But, when buying pet products, pet owners can make an effort to be conscious consumers, taking into account the impact that their purchases have on their pets, their health and their environment. Below please find of my top pet products choices, concerning necessary pet products:
Buy Local After countless pet food recalls, it is no surprise that owners are cautious about what they feed their pets. Buy pet foods made with human-grade ingredients and that contain no added pesticides or hormones, use minimal processing, and are higher in vital nutrients. Consider pet foods like Evanger’s, a company that sources its ingredients within 50 miles within manufacturing facility.evangersdogfood.com.
Dealing with Odor Body odor could include odor emulating from your pet’s mouth. Most pets before age three suffer from canine dental disease. As concerns about chemicals and the environment grow, pet parents are selecting products with fewer, more natural, but equally effective, ingredients for themselves and their pets. Vet’s Best Dog Dental Care Gel Toothpaste uses key natural ingredients, including Neem Oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract and Enzymes to cleans away tartar and plaque, while whitening and brightening teeth and getting rid of doggie breath. Cleaning a dog’s teeth can be a challenge but the new, user-friendly tube makes it easy to for pet pet parent to use. Vetsbest.com
More is less Cat litter is one of the most purchased pet products on the planet. Clay litter with its dust is not only harmful to your cat’s health but to your health, too. Additionally, these cat litters are not biodegradable. Consider a healthy and environmentally friendly litter like World’s Best Cat Litter. Powdered by corn, World’s Best Cat Litter concentrated granules trap odor deep inside and form tight clumps on contact. Pet parents are able to use less litter and receive an outstanding odor control with less mess. Lastly, it is septic sank safe. So flush away. worldsbestcatlitter.com
Donation with purchase Do any of your pet purchase directly contribute to people, places or other pets? To celebrate the the centennial of the National Parks Service, dated on August 25, Carolina Pet Company teemed up with Pendleton to create the Pendleton Pet Collection. A portion of the sale of the collection’s items such as beds (made from recycled soda bottles), portable food bags and water bowls, leashes, collars and coats is donated to help preserve our national parks.carolinapetcompany.com.
Be kind to others Cats and dogs contribute dander and allergens to indoor air pollution. Because of their microscopic size and jagged shape, pet allergens easily stick to furniture, bedding, fabrics and many items carried into and out of the home. Animal dander is easily spread through the home and out to public places like schools and hospitals. It can be found even in homes, buildings and even, on people without pets. So be kind to allergy suffers, if you do have a cat or dog, keep your clothing free of pet hairs by using Butler Home Products Evermore Pet Plus Fur Erase Lint Roller and the Pet Hair Removal Sponge. The Lint Roller will tackle hair & debris clothing, while he ergonomically sponge will life hair from clothes and furniture. cleanerhomeliving.com
