7 Cookbooks, Treat-Mixes and Makers to Gift the Pickiest Pets

Remy the rat isn't the only pet who's interested in "chefing it up". When it comes to DIY pet recipes and treats, we're all about it. In fact, Figo has a whole series dedicated to creating healthy and delicious goodies for our office pups. But with the holidays upon us, we're looking to gift something a little more tangible this year - especially for our food-loving pet parent friends and family. Read through our list of top cookbooks and treat mixes for even the most discerning pet palate.

If your dog is less of a baked-good boy and more of a frozen fan, you're going to want to grab a few of these ice-cold molds.

Then pop them out whenever your pup is in need of something to munch on. Get one here.

Don't forget, the greatest gift a pet parent can get their dog or cat is a happy, healthy life. Consider looking into pet insurance, so you never have to make a hard decision between your beloved companion and your wallet. Get a quote today.
