The Best Organic and Eco-Friendly Pet Products
We consider them pets, but let’s be completely honest — they’re more like family members. With funky food not only having the potential to taint our bodies, our four-legged friends can suffer the same fate. It’s not enough to just put some food in a dish and say, “eat up” to our pals, or expect them not to feel the “funk” from chemically enhanced shampoos, medication or other grooming products. If you’re struggling to find a great natural outlet, consider these top 10 products, giving consideration to those who woof and meow.
Primal Pet Foods Raw Dog Food
No hormones or antibiotics in the meats that make up this food that’s sure to please your dog, whether they’re a pure bred Doberman Pinscher or a sweet little mixed-mutt that you rescued from local humane society. All vegetables used in this dog food mix are certified organic. The animal proteins in Primal Pet Foods Raw Dog Food make-up are organically fed. If you’re upping the ante with your own diet, why not change the whole family?
Old Mother Hubbard Wellness Canned Cat Food
Kitties love canned food. Rich, moist and apparently pretty darn tasty, although I can’t offer an empathetic opinion. In Old Mother Hubbard Wellness Canned Cat Food, your cat will enjoy human-grade meats, as well as a mix of organic blueberries and cranberries, offering antioxidants that are so helpful to urinary tract and digestive health. This product comes in a variety of flavors.
Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy
Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy ranks high on the list. Regardless of how clean your domicile is, your four-legged friend can still play host to those annoying little jumpers known as fleas. Whether they contract a few from a local dog park or a run on a local trail, it’s as easy and safe to get rid of them. Perfect for use in the home, you can use it in your pet’s fur, as well as in your carpet if needed, to rid your pet and your home of the uninvited guests.
Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Shampoo and Conditioner
Maybe it’s not the favorite activity of any pet, but Only Natural Pet’s Herbal Defense Shampoo & Conditioner will help wash away the bathing woes, fleas and ticks. It uses natural oils to help repel other nagging insects that can irritate your pet. Great for dogs, cats and especially for you, as this “medicated” shampoo won’t bring tears to your eyes due to chemical content, and will leave your pet’s coat clean and beautiful.
In all animals, overall health begins with dental health. Pets are active with their mouths, using them as tools to play, work, dig, eat and drink. They also use them to give us and the kiddos loving kisses. With that in mind, consider ProDen PlaqueOff, a great, natural way to keep your cat or dogs mouth clean. It’s a simple powder you can add to wet or dry food daily to help prevent the build up of plaque on your pet’s teeth.
Newman’s Own Organics Dog Treats
You can’t have a top 10 list and not give props to Cool Hand Luke himself. Newman’s Own Organics has made a wonderful line of organic pet foods and treats. These treats come in eight flavors and are bound to please any dog.
Castor and Pollux Cat Treats
With this being an equal opportunity top 10 list, we can’t offer dog treats and forget about the domestic feline. Castor & Pollux line of cat treats is an award winning brand, and come in multiple flavors, including that flavor that cats are crazy about — seafood. All ingredients are organic, and these treats are perfect for getting kitty from one meal to the next.

Bags on Board Dispenser
When your dog’s gotta go, he’s gonna go. The Bags on Board Dispenser holds 12 biodegradable “doggie bags” that will attach to any leash, and are perfect for cleaning up your dog’s unsightly contributions. In American English, they’re great, environmentally friendly poop bags.
Simply Fido Organic Plush Toys
Great for dogs (or even cats) who love to play with toys. Simply Fido Organic Plush Toys are possibly not the best choice for young pups who prefer to thrash fabrics. However, if they happen to do so, you won’t have to worry about the contents of these toys, as they’re made from organic fabrics.
