Protecting Your Pet: Holiday Gifts For Pets
Just like people, animals can be naughty and nice. Still during the hoiday's we like find some special stocking stuffers that'll get their tails wagging. Health Specialist Marilyn Mitzel scouts out some purr-fect presents in protecting your pet.
WSVN -- That's why Virgina Weinstein spoils Rocky and Belle rotten.
Pet owner Virginia Weinstein: "It makes them feel more a part of the family then they already are."
There's certainly a lot more you can get your furry friend than just a new bone.
Cherie Wachter from the Humane Society of Broward County: "This is what every dog needs this holiday season."
There's great shopping at The Humane Society. From sparkly collars - to safe toys.
Cherie Wachter: "Your cat does deserve the best."
How about some cat caviar! Or...
Steven Cohen from The Dog Bar: "If you want to give your dog a fresh turkey dinner -- you can."
At "The Dog Bar" on South Beach features the finest gourmet food for canines and felines.
But a word from the wisemen.
Dr. Jan Bellows, Hometown Animal Clinic: "Many times if you go to a store and buy something even though it looks delicious, a lot of times its not the right thing."
Avoid treats that upset stomachs - damage teeth - or cause choking. When in doubt...
Dr. Jan Bellows, Hometown Animal Hospital: "If you have any questions check with your veterinarian."
There's also beautiful beds and bowls, stylish threads and totes -- carriers, "Jimmy Chews" and sexy Playboy leashes.
Steven Cohen: "Perfect for those little hotties, and their dogs that want to be seen walking down the street."
For the pet who has absolutely everything - a heated and air conditioned outdoor home.
For water lovers - a surf board to hang 10. Hog fans - how about matching Harley outfits.
There's only one thing our pets really want - all year round.
