Organic Dog Food is the Best

What is Organic?

Since the beginning of grocery store commercial dog food, there has been an explosion of pets dying from tumors, growths, cancers, and diseases that were unheard many years ago.

I really feel this has happened because of the unsafe chemicals, preservatives, fillers, ground up road kill, and lack of nutrients used to make this cereal based kibble pleasing to eatand long lived.

Switching to organic dog food, whether it is home made organic, with the same nutritious ingredients you eat for supper, or buying the premium high grade organic dog food that has become increasingly accepted, is the best you can do for your dog. An organic dog food marked 95% organic meets the same guidelines as organic food produced for humans. The food won't contain hormones or chemicals, and it's preserved with natural substances like Vitamins C and E. As with any food, the organic option will be more costly, but it's worth it for your companion, and the way it is manufactured is definitely better for the environment.

Foods with a lot of ground meal are less expensive but less wholesome. Just as with human organic food, natural organic ingredients will go a long way toward giving your pet a extended active life.

Some of the advantages of switching to organic dog food are: - More spry, healthier coat and fresher breath. - Helps prevent scratching and annoying skin conditions, because organic dog food is free of man made colors and flavor enhancers, chemical additives and toxic pesticides that could cause many of these skin allergies. In some cases completely eliminating these allergic skin reactions. - It is easier to maintain a healthier weight, because organic dog food is superior in nutritional value, and this prevents overeating in you dog as they are more satisfied eating smaller amounts. There are no bulk fillers in organic dog food. - Better overall health and a stronger immunity. Even if you dog seems healthy he/she can still benefit. Increasing the health of your dog's immune system will prevent future problems with illnesses or infections. - Quality of life and longevity are increased by feeding organic dog food as opposed to the cereal filled cheap dog food.

Organic dog will be produced with human grade meat, not ground bits and pieces of animals that are unfit for human consumption, or rancid road kill, as the cheaper store bought commercial food industry uses. Also you should find an organic dog food that boasts using no corn, wheat, soy, grain fractions, fillers or by-products.

Learn to decipher labels on commercial pet foods. They are purposefully deceiving us into buying low grade, unhealthy food all for profit, not for the health of our pet.

I am an animal lover and advocate of raising healthy, happy pets, as an important family member. I truly believe this starts with proper, adequate nutrition, which in turn extends your pets life. Feeding organic dog food is makes sense is you believe the above also.
