Just as you wouldn’t use harsh chemicals on a newborn baby, you should also try to avoid chemical-packed pet care products. Fortunately, as people move toward Earth-friendly and natural goods, more and more all-natural pet products find their way to market. Choosing to go all-natural for your pet may reduce your overall pet care product choices, but what you do end up using will be much better for your best friend. Here are some of the many benefits to switching to all-natural pet products.
1. A proven track record
Many forget that chemical and synthetic products are somewhat new arrivals on the shelves of markets and pet stores. Natural remedies, on the other hand, have been around for centuries and are time-proven solutions to common maladies facing your pet.
2. Natural products are good for the environment
Chemicals eventually make their way back into our water supply, our air and our soil, thus damaging our planet and wildlife. Our pets interact daily with the planet, and when the environment is chemical-laden, expect your pets to ingest chemicals, too. Natural products do not have these nasty environmental side effects.
3. Synthetic compounds can damage an animal’s skin and fur
Natural flea and tick remedies, on the other hand, have essential oils that benefit an animal’s coat and skin while ridding your pet of fleas and ticks.
4. Pesticides used in pet shampoos can trigger adverse reactions in many animals
These range from simple allergic reactions to premature death. Avoid these pesticides, choose natural, and know that your pet is safer.
