National Holistic Pet Day

National Holistic Pet Day is celebrated on August 30 and is dedicated to taking care of the health of our pets. With the help of holistic medicine and proper nutrition, they will be able to lead a more fulfilling life and be distinguished by better health than eating inexpensive low-quality feed.


National Holistic Pet Day was created by renowned animal behaviorist and animal rights activist Colin Page in partnership with the Animal Miracle Foundation. The purpose of creating this holiday is to raise awareness among pet owners of the nuances that can affect the health and well-being of their pets.

Interesting facts

We usually hear about holistic medicine when it comes to people’s health. But taking a holistic approach to pet ownership is a new trend. It starts with the basics of proper nutrition, plenty of exercise, and even mental stimulation. Animals must be mentally active and interested, otherwise they risk falling into apathy and boredom. Take the time to learn how to care for your pet by encouraging them to be active.

How to take part

Celebrate National Holistic Pet Day with the health benefits of your pet:

  • If you are unfamiliar with holistic health care or have not experimented with it yourself, it will not be easy for you to apply it to your pet. Take a day to read up on how this new approach can change your own life, and you’ll become a much more vocal advocate for holistic pet care.
  • By making your own dog food, you know exactly what’s going on inside your pet’s body. Carefully study the nutrition of pets to ensure their health.
  • Introduce your furry pet to new experiences! Imagine that you practically do not leave the confines of your home and office. You would soon feel like you were slowly losing your mind! If you are a dog owner, go to a new park, forest, or field to experience unfamiliar and unusual smells and sounds that have never been seen before. Buy your cat some holistic toys for better brain and sensory stimulation.
  • Make sure your pet gets enough rest. Although it is important to stay active, it is also important to get enough rest. Make sure your pet has a comfortable place to sleep and relax.
