We all know that a variety of proteins is key for our canine companions. We also know that organic food is head and shoulders above the rest. However, many of us know that the cost of organic farming (rightly so) is more than your ‘everyday’ foods. This can mean it is not economical to feed every day.
It doesn’t have to be one or the other though! Feeding some organic is better than none at all. Why not try out having an ‘organic day of the week’ – you can join in with your meals too! Try, once a week, having organic meals.
Why Organic is better;
- Better mineral makeup of the protein
- The ‘cleanest’ proteins you can get
- Naturally higher in omega-3 fatty acids
- Positive impact on the environment
The benefits of this are;
- A more nutrient dense protein source for your dog’s body to utilise
- Reduce inflammation
- Alleviates effects ofallergies
- Better for skin and coat
- Aids proper development of the retina and visual cortex
- Aid in preventing heart problems
- Slow the development of some cancers
- More sustainable farming
- Healthier soil for even more nutrients
- Happier and healthier animals
Nutriment, a leading BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) manufacturer, not only caters for the mass market of pet owners, but have also developed the Laverstoke Park Farm Organic range. Each variety is made with 100% raw British meat, offal and bone that is Certified Organic, packed with beneficial proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, Omega 3 and 6 and life-enhancing vitamins and minerals. Like all products manufactured by Nutriment, the combination of ingredients provides the very best nutrition for our dogs.
Stef Roulet, in-house nutritionist at Nutriment, says, "Remember – balance of diet comes over time so this will benefit your dog beyond a single day. A natural injection of 50% more omega-3 fatty acids to the diet once a week will boost the benefits to skin and coat, alleviate effects of an overreactive immune system and maintain healthy blood pressure."
Give it a go, take the organic challenge! Just replace one day a week with organic food for your dog.
