Pet Health Advice Alternatives
The push for all
natural alternatives in our synthetically saturated society has finally
become a force in the pet health care product industry. The ďorganic
optionĒ is no longer limited to the dog owner, but has become a viable
and more affordable alternative for dogs as well. So what are the
benefits of using an all natural pet health care product?
Herbal remedies are often less concentrated than manufactured drugs and
so in general there is less chance for strong allergic reactions to the
medicine. It is important to consider that it is much harder for a dog
to communicate its discomfort or physical symptoms than it is for a
human being, so herbal remedies may lessen the suffering of a dog if
that medication is not suited for it.
All pets, dogs, cats, and birds, must have a quality diet that will
ensure the proper functioning of their organs and provide a balanced
diet full of nutrients that will keep them healthy. In years past,
there was very little on the market that would be considered dog health
food. Today, there is a wide choice of healthy dog foods to keep your
There has been a huge boom in the human world for organic and natural
food. Now, there is a movement for natural pet health food that is
quite similar. Unfortunately, dogs have to rely on their human owners
to buy this pet health food for them and sometimes even the most well
intentioned dog owners are neglectful.
In the wild, animals ate other animals. While not a pretty image, it is
a steady diet of natural, raw meat that is rich in nutrients. Processed
animal foods are loaded with all kinds of fillers (including corn and
soy!) that are not staples of a dog diet. These are foods that the
animalís digestive system was not meant to absorb. While it isnít
healthy for the dogs, it is healthy for the bank account of the dog
food companies. Since our dogs are not hunting for organic meat, it is
up to the owners to buy healthy dog food that has those natural meats
that their dog truly needs.
To avoid dog obesity, you should check their weight regularly and
monitor it. Make sure the regular checking falls at the same time of
day and use the same scale. Secondly, it is important not to feed them
lots of fatty food. Some dogs control their food intake while others
eat anything in sight. This is a bad habit and it leads to adding
pounds without the owner even realising it. Besides all these, make
sure your pet exercises well. Smaller animals like hamsters and mice
have built-in work out places inside their cages, but dogs donít, and
it is up to you to ensure their fitness and health is at optimal levels
at all times.
