Natural Pet Solutions

Holistic living isn’t just for people anymore. . . everyone is including natural remedies into their pet care regiments. Everything from hip & joint care to flea control has herbal alternatives that reduce the amount of chemicals and “processed ingredients” that your pet is exposed to. People are turning to Coconut Oil, Garlic, and limited ingredient diets to solve skin and coat issues. Dogs also have mental health needs just like people– its difficult to diagnose what is causing anxiety and phobias in pets, so its always better to look for a holistic alternative such as aromatherapy or thunder vests before adding pharmaceuticals (with their own set of side effects) to your pups routine. Check out these articles below for more details regarding natural alternatives for common canine issues.

Yeast
