This year, National Holistic Pet Day falls on August 30th and the holiday provides a good opportunity to think about your pet’s daily lifestyle. The definition of holistic reads, “Relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts.”¹ This special day has an interesting background and helps pet parents understand what holistic truly means and how whole food nutrition is key to your Holistic Pet.
History of National Holistic Pet Day
National Holistic Pet Day was founded by Colleen Paige of Animal Miracle Network. She is considered to be one of America's premier family and pet lifestyle experts. She has also founded such holidays as National Dog Day, National Cat Day, National Kids & Pets Day, and several others. Ms. Paige has said of National Holistic Pet Day, “I want people to understand that with the already short life spans our pets have, they need a fighting chance these days to live as long as they were meant to. Pet owners really need to start looking at their pet’s diet, lifestyle and environment. I want to ensure that I have done my best to bring about public awareness of the need for a healthy lifestyle with our pets. I don’t blame myself for Tinkerbelle’s death, but now that she has died from cancer – I know I could have done better. I don’t want anyone else to have to feel how I feel…wondering if I could have prevented it.”²
Whole Body, Whole Food, Whole-istic Pet
A holistic lifestyle is one that takes into account your pet as a whole – mental, emotional, and physical. A holistic diet addresses the whole pet by optimizing their body's ability to utilize the nutrients in their food and increasing their potential for health and well-being. What better diet to fit the holistic description would there be than one made completely from whole food ingredients? Nature's Logic strives to provide complete, high-quality, species appropriate nutrition for your pet by using only 100% natural ingredients. We never add chemically-synthesized vitamins, minerals or other trace nutrients, to ensure that your pet is not exposed to the potential toxicities associated with these man-made substances. You can feel confident and have peace of mind when feeding Nature’s Logic. For more information on our foods, visit www.natureslogic.com.
