The food market saturates itself with pesticide-laden products. PETA identifies most flea solutions as dangerous due to chemicals like Methoprene and pyriproxyfen. Despite this, many still debate the benefits of natural pet products vs. commercial products.
Whether you’re dealing with pet food industries or the drug administrations that create and approve pet medications, you need to know that natural pet products are better for your pet dogs and cats.
It’s relatively easy to track the ingredients used in pet foods. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) provides a process for defining what exactly goes into pet foods in accordance with state and federal law.
The first major advantage that natural pet foods have over other products is the absence of artificial substances such as food dyes, artificial flavorings, preservatives, and in some cases growth hormones.
Natural organic dog food and cat food is rich with vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants. It contains no artificial additives which make it much easier for your pet to digest and pass. It won’t be filled with processed filler carbohydrates that can cause pets to vomit, gain weight, or develop health complications.
Earlier we revealed that many flea and tick control products often contain chemicals that are harmful for your pet’s skin and coat. Consider also that animals frequently bite and self-groom, which transfers any chemicals applied to the fur directly into their mouths. Further investigation of the PETA report reveals that pets experienced anything from skin irritation to death as a result of these chemicals.
Other forms of flea control include chewable tablets or sprays that are toxic to humans yet absorbed by your pet’s skin. The FDA even issued a warning regarding the possibility for neurological conditions in your pets when using these products. Natural products, like our organic flea and tick repellent keep these bugs away while keeping your pet happy and healthy.
Similar to fur care products, certain dental care products for pets can contain alcohol and preservatives that are not ideal. Dental problems are very common in pets, especially in homes where pet owners frequently feed them table food. Pets who develop serious dental problems often need to be put under anesthesia, which is a serious risk in itself.
Our natural tooth powder features only organic ingredients that polishes, detoxifies, and refreshes teeth in a natural way. Keeping your pet’s teeth clean with natural substances avoids exposure to harmful elements, but also does the job of keeping periodontal disease at bay. Severe gum disease can lead to infections and disease that can ruin your furry friend’s quality of life.
It’s just as true for pets as it is for people: organic is healthier. However, our pets don’t get to make the healthy choice - we as pet owners have to do it for them. Our pets live to enrich the lives of us and our families, and we should do our part in ensuring that they live happy, healthy lives.
