think again. These awful critters are detrimental to animals' health, too. They can even cause illness in humans. If you don’t currently have your cat or dog on an effective parasite preventive, now is an excellent opportunity to get them started. To ensure that you buy safe, effective preventives, we recommend purchasing parasite control products directly from your pet's veterinarian. 

Give the Gift of Health with a Wellness Exam

We understand that visiting a veterinarian's office for a wellness checkup probably does not sound like a great 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. Scheduling an appointment for your furry friend is an excellent way to end 2021 with a clean bill of health and start the upcoming year off on the right paw! 

Give your pet the gift of good health this holiday season. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
