Why not try switching sugary snacks for organic dog biscuits and treats? Our little furry friends deserve to lead a healthy and happy life. What are you currently using for your dog's treats? Do you turn to cost-effective or branded snacks? Either way, the problem remains the same. Your dog will not be safe from additives, preservatives, gluten, and other ingredients that can worsen your dog's health.
So, it’s no wonder why many dog owners are turning to homemade organic treats. These types of daily refreshments are free from fillers and other dangerous substances. What is more important, these goodies are packed with nutrients that support the digestive system and foster healthy growth.
Although it’s best to prepare snacks yourself, busy dog owners might not always have the time to make organic dog biscuits and treats. In this case, turn to the small print on the label to determine if the treat you intend to purchase is organic.
The truth is that many commercial dog treats contain GMO (genetically modified organisms) just like people food. Plus, although you may find the term “organic” on the package, that doesn’t necessarily mean the treats contain organic ingredients solely. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of products you can rely on for quality nutritional value.
For example, you will recognize the food that’s entirely made of organic ingredients and is safe for consumption only if you see the “100% organic” label on the product. If you only see the word “organic” on the label, then the product contains up to 95% of organic content.
On the other hand, food “made with organic ingredients” suggests that the product has to contain at least 70% organic materials. As you can see, anything less than 100% is not acceptable. Why? Because organic food must comply with the organic norm which is to process food without any additives, hormones, pesticides, fillers, artificial colors, etc. As well as food that is not in any way contaminated by human or industrial waste, for more information on commercial, organic and natural dog treats, visit the organic dog treats page.
The benefits of organic dog biscuits and treats are genuinely worth it. Your four-legged friend will appreciate having a taste of delicious, yet energy-boosting treats, while you can relax knowing your pooch is in good hands. Keep scrolling down the page to see my homemade dog biscuits and treats!
But beyond having peace of mind once you acquire “natural” or “organic” snacks, you will be happy to know which toxins from the food you have left behind and what you’ve gained by doing so:
However, if your pup eats organic, you will quickly notice a change in his appearance and overall behavior. Your furry friend will feel and look healthier. These changes include a stronger and richer coat, better skin, nails, etc. Hence, by eliminating these harmful elements and replacing them with organic ingredients, you can ensure that your doggie maintains a consistent weight with more nutritious and less fattening snacks.
