Who cheers you up when you’re feeling down?

Who’s the first to greet you when you get home? And who listens to you tell the same story over again without a slight roll of the eye? Your pet, that’s who. Hill’s Pet Nutrition celebrates the unbreakable bond shared between pet and pet parent. Here are some extra-special ways to show your pets how much you love them:

Spa day – Just like we feel we have a new lease on life with a fresh hair cut or new style, the same goes for our pets. How about a day at the spa for your pooch? Take your dog to the parlour; there they’ll bath him, dry him, brush him and trim his nails. While most cats won’t take as kindly to a spa day, why not give your kitty a nice, relaxing brush at home?

Walk and play – One of the best ways to spend time with your dog is by playing and exercising with him. Go for a long walk, stop at the park and play some catch. Why not, instead of your usual walking route, head to the beach if you live by the seaside or try a new park if you’re inland. Cats love playing games too; any feathery toys, scratch posts, or even a good, old box, will bring out the kitten in them and expend any pent-up energy.

It’s a homemade treat! – Make your pet delicious homemade snacks using Hill’s pet food. Click here for some great recipe ideas.

Volunteer at your local pet shelter – You don’t have to have a pet to love pets. Why not celebrate Love Your Pet Day by visiting a nearby animal shelter? Spend time with the dogs and cats looking for their forever home as well as the volunteers who support them. It will make you, and them, feel good.
