August 30th is National Holistic Pet Day and it's the perfect opportunity to think about what we do to take care of our pet's body, mind, and soul. These days, the media is filled with ideas for holistic living, and it's certainly true that we're keener than ever to consider the ingredients we use and consume on a daily basis. However, do we give the same amount of thought to the products we buy for our pets? If not, why not?
National Holistic Pet Day was founded by Colleen Paige in an attempt to encourage pet parents to carefully consider the ways in which the products that they buy impact the welfare of their pet. After all, there are so many harmful chemicals used in pet foods and grooming products that it really does pay to know the difference. Whether you're considering diet, stimulation, or body condition, your pet deserves to be taken care of. Holistic products tend to encourage natural healing and digestion, as well as providing a balance of vitamins and minerals to aid all kinds of ailments.
While there is no right way to celebrate National Holistic Pet Day, you may wish to consider the foods, treats, and treatments that you give to your pet, and the reactions different ingredients cause in their body. Do you consider your pet's health as you would your own, and strive to provide them with products that are going to complement their health and lifestyle? Have you given any thought to holistic products or treatments, or how adversely some brands may affect your furry friend? Now is the perfect time to do so, and perhaps you'll discover a brand-new balance of nutritious treats and grooming products.
