Best Pet Birthday Ideas

Pets are an important part of our families, and deserve to be celebrated on their birthdays! Even if you don’t know your pet’s exact date of birth, it’s still fun to take a day out of each year to pamper your pet and show them your love in an extra special way. The team at Beverly Hills Veterinary Associates has put together a list of the best pet birthday ideas to help you celebrate your fur baby’s latest trip around the sun. 

Pet Friendly Treats

The first thing you might think of when you hear “birthday” is cake. Give your pet the best day ever with some extra special pet-friendly treats. Consider baking a pet-safe cake for your companion, or stopping by your favorite pet shop for some safe birthday treats. Ingredients such as peanut butter, applesauce, and pumpkin all make for great dog-safe birthday cakes. If you have any questions on ingredient safety, be sure to check with your Beverly Hills team first. 

While giving treats is fun, don’t spoil your pet’s birthday by letting them over-indulge. Be sure to portion out the amount of treats you give your pet, to avoid an upset tummy or any serious issues such as pancreatitis. 

New Pet Toys 

Receiving fun presents is one of the best parts about birthdays, and pets love receiving a new toy as much as humans do. Gift your pets some new toys for their special day—squeaky toys, stuffed animals, scratching poles, and balls all make great gifts for your pet. Plus, gifting these toys means you’ll get some bonus quality time playing with your pet. 

Birthday Outing 

Just like humans like to celebrate their birthday with a special trip somewhere, pets love a fun adventure. Consider taking your dogs for a car ride or an extra walk around the park for their birthday. Fresh air and exercise are always a great idea and can make your pet feel even more special on their big day.

Fun Fashion 

If your pet is the type that likes dressing up, a new wardrobe option could be a great pet birthday idea, which will lead to plenty of photo-worthy moments. Your pet can strut their stuff in a fun new collar or cute sweater for their special day. A new leash or harness would also be a great gift that will come in handy for years to come.

Annual Pet Wellness Checks: The Gift That Keeps on Giving 

The best gift you can give your furry loved one is a lifetime of good health! Be sure to schedule your pet’s annual wellness exam so they can be up-to-date on their wellness care, vaccines, and preventives. Plus, annual wellness checkups are great opportunities for your Beverly Hills Veterinarians to check for any potential illness or diseases. Keeping on schedule with your pet’s regular wellness exams is the key to a longer and happier life.
