The popularity of holistic care is on the uptrend, both for humans and pets. The holistic approach, which involves achieving wellness from within addresses not just the physical wellbeing of pets but also their entire quality of life. This has given rise to products that rely on natural ingredients and provide a wide range of treatments for all kinds of pet needs.
For pet food, holistic products include special types such as dehydrated, freeze-dried, raw and home-made varieties. There are foods specifically formulated for pets with allergies and weight problems, puppies and senior pets. Foods which are gluten-free, high or low protein, organic and vegetarian cater to the different food needs of pets.
Vitamins and supplements include daily and multi-vitamins, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, essential fatty acids, probiotics to bolster the immune system of dogs, and nutritional supplements. There are also products for pets with anxiety or aggression problems, or those that need dental care.
Beyond the need for food and medicines, holistic pet products aim to satisfy the lifestyle needs of a pet. Grooming products such as natural shampoos and conditioners, natural salmon oil to improve a dog’s coat, herbal insect repellants, and homeopathic pet skin remedies are some of these. Ingredients like Wild Alaskan Salmon oil for skin care; Oriental herbs for the treatment of allergies; blends of fish, borage seed and Flaxseed with omega 3-6-9 are among the many natural ingredients used in holistic pet products. Natural dental sprays and herbal solutions for ear care are also part of the normal holistic product range.
