*Quick note: I had this post scheduled prior to yesterday’s news. Thank you for all the kind thoughts and prayers. More to come as the week progresses.
We are big believers in going green around here, and we extend that to the herd. We choose natural cat litter for Newt and go for organic treats for her and the boys, when possible (I mean, squeeze cheese aside). This year I’m also tackling our great Dog Food Conundrum, which is to find a natural kibble that works for Emmett’s grain sensitivities and Cooper’s myriad allergies. We’re also diligent about non-toxic cleaning products – honestly, I make most myself – and pet-safe lawn care. In Indiana, we grew a ton of veggies organically, which we shared with the monsters.
One area we haven’t explored in our going green efforts: flea and tick protection.
When we lived in Indiana, ticks were a big problem. Here in Louisiana, that isn’t the case, so we could probably transition to an all-natural product… we just never thought about it. So, for this #PawNatural challenge, I’m going to start researching options, talk to our vet, and figure out if there’s a natural solution that would work for us.
Incidentally, Cooper is allergic to many of the ingredients in the most popular commercial product, so I’m hoping we can find an all-natural option that will work for him. I know in my Only Natural Pet intro post from last week, many of you want the same thing, so let’s see if we can figure it out together!
(Quick refresher if you missed the post last week: Only Natural Pet was founded on the belief that a natural lifestyle contributes to longer and healthier lives for our pets.)
So, through this project, the emphasis is on changing one thing that can help your pets live a longer, healthier life by making one natural change. For us, it’s going to be a natural flea and tick solution.
What can you do differently for the next month in an effort to go more natural in your and your pet’s life? Share via social media with the hashtag #PawNatural!
