Why Natural Pet Products?Alternative Animal

Hi I’m Roxanna Whittington and I’m passionate about caring for animals in the most natural, healthy, common sense way possible.

Alternative Animal natural pet products came out of my sincere love and appreciation for all animals, and for those of you, who like me, are longing for a more holistic and natural approach to caring for the animals in your lives. 

I created my first product Wormfree Naturally because I was sick of poisoning my horses with paste wormer every 3 months. This is the recommended worming protocol by veteranarians. As I was in the barn about to wrestle with an 1100lb animal to shoot a tube of poison down his throat, I had an epiphany. Why am I doing this? There has to be a better way. I seek out alternative health care for my self, why not for my animals?

That single decision changed my life and that of thousands of animals for the better. My adventure has taught me more than I ever dreamed of and caused me to question, well, everything that I had ever believed to be true. Wormfree Naturally has been wildly successful and has changed the way I care for all 5 horses, 3 dogs and 2 cats. And I have customers with cows, goats, and chickens who are all using Wormfree Naturally regularly.

I invite you to share in this journey with me and as I learn more about natural animal care and natural pet products. Some things I know, somethings I don’t know but one thing is for sure…. There is always a better way, and I am committed to finding it. Sharing what learn is a top priority for me and I provide many resources for learning within this website.

Blountville-20110920-00037I am a Natural Hoofcare Practitioner and I trim horses hooves in a very specific manner that is modeled after the wild mustang hoof. I currently maintain about 75 horses in my practice. I have 5 horses of my own that have been barefoot, without metal shoes, for over 10 years. I do mostly trail riding now but have been involved in many horse related disciplines over the years, such as, western pleasure, team roping, team penning, dressage, and hunter jumper.

I have always been one to question everything and was never satisfied with “it’s always been done that way”. I have been told more times than I can count that it’s not possible to ride without metal shoes or without a bit. Or, that I must use chemicals to deworm animals that there is no natural alternative.

Well, anyone who knows me very well, knows that where there is a will there is a way. And I will find it. Over the years, through solving my problems, I have come across some very good alternatives to the current mainstream methods when caring for animals. One of these turned into Wormfree Naturally. As I continued to see amazing results from using this product it occurred to me that there are surely other like minded people out there looking for a better way and just don’t know where to find it.

It is my most sincere hope that Alternative Animal natural pet products will become your go to when you are asking yourself if there could be a better way. I will continue to either create or source out the very best animal products that I can personally endorse and stand behind. This is my love and my passion and I am committed to a better way for all animals.

This started my journey and I have never looked back, or questioned my decision, one time.
