Living a holistic lifestyle of health and well-being in harmony with nature has many benefits for us and our pets. Feeding dogs and cats natural or organic food instead of diets with artificial ingredients, colors or chemicals helps promote wellness.

Halo, Purely for Pets evolved from three guiding principles — balance, nature and love. For over 25 years HALO has adhered to the holistic philosophy that staying close to the ways of nature and eliminating harsh chemicals from a pet’s diet and environment influences pet health and well-being.

Wholesome natural diets that are highly digestible often result in less waste to pick up. Consider natural supplements for healthy skin and shiny coat or to help promote joint health. Check with you veterinarian on natural options to some medications.

Plenty of fresh air from lengthy walks, fun games, or interactive play keeps pets busy and happy. Quiet time with gentle ear rubs or a delicate massage can help both you and your pet relax and build a stronger bond together. Eco-friendly products for pets help protect them and our environment. Select organic toys made with natural fibers and fillers. Look for beds, collars and leashes that do not contain artificial dies and are made from recycled materials.

Grooming products should be natural, non-irritating and chemical free. Heavy perfume can be irritating to delicate senses. Halo’s CLOUD NINE® herbal shampoo is an infusion of pure botanical oils and extracts. It is gentle, safe and biodegradable.

Avoid harsh chemicals from non-green, toxic household cleaning products. Cats and dogs have delicate skin which can easily become irritated from chemicals used to clean floors, rugs or other surfaces. Select home products that are safe to use around children and pets. And now with the weather turning warmer, select chemical free organic lawn and garden products.

Bettie Hamilton heads-up Halo’s product development working closely with animal nutritionists and veterinarians to bring you wholesome food, treats, and supplements made with the highest quality natural whole food ingredients (like those you can find in your own kitchen). She shares stories and tips with hundreds of pet owners about Halo through speaking engagements, lifestyle articles and casual meetings on planes or in a park. Bettie’s pets Gracie, a Brittany, and Molly, a beagle, are often the first to give a paw up approval for new items, while neighborhood cats weigh-in on feline cuisine.

    I have been using Halo products for ten years now on my Basenji and everyone thinks that he is a puppy. His coat is soft and his eyes are bright. He feels good so he is active and full of life. He eats Spots Stew Chicken. I have tried to change to other foods as they say you should do every so often and he has had reactions to that so he has eaten the same food for 10 years. I add Dream Coat to his food. He takes a bath in the Halo Herbal Shampoo and smells so good after that. I use the ear wash to clean his ears after his bath. I have the salve for when he occasionally gets cut on something. I put a few drops of the herbal dip on his collar if he goes in deeper grass. Flea meds are not necessary. What can I say. Halo has been my Hunter’s life. Thank you for ten years of a healthy dog. When people ask me why I spend the money on him that way, I ask them what their vet bills are and the answers I get are sometimes in the thousands. Mine is next to nothing.

    Hi thanks for your post, I feed my 2 year old cockapoo halo because I know it’s good for her and I need her to have a long healthy life. I have thought about making her 2nd small feeding of the day homemade, turkery off the bird, carrots and sweet potatoes, she loves fresh food but I know I have to be carefull what I feed her, do u think I should be giving her supplements? Also; the vet has me give her flea an tic medicine which worries me, she gave her a vaccine to prevent kennel caugh since she goes to groomer and she ended up with a mild case of it from the vaccine, tell me, please, what the herbal stuff you use for fleas. Any advice you can offer that will help keep my maggie healthy is greatly appreciated.

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for writing in. If you are feeding your dog at least 50% of her daily calorie requirements as Halo dog food, you will likely be meeting her minimum daily nutrient requirements. A basic supplement like an omega 3 fatty acid and a vitamin-mineral supplement given once daily or several times each week would act a bit like an insurance policy. Halo’s Herbal Dip can be used as a natural deterrent for fleas and other insects on pet beds, fabric collars or other surfaces. You can also mix it into shampoo or other grooming products. Another natural flea control method for beds and surfaces is diatomaceous earth—which is a chalky type of substance which dries out the outer hard shell of fleas. Also a daily flea combing is another natural option for removing these pests.

      Hope this helps.

    I have tried to switch everyone of my cats over to Halo foods. Some will eat the Halo some of the time. Others are extremely difficult. We do not allow or feed any more dry food in our house so maybe getting everyone used to scheduled meals will be the path to success this time! I have found if cats eat dry kibble left out for them all day they will fill up on that and avoid the species appropriate foods they need for good health.

      Hi AJ,

      Thanks for your comments. Sounds like you are on the right path in your house with scheduled meal times for the canned food. You might also try Halo’s new Spot’s Pate canned food options. Some cats do not care for the more soupy texture of the original recipes and the pate is a great option for them. Also a little fresh cooked meat on top of the food might entice even the most finicky of feline!

      Hope this helps.
