When you care about the environment, you care about the footprint and the paw print. But did you know that you can minimize your pet’s environmental impact? There are simple tricks you can do to green your pet care no matter if you're a guardian of a dog, a rodent, or a fish.
In Greening Your Pet Care, Darcy Matheson, a regular broadcaster and writer on animal care, explores ways of creating an eco-friendly and environmentally safe place for your pet. Matheson offers tips on sustainable pet care of different types of house pets: dogs, cats, rodents, birds, reptiles, fish, and mini pigs.
The guide includes practical information on greener care, from nutrition to habitat to activities, so you can reduce the impact you and your pet have on the environment. Matheson guides you through greening your home to ensure you create safe surroundings for your furry companions as well as greening your vet care.
For many of us, pets are like family members. They deserve our love and care. Caring for them in a more environmentally conscious way will help them live healthier and safer lives, and let you reduce your carbon footprint.
No matter if your household pet is a four-ounce gerbil or a 140-pound Great Dane, Greening Your Pet Care will show you that there are simple things you can do to make the lives of your companion animals less wasteful and harmful to the environment.
This is an excellent book, clearly and creatively outlining how simple things can make all of the difference when it comes to being a "green" pet parent. As an extra bonus, the book includes FREE access to a download kit, with DIY eco-friendly recipes and instructions for Household Cleaners, Non-toxic Dog Shampoos, Natural Flea Collar and much more. There is even a listing of online resources and forms for all types of pets.
