How to reduce a carbon 'pawprint'!

Carbon Pawprint

Local vet offers advice on how to throw the planet a bone and go green with a pet!

With environmental issues constantly at the forefront of people's minds, Ash Barn Veterinary Surgery is offering 10 top tips on how to live a more eco lifestyle with a pet.

 

Ash Barn owner, Julian Peters commented:

"Our tips are not about denying an animal anything, but making different choices. It's the same principle as when you switch to energy saving light bulbs or canvas shopping bags."

  • If looking for a new pet, why not 'recycle' a pet and adopt from an animal shelter instead of purchasing one.
  • Use biodegradable pet waste bags that are often made from corn starch for collecting faeces.
  • Buy organic pet food; it may cost a little more but it's one of the easiest changes to make.
  • Pet toys are easy to make from simple balls of wool or toilet roll tubes.
  • Ensure that purchased toys are made from organic or recycled material.
  • Have a pet sprayed or neutered to help control the pet population.
  • Walk dogs close to home so there is no need to drive anywhere.
  • Try using natural remedies for flea repellents such as those that contain citrus extracts.
  • Add dog waste to your composter.
  • Buy natural dog collars and leads, such as those made from Hemp.
