Most of us know the benefits of an natural/organic diet for our families but what about our pets? Pets are a member of our families as well so why not feed them the best food we can? Many pet foods are full of terrible ingredients, many don’t even have meat in the first three ingredients. They also are often full of cheap corn and other fillers. The natural and organic pet food market has grown a lot in the last couple of years. It’s now easier than ever to feed your pet a healthy diet.
These natural and organic foods are available at stores like PetSmart. PetSmart has greatly expanded their selection of natural and organic pet foods. They now even have an exclusive pet food line called Simply Nourish. It’s not organic but it’s reasonable priced and the ingredients are natural and much better than other dog food brands. The first three ingredients in the Chicken and Brown Rice adult dog food are; chicken, chicken meal and brown rice. It doesn’t contain the cheap fillers like other foods and has lots of dried fruits and veggies.
Another brand of natural food PetSmart carries is Organix. This is the food my dog eats. It’s made from certified organic chicken and most other ingredients are also organic. It contains no wheat, corn or meat by-products. It’s made in the USA, which is important for many after the pet food recalls several years ago. It’s a bit more than the Simply Nourish food but it’s not bad and PetSmart often has sales on it and you can save with their reward card program.
My dog has done great on her natural diet. She is a healthy weight, her fur is soft and shinny, and overall she is the picture of health. She is a rescue dog that was near death when she found us, so this is an amazing turn around for her. The vet always comments on how beautiful and healthy she is. Natural food has been worth every penny for us. My dog is an important member of my family and I want to be sure she is healthy and stays around as long as possible.
In the coming weeks I will be sharing tips on transitioning your pet to a natural diet, natural treats and will even have a giveaway for free pet food! I would love to hear if any of you have made the switch to natural pet food and if so how your results have been.
