Question by GunnyCee: How does Organic pet food help my pet live longer? Is there a difference between Organic and all natural food?
I have been thinking about feeding my dog Organic pet foods, then I see something called “all natural foods.” What is the difference if any?

Organic means grown without herbicides or pesticides. All natural means everything in it is natural… eg. a plant, animal or grain.

Pesticides are made to kill things… anyone who thinks they can kill the bugs and weeds but are perfectly safe to consume should really think about it. I know they are consumed in minute quantities, but over time I tend to wonder why we have so much more cancer and immunodeficiency ailments these days such as asthma and severe allergies.

Whichever you go with be sure it is a good quality animal diet… as far as cost goes you are better off buying a grain free (or at lease wheat and corn free) diet over an organic diet with wheat or corn in the top 5 ingredients. If you can afford an organic grain free diet…then your pup is one lucky dog!

Wheat and corn are much harder on your animal than the small amount of pesticides are…

And this is coming from someone who buys organic LOTS and truely understands the difference.

  1. The term ‘natural’ is not regulated for pet foods. Organic claims are not regulated or enforced either, EXCEPT for certified organic claims (i.e., those with the USDA organid seal). Only certified organic pet food claims have been verified by an unbiased thrid-party (a USDA-accredited organic certification agency). You can see what a Ca State Compliance officer said about ‘organic’ pet foods at http://www.onestaorganics.com/news.php
