Healthy dog food

The desire for healthy food seems to apply equally to people and their pets, because many animal owners prefer to buy organic foods to feed their four-legged friends. One could be forgiven for being surprised at the large variety of organic dog food available on the market. Just like for humans, there are a lot of pet illnesses that one could cure or even prevent in the first place by the use of organic pet food.

For example, organic dog food could reduce the chance of the dog developing skin diseases and allergies. The reason for the positive health impact is the absence of additives, chemicals, colourants and pesticides. Instead the ingredients in organic dog food are just grain extracts and high quality proteins. Organic dog food contains more nutrients, which is reflected in the higher levels of energy and the weight of the pet.

Healthy, organic dog food contains more nourishment, which is reflected in the greater levels of energy and the normal weight of the dog. Furthermore, ordinary dog food can cause diabetes and excess weight with all the other problems that accompany these illnesses: back ailment, organ failure and decreased mobility. How can organic dog food help here, then? Well, simply because organic pet food does not contain bulk filler; they are nutrient-packed products that create energy not fat. Moreover, it is best and definitely a lot easier to prevent health issues than try to treat them afterwards.

A better digestion and a stronger immunity system are the other main benefits that accompany the feeding of organic dog food. Because of the absence of chemicals normally present in regular pet food, your dog will no longer vomit or experience wind or diarrhea. A healthier metabolism is what you will achieve with a healthy diet. Moreover, the quality of the nutritional substances in organic dog food, boosts the immunity functions, thereby reducing the risks of infection and all sorts of specific diseases that affect dogs on an everyday basis.

A significant number of veterinarians point out that organic dog food substantially increases the life of any animal, not to mention the fact that it will pass through old age a lot better. It is not uncommon that pet owners who choose organic dog food, are also interested in eating organic foods themselves, sticking with healthy organic products that boost bodily functions and reduce toxins and disease.

Ask your local dog food supplier about organic dog food and if there is none available at your local shop, try to order it online. There are plenty of web sites that sell such foods at fairly good prices.

One last piece, be very, very careful with dried dog food like biscuits, no matter what it says on the packet. I used to have a dog called Becky that stayed at home alone during the day, while I went to work. I didn't like to leave tinned food, because of flies, bacteria and vermin, so I bought dry food, which would not go off during the day. However, within six years she had contracted diabetes, which meant that I had to inject her with insulin every morning. The veterinary said that it was very common for dogs fed only on dry biscuits to contract diabetes, so check with your vet first of all or feed organic wet food.
