Anyone who’s read this blog for long knows that I’m very particular about what I feed my dogs. Nike’s allergies and Sadie’s old age mean that both of my girls have pretty specific dietary needs, and not just any old commercial dog food will do.
What you might not know is that I’m also very selective about what I feed Snickers, my psychotic 11-year old cat. I’ve always been careful to ensure that he eats a good quality food to ward off urinary tract infections, allergies, and as he’s getting older, meets all of the needs of a senior cat.
Think about the “all natural” craze that we humans have been on for the last few years. We know that when we eat healthy and natural, we’re going to look better, feel better, and maybe even live longer. Why wouldn’t that same philosophy apply to our pets?
Did you know that feeding your cat a natural diet can have so many positive effects on him, including the potential for him to live longer? Owners who feed a natural diet report their pets are more energetic, and their coats are healthier and shinier. There’s less itching and scratching due to allergies, and fewer problems with urinary tract infection.
When it comes to our bodies – human, canine, or feline – it just makes sense that when you put in healthy, natural stuff, the results are going to be positive.
So today I’m challenging you. Start thinking about little changes you can make to give your pet a natural lifestyle. Start thinking about “going green” with your pet. It’s not something that can be done overnight, but you can get started with a single, simple step.
It might mean switching to a natural food, or adding a natural vitamin or supplement to your pet’s daily routine. It might also include natural flea and tick repellent or natural, healthy chews and treats.
