Eco Friendly Care for Pets

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

Many pet owners care for their pets in a very serious way. They take their pets to the vet, monitor their diets, drive to the dog park for exercise, etc. In return these pet owners get unconditional love and loyalty from their pets. When pet owners care for their pets in an eco-friendly way, our planet can also reap many benefits.  Here are some ways that pet owners can incorporate some ec0-friendly pet practices into their pet care.

  • Use a biodegradable bag to scoop waste – This is a much better option than re-using a bag from the grocery store.
  • Use organic food – Organic foods are free from artificial flavors and coloring. They are produced without the use of hormones or chemicals.
  • Don’t Use pesticides in your yard – Whenever possible avoid the use of these products so that your pet can roam and play in a chemical free environment.
  • Walk to the dog park if possible rather than drive – Many communities have dog parks where dogs can roam freely and play with the other dogs in the neighborhood. If possible, walk there to reduce your fuel consumption. If it’s possible to take your bicycle along with your dog, this is a great way for you and your dog to exercise plus it helps the environment.
  • Groom you pet in a green friendly way – Use natural products when you shampoo your dog. These products are not made with chemicals that can harm the environment and even harm your pet if ingested.

Remember, pets are family!
