These five ideas are perfect ways to splurge on your pets this holiday season.

Everyone loves unwrapping gifts, even if you don’t have thumbs. However, don’t fret if you haven’t purchased any present for your pets yet, because we’ve put together a top five list of gifts you can get for your four-legged friends.

1. Cat and Dog Water Fountain

Giving your beloved pets clean water prevents harmful contaminants from making them sick — and will also increase their lifespan. What better gift can you give them than that? Amazon has knocked 38 percent off of the price of the PetSafe Drinkwell Original Cat and Dog Water Fountain for a savings of $24.04 below their regularly listed price of $49.99. The fountain holds 50 ounces of water, and it’s made for cats and small dogs.

2. Dog Food and Treats for Large Dogs

Large pooches eat a lot of grub, right? It also seems like every time you turn around, your big dogs have gone through their supply of treats and dog food. There’s a solution for that, and now is the perfect chance to stock up on large supplies of dog food and dog treats while pet stores are slashing prices on them. For instance, you can get $7 off brands like Authority Large Breed Mature Dog Bags of Dog Food while Petsmart’s after-Thanksgiving sale promotion lasts. Petsmart is also offering free shipping for online purchases over $49.

3. Unique Cat Toys

To many of us, our mutts are members of our family, so why not treat them to some DNA testing this holiday season? Embark is offering their Dog DNA Test Kit with $40 knocked off the regular list price of $199 on Amazon. You’ll also get free delivery on Sunday if you order soon, and choose November 23 when you check out. Embark’s DNA test is easily administered with a cheek swab — and besides knowing what breed and genetic ancestry your canine friend holds as a pedigree, you’ll be be provided with some vital health detection results.
