Organic Dog Recipes
Best Bully Sticks stocks many different organic foods, treats and chews for your dog. To get a better understanding of why organic dog products are better for your pet, it is important to look at what actually goes into these products.
It is pretty much common knowledge that organic foods contain no artificial colours, preservative or flavors. You should steer clear of these ingredients because you can never be sure of what they actually are or what they are made from. The effects these artificial chemicals have on your dog is unknown, they could be the cause of allergic reactions or just change the way your dog acts, it is very difficult to predict. These chemicals can also upset your dogs tummy or give them digestive problems.
It is important to look at why each ingredient that goes into organic dog products is classed as organic. Firstly, we will look at organic meat, particularly beef, chicken and lamb as these are the most common meats in dog food. For beef to be organic it is usually from grass fed, good quality cattle and has had no preservatives added to it. Organic chicken comes from free-run chickens who have not been given antibiotics or hormones. Lamb is organic when it is grass-fed, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, naturally-raised and free-range. Particularly in dog treats and chews the meat would have had no chemicals added to reduce or eliminate odours, nor would it have had colouring added to it. Another factor that makes it organic is that it would not have had cereals or grains added to it as a filler to bulk it out. An example of products that use yummy organic meat is Paw Naturaw Organic Diet for Dogs, which comes in a selection of forms including mini rolls, medallions and patties and also a selection of flavors. Primal Organic Jerky Chicken Chips for Dogs are another example of an organic treat for dogs that are 100% natural and taste great. They are particularly good to use when training your dog.
Many meats in organic dog products are frozen raw to eliminate the loss of nutrients whilst cooking. Meats contain fat and fiber but most importantly they are high in protein, which is one of the most important elements in your pet’s diet. It is important in all elements of growth and development as well as having a big part to play in making up the immune system. Meat by-products do not complain this high source of protein, which is why organic is best. In the wild dogs eat only meat, therefore pure meat is a diet that dogs can solely live off.
Some organic dog products contain a large amount of top-quality fish. For fish to be organic it must be wild caught, and therefore brought up on a natural diet. It also must contain no preservatives or other chemicals and is usually delivered fresh to the producer. Acana Provincial Pacifica Grain Free Dry Dog Food is an example of a fish based product. As the name suggests it also contains no grain to bulk out the product. Fish contains high levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6, which is excellent in maintaining a healthy shine to your dog’s coat and also keeping their skin at a good quality. Fish also contains a high level of protein.
The other ingredient that often features in organic dog products is organic fruit and vegetables. These are fruit and vegetables which have grown without the help of any chemicals and have no grains or wheat added to the products to bulk them out. Fruit and vegetables are very low in fat but also full of vitamins and minerals to nourish your dog. For example, pumpkin, which features in Fruitables Pumpkin and Apple Dog Treats, is a natural source of antioxidants, rich in Beta-Carotene, key vitamins and nutrients, fiber and it is low in calories. Antioxidants help your dog to fight diseases and remain healthy; there are also high levels of these in Barkwheats Blueberry and Lavender Dog Biscuits.
Whichever organic ingredient is present in your dog’s treats and food is guaranteed to make them healthier and more nourished than the poor quality ingredients present in regular dog food. So for a happier, healthier dog, choose organic.
