When it comes to grooming your pet, do you use products that are kind to them and also to the environment?
To get the best information on natural pet grooming products, I went straight to the source. Mikel Sacher, own of Fur by JMikel, says, "More and more we are learning that the health of our animals is as important as for the 'hu-moms.' I actually have become more aware of healthy diets since having my dog Zachary, who will turn 18 in summer 2012! I use coconut oil, which is rich in amino acids, turmeric for joints, cinnamon to lessen his sensitivity to sugars, which are everywhere (think carrots) and basically have him on a gluten-free diet – before it was vogue for people."
While those components are very beneficial for the insides, I asked Sacher how the natural ingredients are also beneficial to the environment. "The environment is benefited by all good choices. My line has the benefits of moringa seed extract, which is used to purify water in India and works as a natural flea and tick repellent," she explains. "By using good, beneficial products, you can avoid loading up on medications and keep your dog healthier; you can be proactive versus reactive. Fur products are also super-mild and long-lasting, which is environmentally sound -- and economically sound, too."
