Celebrate Holistic Pet Day Everyday!
August 30 is National Holistic Pet Day. Why limit it to one day? Follow these simple steps to incorporate a holistic approach to pet health every day.
- Exercise: Walk your dog, play with your cat, get active! Lack
of activity cascades into a host of physical and emotional health problems for dogs and cats (and humans).
- Diet: Overfeeding your pet
leads to obesity which leads to health issues. Provide your pet the best diet you can
afford. Processed foods are convenient, but the more natural
diet you can provide the better. Avoid foods with chemical preservatives
and animal by-products.
Supplements: Supplements are one way to ensure your pet is getting
the necessary nutrients it needs. Vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-3
fatty acids given regularly support the immune system and help to
prevent disease. Glucosamine supports joint health. Herbal remedies can calm nervous, easily agitated dogs
a Good Vet: Choose a vet that does not dismiss the holistic health
approach This means appointments are about how to prevent
disease rather than only treating existing symptoms. A good resource
to find a vet is the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
Exposure to Toxins: Dogs
and cats lie on furniture, carpets and grass. Avoid using chemical lawn products (pesticides) and try to use natural home cleaning
your pet an important part of your life. This is
what makes for truly holistic health. The affection you show your pet supports their physical health, and yours.
