Start your pet on the path to natural, healthy eating with Big Dog Pet Foods.
If you want to switch your pet's diet to a natural option, gradually introduce new food into their current meals over a few weeks. Monitor your pet's digestion and energy levels during the transition.
Natural pet food can cost more than conventional pet food because it frequently contains better-quality ingredients and stays away from fillers and by-products that are less expensive. The long-term health advantages can exceed the expense.
When reviewing the ingredients in natural pet food products, look out for those with whole food sources of protein, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables. It's best to avoid artificial preservatives, colours and flavours.
Pet allergies may be avoided by taking natural pet food, which often steers clear of common allergens like wheat and soy.
Natural pet foods are only sometimes organic, as the organic certification requires specific farming practices. However, some pet health food products may contain organic ingredients.
Natural pet food differs from conventional pet food in that it typically contains more whole foods and fewer processed ingredients. It also avoids artificial additives and may have higher-quality proteins.
Natural pet food can provide many benefits, such as:
● Improved digestion — Natural pet food products often contain whole food sources of fibre and prebiotics, which may support healthy digestion and reduce gastrointestinal issues.
● Better nutrient absorption — Pets given a natural diet may lead them to absorb and use bioavailable nutrients more effectively.
● Increased energy — Natural pet food products can support your pet's overall vitality and energy levels by giving them nutritional, whole-food proteins and good fat sources.
● Healthier skin and coat — Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E in natural pet food products may promote healthy skin and shiny coats.
● Stronger immune function — Antioxidants, vitamins and minerals may be present in natural pet food, which may benefit your pet's immune system and general health when taken regularly.
● Reduced risk of allergies — With natural pet food, typical allergens like wheat and soy are frequently avoided in favour of whole, less processed foods that are less likely to cause allergic responses.
● Longer lifespan — By feeding your dog natural, nutrient-rich foods, they can have a healthier life that may lead to them living longer.
Natural pet food is produced without artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and is prepared from nutritious, minimally processed ingredients.
