The 30th of August has been designated "National Holistic Pet Day" by renowned pet and family lifestyle expert Colleen Paige. The holistic approach to living life comprehends that health is more than just being disease-free. It considers one’s wellbeing as a “whole” and includes having one’s mind, body, and spirit in fine feather.
National Holistic Pet Day is a great opportunity to consider incorporating holistic health to make our pet's life better overall. It’s time to realize that taking care of your pet’s overall health is much more than keeping them safe from fleas and worms. You must look after your pet’s physical, mental, as well as social wellbeing. And, the best part of holistic approach is that everyone benefits.
We must avoid eating junk and unhealthy foods as they can deteriorate our health. Regarding the lifestyle of our dog, it is the same. The consequences of frequently giving your pet unhealthy treats can be devastating. Feeding a natural, organic, and nutrient-rich diet will keep your pets in the pink of health and can help your pet maintain strong bones, immune systems as well as healthy skin, hair, and teeth. Also, make sure that your pet always has access to clean and fresh water that is free from contaminants like fluoride and chlorine.

Exercise is the key to staying fit. Plenty of exercises not only keep pets active but also aid in weight loss, lower cholesterol, decrease diabetes, lessen the risk of heart disease, control anxiety, and prevent certain types of cancer. One of the best ways to provide enough exercise is to include walking, running, swimming, and lots of playtime in your pet’s schedule. You can also practice “doga” at home. And, in this case, you’d also get moving with your furry bestie, so it’s a win-win situation.
Being mentally healthy is as important as staying physically fit. A stimulated mind will keep one happy, balanced, and at peace. Provide enough interactive toys, like an interactive feeder or toys that are specifically designed to provide mental stimulation to pets. Taking your dog or cat out to explore different places will also help, as it will give them a chance to enjoy new smells, sights, and sounds. And as you and your pet will meet more people and pets on the way, it will increase socialization too!
Bonus: A holistic lifestyle will not only improve the robustness and quality of your pet’s life but yours as well.
