Many pet lovers view their animals, as members of the family, and do everything they can to maintain their physical and emotional well-being. Therefore, it won‘t surprise you that they also look for new and better ways to love and care for their pets and farm animals. So let‘s explore some alternative treatments for your animals.

Today, we have many alternatives at our disposal to keep our furry, fluffy, and feathered friends healthy and happy. The natural pet supplement market has been flooded with products promising amazing health benefits; trying to choose the right one can be overwhelming. Feel free to do your own research or consult your veterinarian before making a final decision. Seek out a holistic veterinarian in your area.

The ideas and alternative treatments presented originate from reliable and researched sources but don‘t hesitate to seek the advice of a holistic veterinarian, when necessary. I would encourage you to always do your own research and get sound advice before taking action.

DOGS (continued)

EAR CLEANING


Gently wipe surface dirt out of your dog‘s ears with a cotton ball. Then gently rub some coconut oil into the skin to keep their ears healthy, itch-free, and comfortable..

DOG FOOD


Most of our furry companions suffer from a lack of nutrients, especially if they are fed only store-bought food. Here are some other foods you can give your dog that will add a lot of nutrients, anti-oxidants, and fiber to their diet. Some of these foods may upset their digestive systems slightly, so keep an eye on your dog when you first introduce them to new foods.

Blueberries

Although your dogs may love eating these, be careful to feed only a few at first, as too much too soon may upset their digestive system.

Broccoli

great for detoxing, can be fed cooked or raw, whichever your dog prefers.

Chia

sprinkle some chia seeds on your dog's food.

Kale

depending on your dog‘s body weight, add 1- 3 Tbsp. of chopped kale to their daily meal.

Kefir

A super probiotic and one of the best and least expensive ways to get healthy bacteria into your dog‘s digestive system is to add 1- 3 teaspoons of homemade kefir to his/her food 1-2 times daily.

Raw pumpkin seeds

can be ground or mixed whole into your dog‘s food daily. They are a rich source of minerals and vitamins.

Sardines

A rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to your dog‘s wellbeing.

Turmeric (Curcuma)

feed 1 Tbsp. either freshly minced or 1 tsp. powdered turmeric daily.

Your doggy is lucky to have a mommy like you! People don't realize how they're a very much a part of the family.

thanks @mikeycolon, yes they are a part of the family and all they want is to be treated well. A fine example of unconditional love!

Always treat a dog as a member of the family. Who sleeps outside. And eats mostly bones and scraps. And still loves you for it. What did we do to deserve dogs??

you are so right @daytondoes

Pets are part of our families and they give unconditional love. They deserve best treatment 😊 @starjewel via Kryptonia

thank you

shit now... a just miss my parents dog haven't seen in in over 1 year...

·

oh I'm sorry, now you will just have to go and visit, or at least get a photo!

I agree, we always need to talk with a veterinarian. All the same, veterinarians are experienced and trained doctors for our animals. But we always need to know about the alternative, there are situations when calling to the veterinarian is impossible, but we can really help.

·

sure the same applies to humans, there are many illnesses we can cure ourselves, but if you break a bone you need a doctor! thanks for visiting @amalinavia

Great tips for our smart little friends!
Love and unity!
Thanks!

thanks for visiting

Coconut oil is magic didn't know that it is also good for our furry friends for their nose and ears. My babies loves carrots, lettuce and cabbage. Sometime I wonder it they are bunnies in dogs clothing lol.

·

I think so, they seem to enjoy raw veggies, everything I through on the compost as as far as peels are concerned they go and eat. So now I keep most peels and boil them with other left over and add it their food. @watersnake101

These are some really amazing pet tips. I am going to print it out to have. I never knew rubbing coconut oil on a dry nose! Thanks.

·

you are very welcome

Awww, what a lovely dog. I'm a cat person myself but I really like the way you gave so much info about how to care for your pet in this post :-)

Great stuff @claudiaz and that is one happy looking pooch #steemitbloggers forever :-)

·

I did write a post on cats a while ago so I will attach it here for you. And thanks for visiting - https://steemit.com/animalphotography/@claudiaz/pets-tips-2--cats

I would love to see a Cat version too!

Thank you for these tips! I guess this will help my furry friends that lives with us!

·

I am sure it will @sgbonus

These are indeed great tips for people enjoying the company of dogs!

Especially taking the time to clean their ears, not everyone does this.

My sister just got a dog and these are some great advices! We never had pets at home and I was afraid it might be very difficult for that puppy. Your post makes it sound much easier now! Thank you for sharing!

·

you are most welcome @delishtreats

Hope my wife doesn't see this. Otherwise, our dogs will be eating better than we do ;-)
