Here are some ways you and your pet can “go green” on St. Patrick’s Day!
If you’re trying to include the whole family in a St. Patrick’s Day themed feast, you can give your pup some steamed or raw, unseasoned green vegetables with their dinner. Broccoli, peas, green beans and celery are all good vegetables filled with nutrients that are safe to feed your dog. Your cat might go for a bit of steamed broccoli, but you may have better luck mixing a bit of cooked barley into their wet food. Cats are carnivores, and most believe veggies are best left for their bunny and tortoise buddies. Make sure your pets stay well away from any onions or garlic in the kitchen, as both are toxic to dogs and cats.
Ever think about how many plastic bags you use each year when picking up your dog’s mess? Multiply by 365, carry the one and….well, it’s a LOT! Consider switching to biodegradable dog bags or reuse plastic grocery bags instead of just throwing them away. Your cat’s litterbox can be green, too! There are several different options for biodegradable cat litter. Look for litter made of sawdust, wood shavings, paper, corn or pine. Remember, don’t flush your cat’s waste – always throw it away!
Your first instinct might be to throw toilet paper rolls, small cardboard boxes, bottle caps and scraps of fabric in the garbage or recycling. But why waste such amazing toy-making materials? Like toddlers, cats and dogs may exhibit far more interest in a cardboard box than the expensive toy you bought them. You can easily create fun toys and puzzles to enrich your pet’s life and engage their senses. If you’re a DIY kind of pet owner, check out these cat and dog enrichment ideas!
