Holistic Pet Care Day To-Do List

August 15, 2022
August 30th is Holistic Pet Care Day. We’re more than happy to get onboard with celebrating this one. Holistic living can be just as beneficial for pets as it is for people! This is also something that you can start small with. A local Sarasota, FL vet offers some information on this below.

Adopt A Plant

Pet-safe plants make your home look cozy and appealing, and give it a natural, earthy coziness. Pets also enjoy sniffing at plants, or peeking out around them. Check the ASPCA site here for suggestions.

Product Change

Limiting the harmful chemicals you have in your home will help both you and your pet. Replace things like cleaning products and plastic containers with natural, eco-friendly options.

Water Upgrade

Fresh, clean water is extremely important to your health and well-being. If your water quality isn’t great, look into getting a filtration system. Fido and Fluffy may also appreciate having a fountain to drink from: many pets prefer running water.

Nutrition Overhaul

One thing both holistic and modern veterinary practices agree on? Proper nutrition is crucial. Consider upgrading your pet’s food to a holistic brand. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.

Consider A Fish

Fish really aren’t in our wheelhouse, but there is something to be said for helping even the tiniest living beings live their best lives. Consider adopting a betta or goldfish. Just keep it in a spot your cat can’t reach.

Declutter

Decluttering and cleaning is not only good for your home, it’s good for your soul! Of course, Fido and Fluffy will be happy to supervise! Going through your things and getting rid of things you don’t use can also help improve the flow of energy through your home. Put Fluffy’s bed in a sunbeam, or get a natural basket for Fido’s toys.

Recycle

Is your feline friend ignoring that expensive cat tower you got her, and perching on the back of your couch instead? Are some of your pet’s toys so old that they are just scraps of worn fabric? Donate or upcycle them!

Relax

Holistic care means healing for the mind, body, and spirit. That means self-care! Enjoy some quiet time at home. Settle in with a good movie, book, or podcast, and, of course, your furry friend. Do you want to learn more about holistic pet care? Contact us, your Sarasota, FL pet hospital, today!
