Natural Pet Care for your
Just as the name suggests, natural pet care is
all about using natural (sometimes called
alternative) methods and products for the
well-being of your pets and animals.
This can range from feeding and nutritional
requirements through to natural pet remedies and
even natural shampoos or flee treatments.
Natural pet care is very similar to
holistic pet care in many ways, the main
difference being that holistic pet care tends to
incorporate all methods for a complete lifestyle
approach whereas natural care is usually used to
describe a particular type of product or service.
Sometimes the two descriptions are used
interchangeably. It's probably more about
peoples' perceptions than anything.
These days there are many natural care
products and services available. For example,
there may be a shop or practitioner in your area
that specialises in natural remedies or products.
Many natural practitioners such as chiropractors
or naturopaths who normally treat people will
also treat animals. Lots of health food shops
also sell products that are suitable for animals.

We suggest that you seek professional advice
if you aren't sure. Try talking to your vet. Many
vets use complimentary medicines and techniques
and will usually be happy to discuss it with
Why not talk to friends or colleagues who have
used natural care and get their opinions as well?
They may be able to give you some good ideas
about what works and what doesn't.
Use the internet! There is so much
information out there on the world wide web, so
why not use it? Just keep in mind though that not
everyone who posts information on a website
actually knows what they are talking about, so
you may need to sort out the useful from the not
so useful. If in doubt, either discard the
information or ask a professional in that
