10 Products Your Pet Needs This Winter

Nov 20, 2018

Wondering which products to purchase your pet this Winter? Pet Releaf has got you covered with our top 10 holiday gifts for pets!

At Pet Releaf, we want to ensure safety and comfort for your pets this winter. As our CBD hemp oil can help aid with your pets’ situational anxieties this holiday season, we also found 9 other great holiday gifts for pets that are comfortable, stylin’, and super useful!

1. Pet Releaf CBD Hemp Oil

If your cat or dog is suffering from situational anxieties, such as company coming over for the holidays–our CBD hemp oil could be a great solution for your pet! Our CBD hemp oil can help calm your pet during high-stress situations with its relaxing properties. Not sure which CBD hemp oil would work best for your dog or cat? At Pet Releaf, we have recommended usage amounts based on your pet’s weight to help you choose the best option!

2. Boots

Boots are the ultimate winter essential when it comes to walking your dog in the snow. With slippery conditions, salt and de-icer chemicals being spread on the ground, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Rock salt can be very rough on your dog’s soft paws and de-icers can be potentially harmful to pets when it is ingested. Ruff Wear has boots available for purchase that provide traction and insulation called Polar Trex. These boots are perfect for wintery conditions as they’re designed for warmth with an insulated upper softshell fabric. Also the Ruffwear-design Vibram outsoles provide traction on very icy grounds. Plus, they even provide a guide on how to help your dog break into their new boots!

3. Non-Toxic Ice Melters

If your pup isn’t into wearing boots, you can still protect them from toxic de-icers outside your own home! Safe Paw provides a non-toxic ice melter that is safe for your pet’s eyes, paws, and skin. It is also environmentally safe and will leave your pet unharmed if accidentally ingested. So skip out on the rock salt and toxic de-icers and spread some Safe Paw on your driveways and sidewalks this year! Who said that winter safety isn’t one of the greatest holiday gifts for pets?

4. Sweaters

Whether your cat or dog is lounging around the house or running wild at the nearest park, they deserve to go out in style. The Posh Puppy Boutique has sweaters with various, fun designs geared for smaller to larger pups. Plus, the smaller sizes could even fit your cat! Not sure which size your dog or cat would fit? The Posh Puppy Boutique has a sizing guide to ensure you’re purchasing the right size for your pet!

5. Jackets

Planning on some camping or hiking this winter season? Keep your dog warm with Hurtta’s winter jackets! Hurtta has a dog jacket called the Extreme Warmer that will keep your pup warm and comfortable in even the harshest of conditions. This jacket has a built-in reflective foil that reflects your dog’s body heat to give your pup’s body extra warmth. The surface material is also waterproof to keep your pup dry in the snowy weather!

6. Scarves

To keep your dogs’ ears and neck warm, RCPets provides a hat and scarf combo that will help shield your pup from the wintry conditions outside! This product is called the Summit Snood and is perfect for dogs with floppy or thin-skinned ears. It’s a stretchy fabric that allows for a close fit but not restricting on your pet’s ears. The Snood can help protect their ears and necks for when the temperature starts dropping lower and lower.

7. Blankets

It’s finally cuddling season! What better way to spend those chilly winter nights than snuggled up to your favorite companions? Native Instinct actually creates blankets that double as a blanket and a dog or cat bed! These blankets have fun, original patterns on the outside and then soft white or gray sherpa on the inside to keep your pet warm and cozy this winter.

8. Heated Beds

Want your furkid to be able to comfortably hang out with you on the porch or in the garage during the temperature change? Your pet can chill alongside you with K&H Pet Products’ Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed. This bed has an internal thermostat that heats to the standard body temperature of dogs and cats. It also comes in small, medium, and large depending on your pet’s size!

9. Thermal-Bowls

To make sure your pet’s water doesn’t freeze out in the cold weather, try out K&H Pet Products’ Thermal Bowl. No matter what the temperature it is outside, this bowl will keep your pet’s drinking water unfrozen and palatable.

10. Indoor Activities

If your pup hates the winter weather outside, they may not receive as much exercise as they would during the warmer weather. To keep your dog or cat active inside, try out some toys or food puzzles to keep them busy. Planet Dog created the Orbee Tuff Snoop which is a translucent ball with a deep crevice where you can hide treats or toys for your dog to try and release! This toy can keep your pup busy for hours while they nudge and pounce to try and get the prize out.  And for feline friends, try out a cat tree for your cat to get some extra jumps and stretching in. FurHaven Pet Products has many different cat playgrounds to choose from! Many include scratching posts, various levels to jump on, ladders, and more to entertain your cat when it’s too cold to go outside.
