1. Introduction:

Organic ingredients refer to those that are grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).  In recent years, there has been increased interest in providing dogs with organic diets and products.  This is due to the potential health benefits, as well as concerns about the potential adverse effects of conventional practices.

2. Organic Nutrition:

Organic nutrition for dogs involves providing them diets composed of 100% organic ingredients. These ingredients can include organic meats, fruits, vegetables, and grains, which are grown using sustainable farming practices.  Organic ingredients are able to provide dogs with complete and balanced vitamins and minerals, to support their overall health and well-being.

3. Health Benefits:

Numerous studies have suggested potential health advantages associated with feeding dogs 100% organic diets.  These benefits include reduced exposure to synthetic chemicals, higher nutrient content, improved digestion, enhanced immune function, and decreased risk of certain health conditions such as allergies, skin issues, and digestive disorders.  Organic diets may also contribute to a healthier coat, increased energy levels, and prolonged life expectancy.  Now, we cannot promise you that your dog will live longer if they are given organic ingredients.  Because there are many additional factors involved, which contribute to your dog’s life expectancy.  However, with the addition of organic ingredients, dogs will benefit exponentially from minerals and nutrients in its purest form.  Lastly, when your dog is provided organic products, it will result in a healthier looking dog, with a luscious, soft, and well-balanced coat.

4. Implications for Dogs on Non-Organic Ingredients:

Dogs that do not receive 100% organic ingredients may be exposed to synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs present in conventional ingredients.  This exposure can potentially lead to adverse health effects, including increased risk of allergies, compromised immune function, digestive disturbances, and possible long-term health implications.  Additionally, non-organic ingredients may lack the vitamin and mineral content quality associated with organic ingredients. 

5. Sources and Availability:

Organic dog ingredients can be found in various forms including topicals like serums, shampoos, and conditioners, oral like dry kibble or wet foods, freeze-dried, and raw diets.   Organic selections are increasing in availability in pet stores; however, many still host non-organic ingredients.  PawsnBoots certifies all of our ingredients are locally sourced and 100% organic.

6. Considerations and Certification:

When choosing organic dog items, it is essential to look for brands that adhere to strict organic standards and have undergone certification by recognized organizations.  Certification labels such as USDA Organic, PETA certified, or other organic certification bodies provide assurance that the product meets specific organic criteria.  Obviously, anything organic comes with a higher cost, however, at PawsnBoots we do our best to keep pricing as close to our leading non-organic competitors as possible.
