Natural Ways to Take Care of Your PetIf you are anything like us, you understand that animals are a lifeline, a best friend, and a treasure. Whether you consider them part of the family, or head of the pack it’s important to do your part in keeping them healthy. Much like most humans, dogs will choose the unhealthiest route possible out of convenience. Jumping up and eating just about anything you have around (it means they trust you enough to eat your cooking, it’s a good thing I swear!) or casually throwing themselves out of balance by too much horseplay.  There are a few vital things to go over when you are thinking about your animal’s health, such as diet, digestion, coat, joints, and bladder.

Diet and Digestion:  Are you feeding them healthily? Are your pets digesting everything alright? You could know this if you’re the one that have to pick up after them!  Gastriplex (canine and feline) should help with any digestive issues your dog may come across.

Coat: Imagine if you never got the chance to wear sunscreen or put on lotion, and only got a few baths a year; not a great thought is it? If their coat is losing its sheen, consider switching up the shampoo that you clean the animal with to an all natural and organic one such as Thorne Unscented Shampoo With Vitamin-E. (It’s good for pets and humans!)

Joints: Just like you and I, as we get older our bodies just aren’t what they used to be. It’s hard to imagine that animals age that much faster than we do.  However the truth is by 4 – 5 years old it’s time to consider checking out their joints and taking precautionary measures to ensure their comfort.

Bladder:  One of the unfortunate things that can take our animals away from us prematurely and without much warning is a urinary tract infection. The truth is, you have to be spending nearly an abnormal amount of time with your animal to see the onset of symptoms right when they start. It’s a good idea to put your beloved animal on a urinary tract support system as a precaution.

It’s never too early to go get your animal checked out for health problems, and it’s never too early to nip those problems in the bud.
