[Giveaway] Take The Scare Out Of Healthcare

For pets that hate taking medications, brushing their teeth, and other necessary health tasks, it can be tough to maintain routines. PetMeds® is helping pet parents take the scare out of health care by giving away eight prize packs through the month of October.

It’s not uncommon for pet parents to struggle to maintain important healthcare routines. Teeth go unbrushed, nails get overgrown, and medication doses are missed when pets refuse to comply with uncomfortable at-home care tasks.

Positive reinforcement in the form of treats and praise can make some aspects of care easier, but pet parents may still struggle to get their cat or dog to relax. Using tricks and games can make a care routine so much fun the pet will actually look forward to it.

Brushing teeth and trimming nails may seem like tedious tasks, but many cats and dogs respond favorably when their pet parents offer the same enthusiasm as they would if their pet were learning to ride a skateboard or dance in a tutu. Throwing a party when pets allow their parent to brush even just one tooth or trim one nail can lead to bigger successes. Just about any routine that’s met with resistance can be turned into a fun, engaging game.

Some pets will take their medication if they think it’s a forbidden treat. Pretending to drop a pill-loaded treat on the floor or even feeding it off your dinner plate can make bitter medication taste a bit sweeter.

To help make care routines even easier, pet parents are invited to enter the PetMeds® Trick-To-Treat Giveaway for a chance to win a health care package that will include Pill Pockets treats for cats or dogs, Greenies for cats or dogs, and a Mummy Sloth plush toy for dogs or EEEKS! catnip mouse toy for cats.

The PetMeds® Trick-To-Treat Giveaway runs from Friday October 1, 2021, through Sunday, October 31 2021. Everyone who enters from 12:01 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) October 1, 2021 to October 31 2021 at 11:59 PM ET is eligible to win.
