It may not always cross your mind, but your environment is also your pet’s environment. Many common household cleaners are filled with synthetic chemicals and toxins, and what you use to clean the floor is what your furry friend walks, naps, and plays on.
There’s your air to consider as well. You may be surprised to learn many fragrance products—from candles and air fresheners to perfume—are also filled with artificial chemicals and toxins. You breathe it in, and so does your pet.
Reducing the toxic load of your home benefits the whole family, including pets. While it may be overwhelming to think about every single product in your home that may increase the toxic loads of the people and animals who share it with you, making your space greener and cleaner doesn’t have to be daunting. Reducing toxic load and replacing your current products with natural alternatives is a step-by-step process.
If you’re ready to start removing toxins from your space, then the air is a great first step. Collect the synthetic fragrance products around your home and read the ingredients. What’s in your air fresheners? Room sprays? Plugins? Candles? If you aren’t comfortable with what they’re putting in your air, then it’s time to get rid of them and try something new.

Imagine the benefits of using nature to tackle the pet odors in your home, as opposed to whatever synthetic products you might be using now.
With fewer chemicals and toxins wafting through your air, you can have peace of mind about the huge step you’re taking to make your home a more natural environment, with fewer toxins burdening you and your furry family members.
