10 Natural Dog Products That Every Pet Parent Should Try!
If you aren’t familiar with them yet, bully sticks are the best chews to give your dog. They are a safe, healthy alternative to rawhide. Large chunks of rawhide, swallowed whole are indigestible and can cause serious illness or even death. Rawhide bones can be an inadvertent source of harmful chemicals and bacteria. I’ve personally had a terrible experience with rawhide. My dog Maybel became extremely ill with a bacterial infection after ingesting a rawhide bone. The experience was not only painful for her, but cost me hundreds of dollars at the vet, all because I wanted to save a few pennies and bought her rawhide as opposed to bully sticks. Never again.
Bully sticks are fully digestible. They are 100% natural free-range, grass-fed beef. They contain NO additives, hormones, or chemicals. I no longer need to worry about Maybel catching another harmful bacterial infection from chews.
It is an absolute nightmare trying to brush Maybel’s teeth, and to be honest, I have never been successful with it. She loves the taste of these chews. The outside core of the treat helps pets’ bad breath, while the inside core includes toothpaste that helps support dental health.
An affordable salmon oil, this all natural supplement is designed to help dogs look and feel great. The benefits of salmon oil are plentiful. The omega-3 fatty acids help to keep coats soft, and support joint, heart, and immune system function. It’s a delicious meal topper that Maybel licks right up.
This is the best odor eliminating shampoo I’ve tried. The scent is a heavenly blend of oatmeal, shea butter & aloe vera. The tear free, soap less formula helps to make bath time more enjoyable. This product is definitely on the pricier side, but you don’t need to use much of it at a time, so it lasts. The balance of essential oils that make up the shampoo come from a veterinarian recommended coat care regimen. The shampoo is cruelty free, vegan, and organic.
This product isn’t an Amazon Best Seller for no reason. This used to be my go-to product before I found Bark Potty. Maybel cannot seem to hold her pee for more than three hours at a time. Before we had Bark Potty she was constantly peeing in our carpeted apartment. This stuff completely removes all pet stains and odors. It works on carpet, hardwood, leather, furniture, pet beds, car upholstery, you name it. It’s a natural enzyme formula that is safe for children and pets. I still keep a bottle on hand for the occasional vomit.
This is the best dog food on the market & I’ve done my research! U.S. Farm-Raised chicken is the #1 ingredient. This dog food is made with natural, simple ingredients with added vitamins and minerals. It contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, no poultry by-product meal, fillers, wheat, or wheat gluten. I like to switch between the chicken & veggies, real beef & brown rice, & turkey & veggies. The price point is just right too.
Because I bring Maybel literally everywhere, I use this balm daily. Her paws literally walk on every surface imaginable. Since she was a puppy, her paw pads quickly became rough and cracked. I swear by this stuff now. There was a time when I ran out & didn’t re order for a few months & started to notice her licking and biting at her paws. I started using the balm again and it stopped immediately. I love that it’s all organic and not only nourishes what is already dry, but also provides a nourishing wax barrier to protect paws from the elements.
I love dog toys that are attractive. Maybel is a HUGE fan of toys. She scatters them around the house making them sort of just part of the decor. Therefore, I prefer toys that look nice. This little caterpillar is one of her favorites. Its organic cotton, chemical free, environmentally safe, and certified non-toxic.
Oven baked, wholesome, all natural, and delicious. Maybel loves the crunch of these peanut butter flavored treats & I feel good feeding them to her, knowing that they’re actually healthy!
1. Bark Potty
Of course Bark Potty is on my list. It’s a natural, eco-friendly dog potty solution that Maybel LOVES. We keep the Bark Potty in our living room, right on the rug. It not only looks great, but works great too. The product is shelf-stable so you can order in bulk to save money! One potty usually lasts about a month for us because she only really uses it when she’s home alone. She has a hard time holding in her pee when she’s alone for 3+ hours. We tried puppy training pads, but we couldn’t get her to go on them. Since we only need the solution when we’re out of the house, we didn’t want to train her to solely go on the wee wee pads-. We still wanted her to go to the door to go outside. We found Bark Potty and the problem was solved. We didn’t need to train her or even introduce it to her. We came home from work and there were no stains anywhere on the carpet. She was naturally attracted to the bark scent and happily chose to pee right on it as opposed to anywhere else in the house. Bark Potty is an amazing and affordable dog potty solution. To top it all off, the entire product is recyclable, all natural, and made in the USA.
