Pets are more than just animals. Our furry pet, feathered, and finned friends require time, attention, and as safe and comfortable a home as we do.
Our pet chiropractor in Boulder CO will share 3 Steps to Make Your Home Safe for Your Pet.
Step 1: Clean up your cleaning products
Harsh chemicals used in cleaning and laundry products can cause irritation, allergies and health decline in your pet. Looking for products that are safe to use? Click here to check out the EWG’s guide to healthy cleaning.
Step 2: Use all-natural bathing products
Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in the body and chemicals can be absorbed directly through it? When it comes to bath time for you and your pet, use products that don’t contain harsh chemicals. If the ingredient list is difficult to read, it doesn’t belong on your skin or your pets.
Step 3: Make playtime safe
Many pet toys are full of toxic substances that can be harmful to your pet making playtime a bit dangerous. One of our favorite toy companies is West Paw. All of their toys are BPA and Phthalate-free, Latex-free and FDA compliant. They are also made entirely in the USA.
