Our dog, Shiner, has been working hard at testing these natural pet products with a little help from her humans. We've been using salmon oil, natural flea repellent, herbal skin ointments, ear cleansers, natural dog food, and natural dog treats all made by Only Natural Pet, which is now available at Pet360.
Only Natural Pet was founded on the belief that a natural lifestyle contributes a longer and healthier life for our pets. I shared Only Natural Pet's story in the first post of our campaign if you'd like to know more. Only Natural Pet is a complete line of natural pet products that are formulated by a holistic veterinarian to be biologically appropriate for dogs and cats. The products are also made using human quality ingredients with human quality standards.
It was hard choosing which Only Natural Pet products from Pet360 to test out with Shiner because there were so many to choose from. Aside from the products I chose to test and review, they also have natural cat litter, natural cat food, vitamins, supplements, and much more.
Pure Salmon Oil
Salmon oil is very beneficial for both dogs and cats. It's a source of essential fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids that can help improve your pet's skin and coat, help their inflammatory response, maintain cellular health, and it supports the cardiovascular and neurological health of your pet.

Shiner has itchy skin, so I thought she might benefit from taking salmon oil every day. I just give her a few pumps of Only Natural Pet Pure Salmon Oil in her food each day and she absolutely loves it!
I was expecting the smell to be strong but it actually doesn't smell like anything at all to me. Shiner has only been using this oil for a few weeks now, but I do notice a slight decrease in the inflammation on her skin.
Grain Free MaxMeat Air Dried Lamb & Cod Dog Food
If you're like me, you may have considered a natural dog food that you prepare yourself but are too scared that you'll mess things up. I also don't have the freezer space for a raw diet. Let me just say that this food is an amazing answer to these problems.
These are the things that really stand out to me about this dog food:
- 90% meat
- No artificial colors, sugar, or fillers
- High quality ingredients.

The pieces of food remind me of small chunks of meat jerky and are hard. The food smells exceptionally meaty when I open the bag. And yes, Shiner loved this food very much!
Natural Dog Treats
Shiner was pleased to get the chance to taste test an Only Natural Pet Grab Bag of Dog Chews. She got a variety of beef chews, all of which she loved consuming! Her grab bag came with beef products like beef trachea and Free Range Beef Stripes. Each Grab Bag contains Only Natural Pet's free-range, all natural, hormone free treats and chews.
Herbal Ointment for Skin
Only Natural Pet's Herbal Ointment is a product that is helpful for your pet's skin. It can be used on mild skin infections, hot spots, and other skin irritations your pet might have. The Herbal Ointment contains the following:
- Calendula Flower which inhibits growth of bacteria and fungus and speeds up cell reproduction for faster healing.
- Eucalyptus which helps reduce inflammation.
- Marshmallow root for soothing cuts, scrapes, burns, and wounds.
|I like to lick my paws!|
I have been using this mostly on Shiner's feet, and I think it does help some. The only problem is that she wants to start licking it off as soon as I put it on. Thankfully, it's a natural product so it's not harmful if she licks it. She doesn't like when I apply creams or ointments to her usually. We will continue using the ointment on Shiner's paws for some relief of her itchy skin.
Natural Flea Repellent
I've been looking for a natural flea repellent and was excited to see a monthly topical squeeze-on product made by Only Natural Pet at Pet360. I've been using their Herbal Defense Squeeze-On Dog Flea Control.
I applied the product as directed. Things were going great for a week, and then I found three fleas on Shiner. I kept a close eye on her for the next few days and didn't see any more fleas again. They must have just hitched a ride from out in the yard.
After 2 weeks, I began to find more fleas on Shiner. I would say that this product lasted about 2 weeks for us. The thing with natural flea repellent is that you have to be much more diligent with flea control. This means you may have to treat your yard and house, as well as use additional products on your pets.
It's impossible to treat my large 4 acre field for fleas, so I am going to work harder and find a product that I can use in addition to the Herbal Defense Squeeze-On Dog Flea Control, such as a shampoo or spray. I would still recommend this product even though it did not last a month for us. Many of the chemical flea repellents I've used last only 2 weeks as well.
Ear Care with Tea Tree Oil
Shiner's ears get dirty often and require a lot of maintenance. Only Natural Pet Ear Care with Tea Tree Oil is a natural ear cleanser with Tea Tree oil, witch hazel, and Echinacea that cleans and disinfects your dog or cat's ears. I love the way this ear cleanser smells. Shiner's ears have been in very good shape since using this ear cleanser and I'm very pleased with the results.

Remember that going green doesn't have to be an overnight thing. You can take things one step at a time by giving a natural dog treat, using a natural ear cleanser, or even just adding some natural supplements to your pet's diet.
