Pets are such an important part of our lives. For example, research has shown that living with dogs provides certain health benefits. Dogs can help lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, and even boost our immunity. What we want most for these loved ones is the best in quality of life and longevity. Unfortunately, a high rate of deaths in dogs is attributed to cancer. Healthy nutrition and their natural ingredients can significantly contribute to prevention of disease, improved quality of life, and increased longevity. Organic pet foods and treats offer a host of benefits that contribute to improved quality and length of life in dogs. Just a few of them are:
- A stronger immune system — dogs are more likely to absorb important nutrients rather than eliminate more of the nutrients they require to maintain a healthy immune system.
- Improved digestive health — Natural beef, turkey, salmon, lamb, chicken, and other healthy protein sources can have a tremendous positive impact on digestive health. Instead of ingesting fillers and chemical additives, organic protein sources provide dogs with what they need for healthy metabolic functioning.
- Improved skin health — Organic dog foods do not contain artificial colors, pesticides, and other chemicals that can cause allergies as well as other skin problems and diseases. The quality protein and grain sources in organic foods support your dog’s immune system to help build resistance to skin infections.
