Should Our Pets “Go Organic”?

As a nation, we’ve come to our senses about the harmful effects of processed food. Knowledge of the benefits of real food has grown exponentially. But just because we are eating more raw and organic food, does that mean our pets should be eating it just as much? How can we be sure our pets get all their nutrition without all the added benefits in one product?

The answer is simple and it relates directly to the answer we give ourselves: we lived just fine (or better) before processed foods, and we can live without them now. The biggest risk in processed food for our pets is that we can’t be sure what has been added to them such as chemicals, preservatives, fertilizers, hormones and pesticides. We have no idea how the food we feed our pets could be harming them. The only way to control that is to feed them organic food. Diet and lowered health risks are some of the reasons we’ve switched to organic, the same should go for your four-legged loved ones. After all, shouldn’t we all care about our pets’ health the same way we care for our own?

If you’re still on the fence about the decision, consider the following facts about processed pet food. If you’re like the way I was, you buy canned, pre-cooked, wet dog food because you think it tastes the best and want to spoil your pet. However, as we know, cooking food typically eliminates the nutrients in food, so the vegetables included in that canned pet food is significantly less nutritious to start.
Think of it this way, when we “juice”, “cleanse”, or go through a “vegan challenge”, what happens? We see dramatic results in our health, weight, and overall well-being. All of this happens because we only put organic, whole foods into our bodies. Doing so cleans out our systems and heals many health problems, as well as enables us to think more clearly and have more energy. A lot of the pet food in commercial retailers claims to do the same thing

A lot of the pet food in commercial retailers claims to do the same thing, and because we do want the best for our pets, and we have good intentions, we buy them.

Here’s a new challenge that will improve your pet’s health and quality of life: incorporate organic foods into their meals. Use raw vegetables (for the most nutrients), and organic meats. You don’t have to make the switch abruptly, or make the switch completely, just add whole and organic food to their regular diet and it will make a difference. Try it! You have nothing to lose, and your pet has everything to gain!
