Holistic Pet Care Tips

March 8, 2022
Are you trying to live a greener, more eco-friendly lifestyle? If so, you may want to look into holistic pet care. The holistic approach entails a gentle, natural approach to wellness, focuses on healing from the inside out, and includes both mental and physical well-being. A Del City, OK vet offers some holistic pet care tips below.

Great Diet

Good health starts with good nutrition! Of course, picking the right food can be tricky. Every company is trying to make their product look great! Look for a brand that contains mostly meat, fish, and/or poultry, and contains few or no fillers, like corn and wheat. Be sure to choose a food that’s right for your pet’s age. Ask your vet for recommendations.

Clean Living

Fresh air and clean water are important for any pet, regardless of whether or not these are done from a holistic standpoint. Air and water filters will benefit both you and your furry friend. Non-toxic plants can also help with air purification. Check the ASPCA site here for suggestions.

Exercise

Physical activity is just as important for pets as it is for people. Keeping your furry pal fit not only reduces the risk of obesity, it also benefits almost every one of their body’s systems. Plus, exploring new trails and parks is really fun for Fido. This will be good for you, too! As for Fluffy, daily playtime will keep her happy and healthy.

Holistic Veterinary Care

Certain aspects of your pet’s medical care, such as screenings, will likely always fall under the umbrella of traditional medicine. However, alternative therapies such as Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, and massage can also be very beneficial for your furry buddy. The beauty here is that you don’t have to choose between holistic and traditional veterinary care. Why not offer the best of both worlds?

Limit Toxins

Limiting the amount of chemicals you bring into your home will benefit both you and your pet. Opt for eco-friendly, sustainably-sourced products when choosing things like household cleaners, shampoos, detergents, and even toys.

Purrs/Tail Wags

Just like people, pets can suffer from stress. Make your home comfy and relaxing for your furry friend by setting out lots of comfy beds and providing things like toys and treats. Love and TLC are also important! As your Del City, OK animal clinic, we’re here to help! Contact us anytime!
