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.
