Holistic Pet Day is coming up on August 30th. Here at Santaluz, we are happy to offer holistic care options. We strongly believe that being able to combine holistic care with more high-tech modern medicine allows us to customize our furry patients’ care regimens and offer the best of both worlds. While Fluffy may just yawn and blink if you were to tell her that, she can definitely benefit from a holistic care regimen. A local Carmel Valley, CA vet lists a few things to put on your to-do list below.
Plants can really help improve your air quality. Plus, kitties like to hide behind green leaves and pretend they’re tigers. Buy or plant something new! Just take care to only get things that are safe for your furry friend. You can check the ASPCA website here for a full list. (Tip: Plant some cat grass or wheat grass seeds in an old litterbox or storage tote. When it grows in, Fluffy will have her own little lawn to look self-satisfied on.)
Get A Kitty Fountain
Our feline buddies often prefer to drink running water? Get Fluffy her own little fountain to drink out of. This is a great way to help keep your furball properly hydrated!
Revisit Food Choices
Proper nutrition is crucial to keeping your cute pet happy and healthy. Take a look at the ingredients listed on your furry buddy’s food. If you’re seeing a lot of things you can’t pronounce or identify, it may be a good idea to switch Fluffy’s brand. Ask your vet for advice on this.
Yoga is great for stretching and relaxing, two things kitties excel at. Try something new!
Clean And Declutter
While feng shui doesn’t technically fall under the veterinary care umbrella, there is a lot to be said for having a home that feels clean, cozy, and welcoming. Give your place a makeover by doing a deep clean and getting rid of unwanted items. Use non-toxic, eco-friendly products. (We suspect Fluffy will be more than happy to supervise.)
Self care is crucial for our mental and emotional health. Relax with a good book or movie and your feline pal. We all need some R&R!
