Holistic Home Pet Care

August 1 2020

Here at Santaluz, we are proud to be able to offer our clients both holistic and traditional veterinary care for pets. This allows us to give the best of both worlds, giving pets great care in the most non-invasive ways possible. Of course, there’s no reason you can’t do the same at home! A San Diego, CA veterinarian offers some suggestions on holistic pet care below.


Food

Holistic pet care focuses on health and wellness from the inside out. That starts with what you put into your pet! Choose brands that use whole, high-quality ingredients. Avoid things with labels that read like science experiments.


Bedding

Good bedding is very important! It helps your pet sleep comfortably, and insulates them from chilly floors. Choose bedding that uses sustainable resources, such as hemp fibers.


Plants

Plants really do add a sense of peace and tranquility to your home. They also filter the air! Just be sure to choose only pet-safe plants. Your furry pal may also enjoy some wheatgrass, which is both packed with nutrients and totally safe. Check the ASPCA site for more suggestions.


Supplements

Many pets can benefit from taking herbs, vitamins, and/or supplements. Fish oil, for instance, helps with stiff joints, while fatty acids can be helpful for allergy-related skin problems. Just check with your vet before ordering.


Massage

A good massage can help soothe stiff muscles, improve circulation, and increase flexibility and range of motion. It’s also relaxing! Treat your pet to regular massage sessions.


Toxins

You may be surprised at how many toxins are lurking in everyday household products! Opt for organic, naturally-sourced products, especially when it comes to things like food and cleaning agents.


Fitness

Part of leading a healthy, holistic lifestyle is making time for fitness. If you have a dog, take your canine buddy to parks and trails sometimes. You and Fido will both benefit from the fresh air, sunlight, exercise, and change of scenery. If you have a kitty, take time to play with her regularly.


Preventative Care

One great thing about holistic care is that it also focuses on preventing illness. Keep up with your pet’s veterinary care needs! As the saying says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.


Please reach out to us if ever we can be of assistance. As your San Diego, CA veterinary clinic, we’re here to help!
