If you have a friend who just brought home a new puppy or kitten or recently adopted a pet from a shelter, a very practical gift idea is a gift certificate to their veterinarian. There are a lot of costs associated with bringing home a new pet, so a gift certificate for a free wellness exam or to contribute to the cost of spaying or neutering would relieve some of that expense.
Of course, there are other costs associated with pet ownership such as preventive medications for heartworm, fleas, and ticks. Think about a gift certificate to help with the purchase of those items as well. Any family pet would benefit from a VetDepot gift certificate to stock up on medications, supplies, or even treats and toys!
‘Tis the season for giving! So if you’re looking for ways to help less fortunate animals, gift certificates are also a great thing to donate to your local shelter or rescue group. These organizations are always in need of preventive medications, vitamins, grooming supplies, and dental care items. By donating a VetDepot gift certificate to a local organization you also know exactly where your money is going and how it will be used–so you will be directly helping local pets in need!
