10 great gifts for your pets this holiday season

» more from Holiday Central

If you've got a dog or cat in the house, there's a pretty good chance you'll be buying them a gift this holiday season.

Americans are expected to spend more than $60 billion on their animals this year — a 25 percent increase from five years ago. And while the bulk of that is on food and health care, we're a nation that loves to pamper our pets — whether it's with treats or higher-end goodies.

The American Pet Products Association says 51 percent of dog owners and 38 percent of cat owners buy their fur-children a gift during the holiday season. And the National Retail Federation estimates people will spend an average of $28.05 on pets this year. If you're looking for just the right gift for Fluffy or Fido, we've got a few suggestions.
