Remember, it’s not just your health and that of your families that is affected if you consume non-organic foods. Your pets have the right to eat better, and they deserve it, especially since there are now a large number of organic foods and grooming products in stores.
Did you know that every year, nearly 2.5 billion kilograms of animal bedding are thrown into landfills? Do this not only for environmental reasons, but also to protect the health of our animals.
Here are some tips you can follow to keep your pets healthy.
Choose natural and organic food for your animals
Pets should eat good quality food like we do. In other words, organic foods and kibbles that are not contaminated with toxic residues. There are many different brands of organic, holistic, or natural pet foods that use natural ingredients without the addition of growth hormones or other chemicals. Check the labels to make sure the foods are rich in natural nutrients and vitamins.
Organic care and grooming products
Don’t just think about food. The products you use to care for and wash them can cause bodily harm. Be sure to use organic care products that are safe for your pets and the environment, as it is impossible to tell if your dog or cat will lick something off the floor. Many cleaning products now use herbal and organically grown formulas that can help keep their coats shiny. The components of these products are non-toxic (check the labels to be sure).
Organic toys and accessories for pets
When we buy toys for our children, one of the first things we do is check the label to make sure it doesn’t contain lead or other harmful products. Do the same for your pets’ toys. Lead is even more harmful to pets than to humans. It’s often best to get creative and make toys out of things you had already planned to throw away. There are also organic cotton collars and blankets that are pesticide and herbicide free and your pet will be grateful for!
