Happy Valentine’s Day!

From Everyone at FurEver Family

Why not celebrate Valentine’s Day with the one that will love you furever…your pet! Show your furry or feathery friend some extra love today with some Valentine’s Day pet tips and tricks!

Don’t have a furry Valentine this year? Why not buy something and take it to your local shelter!

 

A few reasons your pet makes the best Valentine’s date:

  1. You don’t have to share your dessert (and probably shouldn’t), so you get your tempting torte all to yourself. Perfect!
  2. Pets don’t care if you are “presentable” or not. You don’t have to buy expensive shoes to hang out with them. You don’t even have to shower.
  3. When a pet follows you around it’s cute. If a date follows you around…we call that little phenomenon stalking!

Safety Tips

Valentine’s Day can be as much fun for pets as it is for humans – as long as dangerous items are kept out of paws’ reach!

Pet-Safe Bouquets
When sending a floral arrangement to someone with a cat, specify that it contain no lilies—and when receiving an arrangement, sift through and remove all dangerous flora. If your pet is suffering from symptoms such as lethargy, vomiting or diarrhea, he may have ingested an offending flower or plant.

Forbidden Chocolate
Seasoned pet lovers know that all types of chocolate are potentially life-threatening when ingested by pets. Go ahead and indulge, but don’t leave chocolate out for them to find!

Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Don’t let pets near roses or other thorny-stemmed flowers. Biting, stepping on or swallowing their sharp, woody spines can cause serious infection if a puncture occurs. De-thorn your roses far away from pets.

 

 

Fun Facts

People are expected to spend $886 million on their furry Valentines this year, according to the National Retail Federation.

The average person is expected to spend $161.96 on Valentine’s this year, largely because more folks are factoring in friends, family and, yes, pets when shopping for gifts.

2018 survey found half of female dog owners say they would rather spend time with their pooches than with their romantic partners or family members.

 

 

4 Ways to Have the Best Valentine’s Day with Your Pet

  1. Do Something They Love to Do. If your dog’s version of the perfect day involves running laps at the dog park, take him! If he loves going on long walks more than anything else, lace up your shoes and get going. Your cat would leap for joy if you joined in on their playtime, and even birds have favorite games they like to play.
  2. Spoil Them with a Special Treat. Pet bakeries are popping up all across the country, and they’re serving up seriously delicious treats catered to animal’s dietary restrictions. You can even whip up your own batch of pupcakes, muffins, or biscuits.
  3. Let Them Pick out a New Toy. Most pet stores have an open door policy for leashed pets. Let them explore the store and take their time picking out the perfect toy. They’ll be so excited to take it home and start playing.
  4. Arrange a Play Date. Valentine’s Day may be all about the love you share for each other, but the more the merrier. If your pet enjoys playing with others of his same species, invite his friends over for a good time.
