Here’s the scoop from the WGSN Team on the latest pet trends worldwide

By M.G. Mauney

According to WGSN, international trend forecasting authority, pets are part of our family today and we are naturally extending our wellness mindset to them too. Aromatherapy, massage, dietary supplements, superfoods, and natural/holistic medicine sound like something for human wellness. But these trends are also gaining popularity among pet owners who want a more natural approach to healthcare for their furry family members

In fact, WGSN notes that even vets are beginning to use these methods, who cite these trends as natural-based approaches that are kinder than harsh, chemically-based treatments.

WGSN reports that pet symptoms such as anxiety, chronic pain, and immune issues are being treated with homeopathic methods. Some examples are using peppermint oil to help with stomach issues and using chamomile, balms and butters for skin problems. Some pet parents are even experimenting with Reiki, a Japanese spiritual practice that claims to harness healing energy.

On the more scientific side, WGSN reports that pet trends include an increased use of pheromones, sold in forms of sprays and drops, to help manage pet behavior and health issues. Another trend is an increase in the use of nutritional supplements and probiotics for pets with dietary or digestive needs, or for dogs with joint and bone problems. And now there are also powders, mixes, and blends galore of Superfood products for dogs and cats, loaded with nutrients and promises to boost your pet’s health to the max.
