There has been a lot of head way made during the last few years to take a closer look at what we are doing to ourselves. Just what are we exposing our bodies to. Along with this new look on life, we have begun to include taking a look at the lives of our pets. They are far worse off than we are really. At least we eventually recognize the physical signs that indicate something may be wrong in our homes. If we begin to develop allergies and experience breathing problems, then we are astute enough to start taking a look around the home to see if there is anything there that could be affecting us. Many times physical sign are not apparent, and our alert comes from generally not feeling well.
Our pets don't have the luxury of speaking out and telling us they don't feel well. Yet there could be and most likely is at least some environmental dangers within our home that is having some type of adverse effect on their health.
