Organic Dog Food
Healthy Homemade Dog Food
Organic dog food, raw dog food and healthy homemade dog food are healthy food options for your dog. Each of these foods have specific benefits for your canine; buy, or make, a high quality dog food for your pet.
Organic dog food is the best type of food product for your pet ... I know this to be true because I have a three year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, named Harley, who has a number of allergies and stomach troubles.
Once we switched to all-organic products - 9 months ago - she started to get better.
Harley still has sensitive skin (I think we need an organic house to fix the remaining issues) but it is much improved and her stomach problems have finally disappeared.
(This is a picture of Harley at 7 weeks: pretty cute!)
In early 2007, the US pet food industry caused many dog owners (and other pet owners) to seriously reconsider the type of dog food they choose for their family pets.
Both premium and bargain dog food brands were recalled by the thousands due to life threatening complications caused by the food that sold for three entire months before the recall.
There are no confirmed numbers regarding the pets affected by the foods, but one large veterinary chain suggests that hundreds of dogs and cats experienced kidney failure in each of the 12 weeks it was available for purchase.
More than 60 million packages of pet foods were pulled from store shelves after contaminated wheat gluten caused severe reactions in many thousands of animals.
An unverified source reported nearly 3,000 animal deaths from the contaminated food.
These startling statistics have created a needed concern for the health and safety of animals who, because of domestication, rely on us to take care of them.
The dangers of commercial dog foods like these include kidney damage; and possible kidney failure that can result in death.
Even dog foods that are not contaminated in this way can increase the chances of health problems in your dog because of the elevated levels of chemicals, additives, and other unnatural synthetic and often toxic products. However by using wellness pet food, which is made with healthy, organic ingredients that are grown or processed without using pesticides, fertilizers, harmful chemicals. artificial preservatives, flavors, colors, sugar and salt, you can provide your pet with a nutritious diet.
Organic Dog Foods: Protecting Your Dog
No one wants to risk losing their family pet, especially because of the food we have given them, so more and more dog owners are choosing from a variety of organic dog foods for their beloved dogs. Just like organic food for humans, organic dog food is chemical free, all natural, and contains much higher levels of vital nutrients that will keep your dog healthy and strong.
A few of the benefits of switching to organic dog food are:

Dog Food Allergies:
Dog allergies are often related to pet food; discuss allergy symptoms with your veterinarian and try to elminate the problem (for example: change the type of food you use; check to see if a chemical-free organic dog food cures the problem). In the meantime, use a natural, homeopathic herbal remedy that relieves dry skin, flakiness and itchiness of your dog's skin.
We recommend a product called, Allergy Itch Ease, which temporarily relieves skin allergies and itch. It is an FDA-registered natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients known for their ability to soothe and relieve skin itch and allergies, as well as support the health and integrity of all cells and layers of the skin in dogs.
All products are free of gluten, artificial flavors, colorants and preservatives.

Many of the chemicals added to commercial dog food are responsible for dog food allergies and skin irritations.
The pesticides and fertilizers used to produce dog food ingredients, along with the unnatural additives and preservatives included in processing, leave harmful toxin traces within the food.
Organic pet food results in healthier, shinier fur and fewer skin problems.
