Pets are part of our families and deserve the same quality natural products we want for our children. In fact, if your kids spend as much time snuggling and playing with their pets as mine do, that contact could expose them to nasty chemicals in mainstream pet products. For this reason, we never use [amazon_link id=”B00008DFGY” target=”_blank” ]Frontline[/amazon_link] or other such chemical treatments for pet pests. We rely on [amazon_link id=”B0019LRZ2A” target=”_blank” ]essential oils[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”B0016BFD4K” target=”_blank” ]Dr. Bronners[/amazon_link].
What you feed you pet is just as important as what you put on their skin for keeping your family safe. Even though pets live shorter lives than humans, they still deserve quality food made from quality ingredients.
We recently discovered from a good friend a “groovy” pet store called Humboldt Pet Supply, which has a local and online presence:
Humboldt Pet Supply is dedicated to keeping your pet healthy and your planet green. Our goal is to provide pet owners with better options for pets and the environment by featuring products that are organic, sustainably made and whenever possible, LOCAL.
We are a proud member of 1% for the planet which helps support Humboldt Wildlife Care Center and the Environmental Protection Information Center.

I have noticed that my pets gobble up quickly truly natural pet foods compared to when we have to resort to other brands. In fact, my dogs won’t eat the really crappy brands like AttaBoy.
I try to use the same standards for pet care that I use for health and beauty. Is it safely edible by a human (although not recommended)? If it is, then you know it is safe.
Please check out Humboldt Pet Supply! They have so many wonderful products and healthy alternatives for your furry family members!
