A greener lifestyle can make a difference for you and your pets.
There are simple ways to be green and care for your pet earth-friendly.
Ever since Sugar developed an allergy, I’ve been conscious on using natural ingredients to clean the house and to care for Sugar. I learned many uses of baking soda, which is safe and non-toxic. I use it often to clean Sugar’s beds/blankets and as base for her toothpaste (Sugar gets a weekly brush). Another natural ingredient I often use is vinegar. I use mixture of vinegar and water to clean our wood floors. It is inexpensive, simple and pet-friendly.
How about making healthier choices for you and your pets?
In our house we enjoy good healthy foods. There are no junk food in our pantry. We always have vegetables with our meals. Fresh fruits are our choice for dessert. No soda or sweet juices in our fridge, just water (or naturally fruit infused water). One reason why Sugar enjoys fruits and vegetable as treats. I’ve also been mindful of what brand of treats to give to Sugar. I always read the label and check the ingredients. I prefer natural dog treats.
I also believe in natural remedies so when Sugar became an official senior dog (5 years ago). I’ve decided to eliminate her allergy medications. Her medications became a last resort, only when its really needed. Sugar does not do well on medications, as her energy level goes down. I’m fortunate to have an understanding vet that supports my natural views to assist Sugar with her allergies. It’s been a successful journey for Sugar. Along the way, I’ve discovered natural pet products and its health benefits.
Creating a greener pet lifestyle is an on-going learning process especially as Sugar ages.
Sugar is a happy Only Natural Pet consumer. Only Natural Pet was founded on the belief that a natural lifestyle contributes to a longer and healthier lives for our pets.

Tiffany & The Cattle Aussies says
Wish I could be as dedicated as you! Our household is on its way to becoming more healthy, but there is still some junk food in the human pantry. I’m working on incorporating more fruits and vegetables into my diet. At least my pups eat healthier than I do! We’re learning what some of the best and healthiest products are to use-thanks for sharing this!

I love this! We do pretty well at being all natural, but we could definitely do better. I already have planned to go all natural on the flea/tick preventatives this season. We started a little bit last year, but I am trying some new things (that are from Only Natural Pet Store) this year.
Madi and mom says
Thankfully I do not have any allergies. I do not go out.

BJ PUP says
BJ only gets healthy foods and treats. His mom on the other hand loves chocolate, Peeps, etc. She eats much less since she was on a diet and lost weight
Very cool! I have allergies too, Ma often has to give me benadryl. Luckily it doesn’t affect me, butts she would like to find a better way to stave them off. Since she can’t change my food, a better more natural allergy medication or preventive would be great.
M. K. Clinton says
I hate using flea & tick chemicals on Bentley. Do you have a recipe for a natural repellent?
Erica Myers says
What a great article! Thank you for all of the helpful tips and insights about how we can go Green with regards to dogs too! I didn’t realize how many natural and chemical free flea and tick products were out there, I really appreciated reading about that and plan on only buying products that are free from invasive pesticides. I have recently starting giving my three year dog a multi-vitamin everyday also and am working on switching all of his treats that are all natural and free from preservatives. Thanks again for the helpful advice!

Ann Staub says
Amazing guys! I hope that one day I can get to the point that you are at. The hardest part is converting my family members. Lily is picky and hates almost every vegetable. One thing I do a lot of these days is cook my dinners from mostly scratch with more whole ingredients.
