The Best Holiday Pet Gifts of 2018
Gibson's Dog Treats
These all-natural treats look and smell just like bacon, and they’re grain-free, soy-free, corn-free, and sugar-free. Your dog will gobble them up quicker than you can say “wanna treat?”

Waxed Canvas Canine Tote
If you travel often with your dog or cat, it’s time to upgrade your carrier to something more chic than a sherpa-lined carrier. Give your pet plenty of room to stretch out in this breathable tote. There’s even a leash clip, so Fido or Mittens can stay securely fastened.
Waxed Canvas Canine Tote, $270 at barkinternational.com
Cat litter that lasts for a month sounds too good to be true, right? Well, this brand stays fresh for 30 days, is free of irritating dust, and uses color-changing technology to alert you to any health issues your kitty may be hiding. It can sense everything from UTIs to kidney problems to bladder stones, which (in our opinion) is pretty impressive for cat litter. One of our editors tried it, and found that the odor elimination was frankly astounding.
PrettyLitter, $21 at prettylittercats.com
