A few weeks ago, I shared with you our journey of turning to Natural living. And how it is a journey and not an overnight change. If you will remember, I mentioned that we were going green with our pet’s care by trying out some fantastic new Only Natural Pet products this month. These are products that are new to the Pet360 site. And they are made from all natural ingredients with high quality standards.
How we have been going green for pets
I’m excited to share with your our experience over the last few weeks after going green for our pets. Using natural pet products is important to our family. Our pets are just like family members.
But on a more superficial level; we also realize the logic behind going green to ensure them better health. If they are healthier and are well taken care of; that also means less expense on our part. Meaning we don’t have to visit the expensive vet as often. That is a great peace of mind for our hearts and our wallets!
It’s better to use the right natural pet products upfront now; than to have to pay expensive vet bills later because of the side effects of chemical filled, or subpar pet products down the road.
Our big concern at the moment is finding products that are affordable; but can also be used for both dogs and cats. We have Odin; our Chocolate Lab/Pitbull mix. And Wally; our short haired tabby mix cat. Odin is in love with Wally. He follows him around, tries to play with him all the time; and just wants to share everything. Wally; well he believes he is the king of the house. He has the attitude that he can boss Odin around as he wishes. He often sneaks into Odin’s food. He takes over Odin’s water dish. He steals Odin’s bed and toys.
So when I was looking for products; I wanted to be sure that what we used for one pet would be safe for the other one.
We also want to ensure proper digestion for both our cat and dog. But I didn’t want to be adding something that was safe for Odin into his food; but find out it was toxic for cats. Since Wally gets into Odin’s food all the time. I didn’t want to be using a pet treat that was safe for Wally; and not be able to also reward Odin.
Only Natural Pet has quite a few products that are great for both cats and dogs! And we just had to try them out!
We tried out some cat and dog treats, Vital Digest to help aid in digestion, a Stain and Odor Solution and herbal defense shampoo and conditioner. All safe to be used on both cats and dogs! And more logically; I love that I don’t have to stock 2 different kinds of pet shampoos and conditioners. Who has room for that in their cupboard? Not me.
We don’t bathe our pets very often. Both get rather traumatized by the experience. But during the summer both Wally and Odin like to be outside a lot. But that means they are also exposed to all the bugs. I can’t very well spray bug repellent on them. So to protect them; we like to use herbal defense shampoos and conditioners. It allows us to clean them up after a fun day in the grass and dirt. But the herbal blend is also a great way to protect them from all the bugs they will encounter.
Wally got to be our test subject on this project. He was so not the happy camper. But let me just say; the husband and I are both in love with the herbal defense Shampoo and Conditioner. It cleaned very well. And left Wally with a very shiny coat. And he smells oh so amazingly! Seriously the husband kept smelling Wally because his coat finally smelled nice! We had been complaining about how Wally was stinking lately. So this was such a nice change.
Both our cat and dog love to make messes in our house. Ok; so not really on purpose. The cat pukes all over our carpet. EWE! And the dog…well sometimes he gets scared and has accidents. Double EWE. I knew I needed the natural Stain and Odor solution for our carpets. Both the cat and dog love to lounge on our carpet. Odin is also known to lick the carpet. The last thing I need is him licking up chemicals left over from cleaning up their messes!
So here is a fun little test. Oddly enough it wasn’t the Cat, nor the dog that had the mess on the carpet. It was miss jade. Her diaper leaked. And it was GROSS! So I pulled out the stain and odor Solution and used it on her mess. And you know what? The stain and odor is completely gone! The odor was gone within 2 minutes. The stain was gone in 3 minutes. And I feel better knowing that I didn’t have to use harsh chemicals on her carpet. Safe for her, safe for the dog and safe for the cat!
I’ve since used it for minor messes with the cat and dog. Worked just as great for them. But miss Jade’s Diaper mess was far worse; so I figured you’d like to know that it can handle quite a lot of mess. And still come out shining.
We also got a few different products to aid in Odin and Wally’s digestion. So far it has been going smoothly. Wally hasn’t puked on my carpet yet. So that is good news. Though I think it is still too early to tell exactly how well the Vital digest and the Tummy relief work.
We have seen this last month; some great benefits for our sweet Odin and Wally by going green and using Only Natural Pet products. Their coats are more shiny and they seem much happier. With the exception of the actual bathing part. And we are quite pleased with the quality of the Only Natural Pet products as well as the economical price!
