Homeopathy For Your Dog?
Just like humans, animals have a variety of needs and sensitivities. They can suffer from allergies that do not respond to chemical treatments, as well as other disorders. Because of this, pet owners are searching for all natural products to keep their pets happy and healthy even if they don''t have a specific health issue.
Five to ten percent of allergies in dogs and cats are due to food allergies. Additives can create diarrhea and itching and require extensive diet changes to find the exact culprit. Choosing an all natural food will prevent allergic reactions.
Unfortunately, our pets'' joint cartilage can break down just like ours. Typically, you can detect the issue because the pet will have difficulty going up stairs, rising from a lying position, creaking as they walk, or having the inability to run for long. Although there are several side effects, usually treatments include steroids, aspirin, or anti-inflammatory drugs. Natural products can provide natural steroids to keep joints healthy and strong. Other natural ingredients rebuild cartilage to relieve joint pain.
Natural alternatives such as cedar oil and rosemary kill ticks and fleas and sooth the itching without drying the skin. These natural choices are perfect for pets with sensitive skin or skin allergies that would be irritated by chemical treatments. Chemical free, these products are also safe for pregnant pets or pregnant owners. Well known natural pest killers include eucalyptus, citronella, and pyrethrums. A homemade powder mixed by using fennel, rosemary, wormwood, yellow dock and rue makes safe treatment to sprinkle on the pet.
Animals can experience stress, tension, and anxiety just like humans. Herbs used for humans, such as chamomile and St. John''s Wort, help pets cope with separation anxiety or stranger anxiety. This could be helpful when taking a trip to the vet or groomer.
Daily breath fresheners containing Mojave Yucca and mint oil alleviates pet breath. Neutralizing the odor, the yucca works with the mint that then leaves a fresh smell. Other natural products remove dirt, debris, and wax from your pets'' ears. These contain soothing aloe vera, which will not sting like alcohol-based mixtures.
Environmentally conscious pet owners now have natural alternatives for their four legged family members. Pets deserve a natural way to health and happiness, too.
