As we seek out more natural and holistic health care for ourselves, we are starting to look at ways we can incorporate natural health care for our dogs and cats into their lives. Our pets are, after all, a huge part of our family, and as they are living longer lives, we are looking at ways to keep them healthy using a holistic and natural approach.
Natural health care for dogs and cats can include a wide variety of treatments, from massage to Reiki healing, however, before we look into these in more detail we need to first define what natural health care actually is.
This is the first in a series of blogs I will write, covering natural health for our dogs and cats.
Please note I am not a health worker and do not have any medical qualifications, all information is based on my research.
When you become the lucky owner of a new puppy you cannot imagine this lively ball of fur aging and needing pet insurance for older dogs due to age related illnesses. Sadly people often take out pet insurance when their pets are young, only to cancel it as they feel they are not making use of the cover. Unfortunately, as our pets age, this is when the insurance policy is needed and kicks in. Our pets are as susceptible to old age type illnesses as we are.
According to the American Pets Products Association, Americans spent $18.11 billion on vet care in 2018, and this is estimated to increase to $18.11 in 2019.
As our pets become such a huge part of our families, pet owners want quality care and are prepared to pay for it. More people are starting to consider pet insurance for older dogs, however, this may not be that easy to do, read on to find out how you can cover your dog in its senior years.
We love our pets and our 4th July Holiday, but sometimes, these two do not mix so well.
Fireworks, families going on holiday, change in routine, these are all causes of stress for our pets. CBD Oil for Pets can help to lessen your pets anxiety and make the holiday period less stressful for the whole family.
While there is no scientific proof that CBD Oil can have a beneficial impact on our pets, there are many happy pet owners who are reporting daily on the amazing benefits their pets gain from using CBD oil, with the reduction in stress and anxiety being high on the list.
If you are concerned about your pet this long weekend, talk to your vet about using this natural and highly effective method to keep your loved pet stress free.
I have been truly blessed to have both my cats live to seventeen years of age. Sadly in the last 3 months both of them have died, our boy Felix, pictured above, we euthanized due to illness, and our girl, Amber, was tragically run over. Caring for senior cats can require a change in thinking and routine, but it is not hard to do.
Both cats slowed down as one would expect, but with their mature age came a new era in their lives. I loved them as much, if not more during their senior years. It may be because they become more demanding, more affectionate, more sociable and yes more needy.
Caring for senior cats is different to the care and attention they needed as kittens and adolescents, and understanding their needs and behavior changes is essential to give our mature friends the best possible old age care.
We love our pets and want to keep their health and well-being one hundred percent at all times. Sadly our pets do suffer from a number of illnesses, some out of our control. CBD products are increasingly growing in popularity as a holistic treatment for our pets for aliments such as stress, anxiety, nausea and cancer. I have searched for the best CBD products for pets, and have shared my review here.
CBD Oil for pets is being used to treat a number of aliments and is on the increase. CBD products for humans are taking the world by storm and as our pets have a number of ailments that are similar to us it was only natural that with time products suitable for them would be included in the range of CBD products on offer. Added to this is a shift towards holistic health for ourselves and our pets.
As with any new medicinal product, be it for use on ourselves or our pets, we need to be aware of what is on offer, and educate ourselves on the product. What are the pros, the cons, and what is all the hype about?
Our pets are precious members of our families, filling our lives with so much joy and love. Losing them is devastating, and dealing with the grief is a traumatic experience. When it comes time to deal with your pets body, knowing your options will help you cope with the decisions you need to make.
You will have to face the hard decision of whether to bury your pet or have your pet cremated. If you chose to go with cremation I would like to help you chose the right crematorium for you by explaining what you should be looking for from pet crematorium services.
If you are reading this and have lost a loved pet, my heart goes out to you. Our pets are part of our world, and when they die our grief for them is no less than that for a human. While we can never replace our pets, having a lovely memorial gift to remember them by is one way to help heal and keep a part of them near you forever.
Below I have reviewed a number of unique and stylish dog memorial ideas to remember your dog with, or if, like me you have lost a cat, you can certainly use a number of these memorial keepsakes.
While a number of these memorials are aimed at keeping your loved one’s ashes in, if you chose to bury your pet, you have the option to wear a piece of jewelry as a lovely reminder, or to keep your pets collar, some fur if you have any, a favorite toy, or photo in the urn or keepsake instead of ashes.
This is a raw post from my heart. In the last 3 months I have lost both my 17 year old cats. Felix, we decided to have euthanized a few months ago due to his declining health. I am still trying to come to terms with this, when we were faced with the death of our precious Amber yesterday.
Love to many people is their pet, whether they have four legs or two. Sadly the loss of a pet is devastating and leaves an emotional chasm that can feel impossible to cross. Our love for our pets is endless and knows no bounds, recovering and learning to move on after our pets have crossed over the rainbow bridge into the spirit world can be emotionally challenging.
Keeping Our Pets Close In Spirit
As humans, letting go, can be incredibly difficult, three months on from having my 17 year old cat euthanized I miss him more now than I did at first. While some people may decide to keep their pets cremains in an urn on the mantelpiece, this is not a suitable option for everyone, fortunately, there are other ways you can keep part of your pet near to you at all times.
