Dog Food Advice
If you have decided to buy organic dog food, there are some things you need to keep in mind. They may sound obvious but some people do not even think about these simple tips before buying a brand of dog food. You have to check the label and find out what are the ingredients in it.
There are many things that you can check out on the label of the dog food you purchase. Let us discuss them briefly.
The first ingredient you should look for in an organic dog’s dinner is the organically grown feed. This is the feed that has been fed to the animals using organic methods. These can be farm-raised or grass-fed beef, chicken, turkey, or lamb.
The next ingredient of the organic dog’s food is the organic grain. This is mainly the corn or soy that has been grown without the use of chemicals. You will also find the organic cow or goat if you want a healthier diet for your pet.
Organic feeds and ingredients are expensive but in most cases you can have a cost effective diet for your dog. You can either buy food or supplement from a pet store and mix it with your own food to make it similar to a commercial product. If you are interested in supplements, there are also commercially available ones available as well.
Organic dogs food may contain the same ingredients as conventional ones, but they have been grown under different environmental conditions. They contain less levels of additives that are harmful to the animals. The result is better tasting, more nutritious, and better for the environment.
Inorganic or synthetic substances or additives are used in commercial products because of their properties that give them the capacity to support the growth of natural bacteria. However, there are no bacteria that could survive in an environment that contains no oxygen.
It takes about 40 minutes for a gram of protein to absorb the necessary amounts of essential nutrients and minerals to stay healthy. However, there are preservatives that provide energy for the dogs and can cause serious illness in their bodies.
Some herbicides and pesticides that are used in the food industry, which are organic, are toxic to the dogs. They can cause cancer and other health problems.
Another thing to consider is the cost of making the food. If the cost of the feed is higher than the cost of the food, the cheaper the feed is, the cheaper the product is for the consumer.
It is very important that you take note of what organic means before you buy. You may be surprised to know that there are now many brands of organic dog food available. There are new companies that are coming up that are producing best quality organic dog food.
