We all love our pets and want nothing but the best for them. We must, otherwise the pet supplies industry wouldn't be at $60 billion a year and growing. In an industry that large, however, most companies are just in it for the money and aren't worried about Fido's health. Here are a few reasons you should reconsider the food, toys, litter, and any other pet supplies you have for your furry family member.
It's Much Healthier
Imagine for a second that you ate nothing but processed foods all day, every day. You'd develop all kinds of health problems - obesity, high cholesterol, allergies, etc. Now take a look at Fido's bag of food. I bet it's full of fillers like corn and grains. Open up your dog or cat's mouth and look at those teeth; tell me those are teeth that have evolved to eat corn and grains. You can't! Those are teeth that are used to eating meat. Choosing an organic diet for your pet usually means he or she will have more energy, fewer health problems, and be generally much healthier.
The Environment Won't Suffer
When you think of pet supplies, you probably don't think about how they damage the environment. Think back to all of the little plastic toys or synthetic beds your furry friend has destroyed growing up. You probably threw all of these into the trash, where they eventually wound up sitting in a landfill. Switching to more naturally made toys will help keep plastic out of the landfills, and they're biodegradable.
Everyone mourns the loss of a beloved animal in a different way. For many people, the mourning process is unexpectedly painful and long lasting. Many pet parents find the prospect of mourning an animal even more challenging than mourning the loss of another person. After many years spent in the company of a special animal, the idea of sharing your home with another pet might be difficult to think about. How do you know when you are ready to make this important step?
Identify Your Hesitation
Before deciding to adopt a new pet or not, try to get to the heart of your hesitation. What exactly is holding you back? Why precisely do you feel reluctant? These are some of the reasons that pet owners are hesitant about bringing home a new animal:
They feel disloyal to the memory of the pet they have lost.
The do not wish to replace the memory of their lost pet with the presence of a new one
