Pets are just as likely to suffer ill side effects from “traditional” medicine as humans. When they are sick, you want to give them something that will help them heal and feel better, and sometimes traditional medicine’s side effects are worse than the ailment they are supposed to be treating. That is why natural animal remedies are such a good thing. They are becoming more and more popular as people realize that they can treat their best pet friend with all-natural medicines that are not as hard on the pet as traditional medicine.
After you have talked to a vet and know what is actually wrong your pet, there are many different natural pet remedies. Natural pet remedies are made from plants and herbs found in nature, not drugs manufactured in labs. There are natural remedies for treating bad behavior to bad breath, poor health to better immune systems, and everything in between. Natural pet remedies are non-habit forming, so giving them to your pet is safe and worry-free. They are usually much gentler for your pet and usually just as effective.
For example, flea removal is something nearly every pet owner will face at one point, but the shampoo used to treat it is harsh on your pet’s sensitive skin. Luckily, the natural remedy or treating fleas is gentle: Just add a couple of drops of lemongrass oil to your pet’s regular shampoo. Treating minor cuts with natural pet remedies is so much better than using traditional medicine because pets tend to lick their wounds, and they will not get sick with natural remedies. Just add a bit lavender oil and water to wash the wound.
If you are looking for a gentler, safer way to treat your pet, natural remedies are definitely something to look into.
