Everyone loves their pets. Dogs and cats are some of our most beloved friends and family members. So, we always want to make sure that our favorite friends are taken care of. But with so many people spending so much of their hard earned money taking care of their pets, we think that there has to be another way. Here are a few suggestions for those hard working dog moms and cat dads on how to take care of their pets naturally.
Vitamin E is one of the best remedies for dogs and cats, especially on their noses. Dogs and cats noses are extremely sensitive, especially after a long hard run or a hot day. Vitamin E oil rubbed on dry parts is a great option to prevent their dry skin, or by feeding them vitamin E oil (through pill form) to help soften their skin and hair.
Another great way to keep your pet healthy on the outside and the inside is to feed them yogurt. Plain yogurt is a great way to keep the good bacteria in their stomach healthy and happy. And the plus is that dogs love yogurt. Not only will good bacteria abound in their stomach, but they will love you even more!
Lastly, pets are messy, crazy, and rambunctious. But we love them anyway. Sometimes though, pets will get into a lot of trouble and may get a little scraped up. If your pet suffers from the occasional wound or has some swelling, whether on their feet, ears, or anywhere else, an Epsom salt bath can help. Either soak your dog in an Epsom salt bath, or soak a towel in a salt bath and drape it over your dog’s wound.
If you want to take care of your pet, be sure to use the options you have in your home!
