With the dog food industry being so large that there is a lot of over lap, by that I mean look at the titles of dog food, you have organic puppy food, organic dog food, holistic dog food, natural dog food and further more all natural dog food. Each one can be differentiated, so that leaves a lot of choices for you to consider, Reading further we will look at what holistic dog food contains and is, we will then determine if your little or big guy actually needs organic dog food, next once you decide to change their diet what to look for incase there are any dog food allergies and lastly you have the chance to get dog foods secrets that will prolong the life of your dog by feeding the right food.

What is Holistic Dog Food

Thinking about what your dog eats is and has become a big consideration of late. What your puppy or dog eats affects every aspect of his health and well being. As I mentioned above there are many choices offered for dog food, and one of the most popular choices is holistic dog food.

There are numerous reasons why many dog owners including myself choose holistic food for their pet. The commercial or standard dog food on the market includes poor sources of protein. A dog’s protein is crucial their health, yet weak sources, such as whole corn, corn glutens soybean meal, and corn meal are used in many dog foods. Even though dogs require some grains, often time’s commercial dog foods also include grains as a replacement for meat. There are chemical preservatives found in dog food. Some studies have found that BHT, BHA, and ethoxyquin are present in many common dog food brands and may lead to liver disease and other medical problems. Some dog food includes animal parts like necks, heads, feet, intestines, lungs, spleen, and liver. Even though dogs would be eating such animal parts in the wild some dog foods have found Pentobarbital present, this is the chemical used to euthanize animals.

When we look at holistic dog food on the other hand it contains none of the ingredients or chemical mentioned above and instead provides higher quality protein sources, which come from actual, high quality meat. There are natural preservatives only and no by products or food colouring.

Does my little guy or girl need Holistic Dog Food?

Look for these signs that will tell you if your dog needs a change in diet and will benefit from holistic dog food:

  • they don’t want to eat their food
  • they have large, smelly stools
  • they fart and burp
  • their teeth aren’t clean
  • you find excessive amounts of hair or shedding
  • Their coat is dull and less shiny
  • Their coat is smelly and not due to swimming in a pond
  • They frequently have ear or skin infections

If you see a combination of these symptoms then you should take a look at their diet and consider changing their food to organic or holistic dog food

Life's Abundance Premium Health Food for Dogs - 40lb Bag Review

I've been feeding my German Short haired Pointer this food for roughly two weeks. I was at wit's end with her Pedigree Vitality food. I found when going out in the backyard the messiest crap. After reading up I decided to make my life easier and change her diet to a holistic one. That’s when I found Life's Abundance online at amazon and decided to give it a try. I made the change slowly by mixing the vitality and abundance together first. I noticed an immediately change in the consistency and they became solid. Making clean up a breeze, well as much of as breeze you can make cleaning up. I ordered directly off amazon and even tried some holistic dog treats. I'm so glad I found this dog food and will be sticking to it from now on and suggest it to any owner who is considering holistic dog food for their pet.

Dog Food Allergies

How to Identify Dog Food Allergies

One thing I read about and wanted to share is dog food allergies. After you have changed your dog’s diet keep an eye out for symptoms that may indicate that the change in food is harmful and causing allergies

The symptoms of dog food allergies look like most allergies seen in dogs which can make it hard to distinguish. The common symptom is an itchy coat mainly around the face, feet, ears, and legs. See why it would be hard to pick out. Keep an eye out for recurring ear infections, heavy shedding, more then normal scratching, and skin infections. If you notice that they are going out more then normal that may be a sign as well. One study showed that non-allergic dogs have around one and half bowel movements a day where as dogs with food allergies increase that to three times a day.

As I mentioned it’s hard to distinguish if your dog is suffering from food allergies from suffering from other allergies based on physical signs. However, there are a couple signs that increase the notion that food allergies may be the cause. One indication is if your dog suffers from allergies year-round or if the symptoms begin in the winter. Another is a dog that has very itchy skin but does not respond to steroid treatment.
