Dogs don’t know that they’re invincible, and they’re not gonna learn that today since they can’t read the dictionary.

For the times when pupper needs a little TLC, read on for some get well soon gifts for dogs that’ll have him back to normal in no time.
1. Ice cream for her sick day.
Everyone knows the best part of being sick is getting to sit on the couch, eat snacks, and watch Wheel of Fortune. Well, if pup could speak, she’d be saying, “Pat, I’d like to buy an I for Ice cream!” Just add water and freeze to make this delicious treat.

3. A snuffle mat to exercise pup’s mind.
A tired pup is a good pup, but it may be hard to tire him out if he’s supposed to be on bed rest. For the dog who’s needing a bit of R&R, try exercising his mind.

It’s an enriching way for your dog to eat her food. 2. It slows her down to help her digestion. 3. The textured surface can be soothing and relaxing when licked.
