According to Polluted Pets, a study by the Environmental Working Group
, dogs are exposed to 40 percent higher levels of chemicals than humans are. As it turns out, your dog may be ingesting a host of chemical additives and preservatives, rendered animal by-products, growth hormones, antibiotic-fed protein, dyes, and allergens on a daily basis - all within the dog food you're choosing for them. By switching to organic, human-grade, and/or USDA certified organic pet food, you'll be doing your part to help not just pets, but our planet, too. Supporting organic farming keeps pesticides out of the soil and waterways. Plus, your four-legged companion will enjoy better digestion, improved skin, higher energy, reduced allergies, and more!
We like to use Dog Food Advisor
as a great unbiased jumping off point to do our research when it comes to what we're feeding our furry family members. The Dog Food Advisor is a public service website designed to help you make a more informed decision when buying dog food and features information on all dog food brands such as who actually makes each dog food, the brand's recall history and the company's safety practices.
