Healthy Dogs Gift Guide

Veterinarians share their gift picks for dogs.

"The dog has to drink or eat more slowly because it's harder to get out of the bowl," Scott says. The dog that tested this bowl used to get sick a couple of times a week from drinking too quickly, and "she has not gotten sick on her water since she started to use her new bowl."

Pet Lookout Car Booster Seat (made by Outward Hound): If your dog likes to sit in the front seat and look out the car window, consider buying this booster seat to keep your pet safe, Stickney says. It fits into the passenger seat with a safety harness that attaches to your pet's collar or harness.

"This is a great way to keep them safe in the car and keep your hands on the wheel," says Stickney, whose Chihuahua-terrier gave the seat high marks. "She's always trying to either sit in my lap or climb on my shoulder, and I'm trying to hold onto her. I put her in the booster seat, put the little clip on, and she was happy as can be."

Thundershirt: The snug-fitting Thundershirt is marketed to calm anxious or hyperactive dogs by exerting gentle pressure, similar to swaddling a baby. Reports about its effectiveness are anecdotal. A Doberman pinscher  with moderate thunderstorm and noise anxiety wore the garment one rainy day, and "this did seem to help," Stickney said. "The dog was much more relaxed, and ... she was actually able to shut her eyes and sleep instead of trembling and being wrapped around the owner's leg."

Disposable Booties (made by Simple Solution):Keep your dog's paws clean on rainy days with these waterproof foot covers. They took a little maneuvering to cinch around the dog's ankles, but once they were on, "we were really impressed with how they work," Stickney says.

Stickney's dog's feet stayed dry even after walking through a puddle, and when they went back in the house, "I didn't have little wet dog footprints all over the place and on the furniture."
