Natural and Organic Pet Foods
Pet parents are beginning to become a lot more careful with what’s going into their pet’s food bowls. Natural and organic pet foods are increasingly turning into popular choices. According to PetFoodIndustry.com, pet lovers spent approximately billion last year on natural pet food and million on organic pet food.
Natural pet foods contain no chemicals at all. U.S. Association of American Feed Control Officials refers to “natural” as food or ingredients that come from only plant, animal or mined sources. This means that pet foods labeled “natural” should not contain any chemically synthetic processing aids and chemically synthetic additives such as artificial flavors, coloring or preservatives.
Natural pet foods can be made from whole ingredients like chicken, beef, vegetables and fruits.
Organic pet foods are foods that were raised without chemicals. They were grown or raised without the use of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or fertilizers.

If a pet owner is considering changing their pet’s diet to a natural or organic food, it is suggested to feed the pet a combination of the new and old food over a seven day period, this way the pet will better used to the new texture and smell.
On the first day, feed your pet 90% old food and 10% new food; continue on the second day with 80% old food, 20% new food and so on. At the end of the seven days, your pet should be fully comfortable with the new natural or organic food.
