Our animals are not only a part of our family they bring us unconditional and loyal love. So everyone, from Alexandria to Zanzibar, on Valentine's Day take a moment to appreciate and show your pet how much you love them.
How can you safely show the furry members of your family how special they are to you this Valentine's Day?
Give them a pet-friendly treat: bake at home dog cookies or treats but do not share that box of chocolates … chocolate is a toxic for animals!
Spend some quality time with your pet: Schedule a grooming session or go for a long walk, or curl up together for a good cuddle. Attention is always appreciated! If you're planning a romantic getaway why not hire a professional pet sitter. Many pet sitting companies offer services in Alexandria, Fairfax and Arlington areas and can schedule a pet sitter to come to your house to take care of all of your pet's needs while you are away.
Buy something special: a new fluffy warm bed, a new scratching post, a new bone or chew toy, a new squeker toy, a gift certificate for a week's worth of extra attention with a pet sitter, heart shaped catnip toys …. ..something new is always fun! Your pet will love it!
Watch out for two of the most common gifts on Valentine's Day-chocolate and flowers. Flowers such as lilies are extremely toxic to cats and will cause fatal kidney failure.
Celebrate Valentine's Day -your pet will love the extra attention!
