We love our cats and dogs, and we owe it to them to keep them healthy. After all, mercury in fish is just as bad for Whiskers as it is for you! Green pet care may cost a little more up front, but it’s certainly less expensive than future vet bills for sick pets.

Here are some tips to keep your pets healthy:

PhotobucketDon’t buy foods with the chemical preservatives BHA, BHT and ethoxyquin.

PhotobucketSwitch your cat’s diet around so they don’t get too much mercury exposure from fish.

PhotobucketBypass the by-products. Choose ingredients that are organic and free-range.

PhotobucketDon’t use insecticides on your lawn. They’re poisonous to you, but even more so to your furry friends.

PhotobucketFlea collars are toxic. Instead, vacuum often, bathe your pet, and look for safer flea repellents.

PhotobucketDon’t buy pet shampoo. There’s no regulation of chemical ingredients for pet products. Use a mild baby shampoo instead.

PhotobucketAnd most of all, love your pet and be kind! They depend on your for their care and will be thankful if you treat them as well as you treat yourself.
