When we think about living greener, recycling, buying organic foods and using more natural products in daily life are the main points that usually come to mind. Oftentimes we forget about the products we use for our pets. And we use a lot of them! Shampoos, flea and tick treatments, toys, treats, accessories and health care supplements are just a small sampling of the products we use and purchase for our lovable furry friends. Yet, the products available for pets are often not very eco-friendly.
I’m glad to share Arcanatura with you, a Connecticut based, eco-conscious company that makes and sells natural pet care products for dogs, horses and cats. Founded by three veterinarians who each bring years of experience and a commitment to creating functional and natural pet care solutions that get at the root of the disease, rather than just treating the visible symptoms.
“…multifaceted herbal veterinary medicine that is evidence-based, scientifically founded and clinically proven. Our research has found that our natural solutions are more effective than other products that contain chemical active ingredients.”
“…we utilize 100% renewable and sustainable ingredients like soothing plant essential oils and naturally anti-bacterial extracts, while also incorporating fair trade sourcing into our production. Love your pet, Naturally™ .”
We were happy to receive two Arcanatura products for our sweet dog, Ginger. At age 9, Ginger doesn’t move around as well as she used to. Though we do give her supplements, it would be wonderful to use a 100% natural product that we would feel more confident about treating her with. The Arcanatura Resolution-3 Omega-3 DHA Supplement seems to be a great natural solution for our aging pet’s needs. Omega-3 provides the much needed DHA for our pet which we are hoping will help her with her dry itchy skin and joint pain. Since the Omega-3 supplement is odorless and tasteless, we have had no problems getting Ginger to take her medicine! We squirt four pumps of the medication onto her food daily. While we haven’t been doing this long enough for a noticeable difference to be seen yet, I am excited about how she will be feeling in the weeks to come.
We also received the Arcanatura Tick’d-Off kit. This is a must have product for those of us who live in areas with a high tick population. The Tick’d-Off spray is made up of three concentrated essential oils – Thyme oil, Rosemary oil and Cinnamon oil, that will kill the tick within minutes of being sprayed. You can then use the included Arcanatura Tick Key to safely and quickly remove the dead tick.
It gives me such a peace of mind knowing that I have natural options available to help Ginger live a longer, happier and healthier life. This girl has to stick around as long as possible because I don’t what I would do without her!
