Organic Food: Is it important for your dog? #OrganicPet

6. October 2014 23:00 by jennifer | 9 Comments

This post is sponsored by Castor and Pollux Natural Petworks and the Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Organix Pet Food, but you know that I only share information that I feel is relevant to our readers. Castor and Pollux Natural Petworks is not responsible for the content of this post.

 

You know that eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits is very important to me and my family. And of course, that includes our furry family member, the #bigyellowdog, Matthew.

When we were contacted by Castor and Pollux about helping to spread the word about organic pet food, we immediately said YES!!

To be honest, I didn't even realize that organic pet food was an option for Matthew. I had never seen it offered at my local pet store.

Last year you might remember that Haley did her science fair experiment where she tested if Matthew would prefer homemade ORGANIC dog food, to his regular store bought food.

When we made his organic food, we just used our food and ground it up for him! In addition to SOME of the fruits and veggies you see here (not all are suitable for dog consumption) we also added some organic turkey breast.

Without a doubt Matthew preferred the organic to the store bought. But there was no way I had the time (or the money) to keep feeding him like this.

Every now and again he'll get a piece of organic romaine lettuce for a treat, and he LOVES it!!

But now I don't have to worry about making his organic food!!

Castor & Pollux pet foods, assures these foods are made with organic ingredients, contain no chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial preservatives, growth hormones or antibiotics.

ORGANIX is the most complete line of certified organic natural food for pets made under the USDA’s National Organic Program. The food features certified organic, free-range chicken or turkey as the No.1 ingredient for excellent taste and digestibility; organic fruits, vegetables and grains for vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; plus, soluble fiber to help maintain a healthy intestinal tract.

We'll be bringing you more information about organic and Castor & Pollux over the course of the next few weeks. And in the meantime, PLEASE take the #OrganicPet survey!

This is really good to know! To be honest I haven't done a lot of research about organic food for my cat. I really should!

Until recently we had never thought of organic for our dogs either.  I guess the concerns are the same - what exactly is going into the food?  Thanks for the reminders!

Ellen Christian

That is a great point. Healthy eating is just as important for our pets as it is for us.

I think it is super that a company would love and care for our pets as much as we do. It only makes sense to give the special pet member of the family organic foods too!  I want to get my nephew dog some Organix for Christmas.

My puppy tried some of their dog treats. He enjoyed them tremendously.

I do think it's important to feed our pets a healthy diet! I need to work on this with my cat. She's a bit overweight!

Stefani Tolson

I would love to try using organic dog food with my dogs. They have tried organic dog treats and LOVE them.

When I had to begin to eat meat again, all that mattered to me was that it be hormone and antibiotic free and grass fed. I knew this mattered because that was the only kind of meat I would ever feed my dogs and cats too! Our pets often teach us valuable nutritional lessons.
