3 tips to be an eco-friendly pet owner

Sustainable is the new trendy in absolutely anything these days. Businesses are going green, consumers start living an eco-friendly life, and everybody wants to see a green logo on everything they buy or anywhere they go. But what about our pets? Can we help them be eco-friendly too? You certainly can! All you have to do is to adjust your responsibilities as a pet owner in a sustainable way. Here are 3 tips that will help you become an eco-friendly pet owner: 

1.      Buy only eco-friendly products

It should go without saying that the number one rule in becoming more environmentally-responsible is to stop investing in things that destroy our planet. So, if you buy green and sustainable offerings for yourself, why can’t you also do it for your furry friend too?

According to a study in the US, 163 million dogs and cats consume about 25% of the country’s total calories derived from meat. Obviously, this contributes to greenhouse emissions which the study says that is the equivalent of 13.6 million cars. So, as a solution, many pet food producers have found an innovative way of producing food that is not only healthier for our pets but also less damaging to our planet. The eco-friendlier option for pet food is created with crickets and worms instead of meat or fish.

Moreover, another eco-friendly change you should make as a pet owner is to purchase pet toys and accessories that are sustainable and durable. You don’t have to deprive your lovely furry friend of their favorite plastic ball when you take them to the kennel gardermoen to play, all you have to do is to replace it with one that is made from recycled or sustainable materials.

2.      Use non-toxic grooming and pest protection products

Pests such as fleas and ticks are very unhealthy and uncomfortable both for your pet and for you and you should certainly take your pet to the dyreklinikk nittedal as soon as possible. No pet owner would want to see their felines or dogs suffering from itchy and irritated skin. Unfortunately, most traditional flea and tick control products such as collars, topical treatments, sprays, and dust include very toxic chemicals that can harm both your pet’s health and our environment.

So, instead of using dangerous chemicals to keep pests away from your lovely pet, you need to spend more time to wash and groom them regularly to ensure there is no way ticks or fleas can remain in their coat. If you don’t have enough time to do it yourself, you can take your dog or cat to the kattehotell where experts can clean and groom them correctly.

3.      Prevent pet waste pollution

It is common sense that all pet owners need to clean up after their pets. However, some still forget about it and this affects our environment. So, if you want to be an eco-friendly pet owner, never leave dog waste on the ground.

It is possible to be an environmentally-responsible pet owner. All you have to do is to avoid toxic pet products and food and to make sure that you always clean up after your pet.
