Convert your pet to a green one!

With "green" pet food, biscuits and other tasty treats available on many store shelves, pet owners now have a wide range of organic and earth-friendly options from which to choose.

But increasingly, owners are finding they can also make environmentally friendly choices that go beyond the food bowl with several new options available! The Good Dog Company makes leashes, collars, harnesses and toys with organic cotton and sustainable, natural hemp. Hemp is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-microbial so it's resistant to mold and mildew. Bowsers Pet Products manufactures a line of eco-friendly pet bed made out of polar fleece which is made from recycled plastic bottles and the foam is made from soy and is biodegradable. For dogs who want to beat the heat in an earth-friendly way, Gramercy Distribution, based in New York City, markets the Cool Vest. Unlike many other cooling vests, the product is not filled with chemical gels and requires no refrigeration. Maybe we people should get one ourselves! It'll be useful for those who can't stand the heat here!

Heh Heh Heh.. Well I don't feed my cats organic food as they don't like it but i do feed them dolphin safe food, so my conscious would be free from any guilt of accidentally killing a dolphin. So go ahead and try out organic food for your furry loved ones, who knows they might convert to a greener lifestyle ;)

Tips of the day: Try not to use tick and flea meds for your pet. It's bad for your pet's health as it depletes their immune system and we shouldn't be in contact with it anyway cos it is bad for us too.. Try adding Brewer's Yeast or Garlic to your pet's meal or use an essential oil to repel unwanted bugs :)
