Why is organic food better for your dog?
Conventional produce is processed with synthetic chemicals, pesticides, fertilisers or are genetically modified. These chemicals runs off into drinking water, waterways and coastal areas which negatively affect water and air quality, soil health and plant life. Hundreds of chemical pesticides are routinely used in conventional farming and processing and the residues are present in your dog’s food! These chemicals can cause potentially serious health problems and many food additives have been linked with allergic reactions such as skin and digestive problems.
Organic produce is grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, or GMOs with a focus on environmentally sustainable practices. Organic farming and production systems are focused on soil and land health, and balanced eco-systems.
Organic food is not just chemical-free. Organic food contains higher levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes due to better nutrients in the soil and no genetic modification. The flavours are allowed to develop naturally meaning organic food tastes great!
Another important factor is Animal Welfare. Practices such as battery hen farming inflict continuous suffering on animals. Similarly, growth hormones, antibiotics and genetically engineered drug treatment in livestock is common in conventional practice. Organic livestock is grown in a way that conforms to natural processes of growth and development allowing animals to live in humane and healthy conditions. This means they live healthier and longer lives, free of stress.
Feed your dog organic and know that your dog’s food is fresh, great tasting, healthier for them, chemical free, and kind to animals and the environment. It is crucial to nourish our dogs with healthy and chemical free food for vitality and strong immunity. After all, shouldn’t your dog be eating as nature intended?
