National Pet Week starts May 2nd! While for some of us every week is National Pet Week, we’re always more than happy to celebrate our furry pals. Why not spoil your four-legged buddy a bit? A local Bucks County, PA vet lists some things to put on your to-do list below.


It usually doesn’t take too much to get Fido’s cute tail going. Toys, treats, car rides, a trip to the park: these are all some of the best things in life, as far as Man’s Best Friend is concerned. Your pooch may also benefit from a new bed, or perhaps a more comfortable collar or harness. Some belly rubs and ear scritches are also in order.


Fluffy’s life goal is to get you to pamper her. Fortunately for us, that really isn’t hard. A new bed, some catnip, a fun toy, or perhaps a bit of plain chicken or fish will all please your feline overlord. You can also make your kitty a box castle or a homemade pet tent.

Pocket Pets

Smaller animals, like bunnies, gerbils, and Guinea pigs, also need lots of love and care. Chew toys are probably your best bet here. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on these: there are lots of great ones you can make yourself.


Our feathered friends love toys! These are also important for your little buddy’s mental and emotional health. Living in a cage can get pretty boring. You can also get Polly some new perches.


Reptiles and exotics deserve great care too, but they probably won’t get very excited over a trip to the park or an automated laser pointer. With these guys, making sure they have a great habitat is absolutely crucial. If your little buddy could use a new hide box or perhaps another climbing branch, this is a great time to get them. You could also upgrade their habitat and/or heating and lighting equipment.

All Pets

No matter what type of pet you have, indulge them with attention, conversation, and perhaps some special treats. Our animal friends turn our houses into homes, keep us company, and provide us with love, cuddles, and comfort, not to mention live entertainment. That’s definitely something to celebrate!
