5 Must-Have Products to Keep Your Pet Happy and Healthy

As pet owners, ensuring the happiness and well-being of our furry companions is a top priority.

From cosy beds to interactive toys, there's a plethora of products on the market designed to enhance our pets' lives.

The problem is... which ones are actually good??

Not to worry, the Domestic Beasts team is here to help you.

In this article, we'll explore five essential items that every pet owner should consider investing in, not only to keep your pets happy but also to promote overall health and wellness.

Orthopaedic Pet Bed

A good night's sleep is essential for pets' health and vitality, just like it is for humans. An orthopaedic pet bed provides optimal support for your pet's joints and muscles, especially beneficial for senior pets or those with arthritis. Look for a bed with memory foam or supportive padding to ensure your pet wakes up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

We, at Domestic Beasts, created one for your loved companions. You can check it out here

Interactive Food Dispenser

Keep your pet mentally stimulated and physically active with an interactive food dispenser. These devices challenge pets to work for their food, encouraging natural foraging behaviours and preventing boredom.

Whether it's a puzzle feeder for dogs or a treat-dispensing toy for cats, interactive food dispensers provide hours of entertainment while promoting healthy eating habits.

We found some of the best ones for you. This one is the most expensive but also works great and lasts forever (for cats only). If you have two cats, why don`t you give this one a try?

For dogs, this is our recommendation.

If it is an interactive puzzle what you are looking for, we found this is great for dogs and keeps them entertained for a while, as quite difficult to solve but very sturdy to pass the test of time (and for the big chewers!) and this for your cats.

Remember to always supervise your pets when using these puzzles.

Grooming Essentials

Regular grooming is essential for maintaining your pet's hygiene and overall health.

Invest in high-quality grooming tools such as a slicker brush (do not use on scabs or wounds!), nail clippers (these are perfect for cats and rabbits and these for dogs even come with a nail filer. Remember to consult your vet or groomer if you are not sure how to start), and a pet-safe shampoo (this is the one we use in the clinic and it is good for sensitive skin but always remember to ask your vet if you are concerned about your pet`s skin or if your animal suffers from any allergy).

Additionally, consider a grooming glove or de-shedding tool like Furminator, that used to SAVE me with the problem of shedding with my little Jack Russell X. They have the tool for smallshort-haired dogs, medium short-haired dogs, short-haired cats, medium/long-haired cats, long/extra long-haired dogs, and rabbits.

Dental Care Products

Don't overlook the importance of dental care in pets' overall health. I see too many pets in the practice with horrible horrible teeth and gums and I can assure you it is a painful condition!

Dental disease is very common among pets and can also lead to serious health issues if left untreated. Try to invest in dental care products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental chews to keep your pet's teeth and gums clean and healthy. Regular dental care can help prevent dental problems and ensure your pet maintains fresh breath and a sparkling smile (and can save you a few hundred pounds at the vets!).

Interactive Toys

Stimulating your pet's mind and body is super important for their wellbeing. Nowadays there are a variety of interactive toys you can find on the market for this purpose, according to the species and age. Take a look at this classic feather wand (or this one for a more modern spin) that encourages play, or this motion activated tennis ball, for dogs that love chasing and running. We also liked the cat version of this last one, to stimulate the predatory instinct.

We LOOVE the idea of the Snuffle Mat for dogs, so simple yet so effective to prevent boredom and to stimulate dogs`sense of smell.

We hope these products will be useful for you and your pets, as they have been carefully selected after thoughtful considerations and based on our many years of experience in practice.

It is important to invest in the right products, as these can make a significant difference in your pet's quality of life.

We are sure that by incorporating these items into your pet care routine, you can ensure that your furry friends will live their best lives.
