Every pet owner wants their pet to have the best health and longest life possible. There are many ways to improve the day-to-day health of your dog or cat that can make them happier and stronger. Holistic pet health care supports natural care for pets and consider their individual health needs. In this Country Creek blog you’ll find some tips to improve your pet’s health, holistically.
Each pet has their own personality, likes, dislikes, and allergies, etc. Owners must design lifestyle changes around their pet’s individual health needs, not based on a single internet search or recommendation -- they’re not universal. What may be good for a Westie, may not be good for a Labrador retriever.
Nutrition – Owners have many options to consider when improving a pet’s diet. An easy thing to do is purchase a breed-specific food, which applies mostly to dogs, or to invest in higher-end natural foods. The cheap, mass produced kibble may not be what’s best for your dog or cat.
Another option is to provide natural, home-made foods to your pets. This will put you in control of your pet’s nutrition intake and help institute a truly balanced diet. A nutritional diet does not always mean going the opposite of traditional foods, as domesticated animals are not necessarily prepared for a raw meat kind of diet.
Homeopathy – Pet health goes beyond the food they intake to play a part in their general well-being. Sometimes all an owner needs to do is spend more time walking or playing with their pet to boost activity level and mood. Other treatments include aromatherapy, which is relaxing for both humans and pets, chiropractor adjustments, and even massages.
Some of these seem unconventional, but a pet’s well-being can affect their happiness. Homeopathy also includes all-natural treatments for pet illnesses and afflictions, such as Itchy skin, dry fur, which may be treated with diet changes. Recipes for pet-safe treatments can be used in conjunction with veterinary-prescribed treatments.
It’s always important to double-check with our Allen veterinarian to make sure any in-home treatment plans are good for your pet. It may be a lot to consider, but improving a pet’s health can ensure they stay part of the family by living a long life. Call our pet professionals to discover more ways to improve your pet’s health.
