As such, you do your best to eat well, to fuel your body right by filling it with healthy ingredients and foods. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that animals, too, function best when they're fed similarly. Cute as they may be, our four-legged friends can’t eat whatever they want. Animals need just as many vitamins and minerals as their human parents.
Like us, our pets need a certain balance of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fats, and water. This is why it’s so important to find a pet food company that understands the specificity of an animal’s diet. Dogs and cats both need to fill certain nutritional requirements at various stages of their lives, so many foods are designed for creatures of different ages and sizes. (Think puppies or senior, big, and little dogs!)
Many pet food companies fill their foods with harsh ingredients and preservatives that don’t mesh with your pooch’s digestive system. Corn, soy, and wheat are found in some dog food brands, and not necessarily something you want to feed your pets. But fear not—we’ve got the inside information to help you make informed choices. Below you’ll find our top three reasons as to why you should feed your furry friend top-quality meals.
One of the main ingredients in a healthy dog food is protein. All animals, humans included, need protein to help maintain healthy organs, muscles, skin, and other tissues. In ORGANIX® pet food, the number one ingredient is organic, free-range chicken or turkey, real lamb or salmon. Not only does this allow your pups and kitties to live their best lives, but it also ensures that they get the proper protein they need for each stage of life.
In addition, the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids found in ORGANIX® dog food help dogs and cats maintain healthy skin and heart health. Maintaining healthy skin not only means a shiny coat, but also helps prevent anti-inflammatory effects, such as itching, shedding, and scratching. Great food can make all the difference!
Why do we look for foods high in vitamin C, antioxidants, or anti-inflammatory agents? Fido doesn't need to be a body builder, by any means, but he should be getting a substantial diet that helps to bolster his strength and immune system. A good dog food provides a daily dose of vitamins and minerals to help decrease cell damage and encourage the daily function of healthy cells. This means superb health all around. Getting appropriate amounts of vitamins and minerals will help ensure that your pet will have a healthy heart, sharp eyes, good ears, sleek coat, and be more likely to fight off infection.
Many of us know that our gut plays an imperative role in holistic health, and the same is true for your pets. Without healthy digestion, your animal’s overall health is likely to decline. Thus it’s important to find foods with appropriate amounts of protein and carbohydrates. Additionally, quality sources of fiber help move food through an animal’s digestive tract allowing proper absorption of nutrients.
