Still trying to figure out what to get your pet for Christmas? High tech gifts are on trend for this holiday season. Although, they might be more for the pet parents more than the pets.
Microchips and GPS Collars

Instead of getting a procedure done, you might consider buying a GPS collar. To learn more about these option and the differences between them, read GPS Collars or Microchips?
Pet obesity is still on the rise. Treating this issue with food alone does not always work. If you do not have enough time to exercise with your dog as much as is needed, Exercise Your Pet With A Pet Treadmill. These treadmills are just like the ones designed for humans, but are made for dogs instead.
Apps For Pets And Their Owners
There are tons of apps available for both pet owners and their pets. Yes, there are apps designed just for pets, with cats leading the market for non human consumers. Most of these apps try to get the cat to paw at the screen and attempt to catch a laser pointer, a mouse, a fish, or some other moving target. Some apps even turn your cat into an artist, like Paint For Cats. Read Apps For Cats Creates Feline Gamers for some additional information about these apps.
