The 12 Dog (and Cat) Days of Christmas

Written on December 13, 2018 by Staff Veterinarian

‘Tis the season for jolly Christmas carols and giving gifts to the ones we love (including the furry ones!) In tribute to Christmas time, we reworked the classic 12 Days of Christmas by changing the perspective to our pets! Whether you shower them with new toys, or simply spend a bit of extra time with them, the gifts you give them are always more than enough in their eyes.

And if you really want to get into the Christmas spirit, here’s the melody to go along:
