Celebrate Earth Day with Eco-Friendly Pet Care Tips


Happy Earth Day from all of us at Bregman Vet Group!

Today, we are all looking for ways to give back and make our lives a little bit more eco-friendly – but what about your pets?  How do we reduce the environmental impact of our four-legged friends?  Here are a few tips to help you “green” pet care.

Eco-Friendly Pet Care Tips:

  • Spay or Neuter Your Pet – There are 70,000 puppies and kittens born every day in the United States.  In order to prevent homeless animals, it’s important to have your pet spayed or neutered.  As an added bonus, spaying and neutering will help your pet live a longer, healthier life.  The process reduces or eliminates the possibility of uterine, ovarian, and testicular cancer.
  • Choose Natural and Organic Pet Foods – These pet food products use meats from animals that are raised under sustainable conditions. They’re better for the environment and don’t contain pesticides, hormones, or artificial preservatives.  Just make sure that they meet USDA guidelines!
  • Clean Up After Your Pet – We love to take our pets on walks on nice days, but remember to clean up afterwards.  Carry a plastic bag with you so that you can pick up your dog’s poop.  You can even opt for a biodegradable poop bag so that the products will eventually break down.
  • Choose Sustainable and Recycled Products – Buy pet toys that are made from sustainable or recycled materials.  Instead of using new, raw materials to make your toys, you’ll have more eco-friendly toys for your pet to play with.

Do you have any questions about your pet’s health or how to make your pet care a little bit more environmentally friendly?  Give us a call our schedule an appointment at one of our offices below.  We’re happy to help!
