National Holistic Pet Day

What does “holistic health” mean? Simply put, it is a wellness approach that addresses the “whole” animal - body, mind, spirit,and fetch.  Fetch? When it comes to the well-being of our pets, any kind of movement is game—even fetch.

A holistic approach to well-being is nothing new for humans but applying this lifestyle to household pets is still a new and growing trend.  It starts with the basics of good nutrition, lots of physical exercise, and even mental stimulation.

Holistic health is all about health and wellness, not disease. It is a preventative lifestyle that incorporates the WHOLE animal.

National Holistic Pet Day is a chance to help improve your pets’ quality of life by strengthening each of the following:


Nutrition is the cornerstone of holistic pet care. A diet of natural and organic food and treats has numerous health benefits, such as boosting your pet’s immune system, which is an easy way to prevent diseases and other health problems. Our dogs’ digestive systems are not meant to deal with many of the preservatives and chemicals found in overly processed pet food. High-quality, natural dog food also helps our dogs fight allergies, intestinal problems, obesity, diabetes, and other food-related diseases. Check out for High-quality natural pet food and treats for both cats and dogs.

Water is one of the most important nutrients for a long, healthy life. That is true for both humans and animals. Again, just like humans, you should keep your pets’ water safe from fluoride, chlorine, and other chemicals. You should use filtered water and use stainless steel dog bowls instead of plastic.


One of the best ways to keep your dog healthy in body is plenty of exercise. It keeps your dog physically fit, it aids in weight loss, it lowers cholesterol levels, it decreases diabetes risk, lessens the risk of heart disease, helps with anxiety, and helps fight certain cancers.  An added benefit with exercising your dog is that it keeps you moving as well.  This will only help improve your health.  It is a Win- Win situation!

Mind and Spirit

Keeping your dog physically active is vital, but so is their mental stimulation.  A healthy brain will keep them happy, well-balanced, and rid of bad behavior, which is caused by boredom.

Along with muscles, joints, and bones it is important to take care of their skin and fur, too.  Using natural grooming products and flea and tick products, which include essential oils and extracts instead of synthetic chemicals, will encourage a holistic lifestyle.
