The holidays are just around the corner, and many of us are saving a special spot under the tree for pet toys.  There are many toys to choose from, so these guidelines may help you to narrow down your list.

What Should I Get my Pet for the Holidays?

Playtime isn't just about fun and games for pets.  Besides relieving the boredom that may come from being left at home while their parents are at work, playing with toys and exercising is also important for their health.  Specifically, active pets are less likely to have behavioral problems, obesity and joint problems.  Toys that your pets can enjoy while you are away will keep them occupied, and more importantly, keep them out of trouble!

Keep in mind that toys are meant to be fun, not dangerous.  Plastic eyes, strings or bells will most likely be ripped off and swallowed at some point, and although your cat may be intrigued by the sound of a plastic bag, they are not safe for play.  Rawhide chews can cause major problems if ingested, so it's best to only give these to your dog under supervision.  Using common sense will go a long way to prevent potential problems with pet toys.

Getting involved in your pets' playtime is good for you and your pet.  A game of fetch with your dog can be great exercise and reduce stress, and it can be very entertaining to watch cats follow their natural instincts when a toy mouse is introduced!  Making time to give your pet the love and attention they need is the best gift you can give to them.

So, when you're doing your holiday shopping this year for the rest of your family, don't forget to buy some toys for your furry friends!
