Diet is so crucial to good health.

Not only for us but for our wonderful dogs.

Sometime over the next few days I will write a post about an amazing connection that Jean made, via Richard in England, with Colin Potter. He is the founder of the site Fight Parkinson’s.

It is mentioned as an introduction to today’s post because Colin stresses the critical importance of the right diet for us humans.

But now I want to go straight to a guest post sent to me by Kathreen Miller on the topic of diet for our dogs.

If you are searching for information related to organic food for dogs, then you’re probably a firm believer in animal rights and how food affects their health. . Maybe you are also considering how your dog will follow a vegan diet. Or how an organic diet can help improve your pet’s health?

You must understand that dogs require protein-rich foods. Therefore, you should look for balanced and high-quality food so that your pet’s health is not deteriorated. A low intake of protein in your pet could result in anemia which again causes joint pain in dogs.

Pet Bounce is one of the best dog pain medications to allefviate the joint pain in pet dogs.

You might think how can you make your dog eat organic food? Is it good for dogs? Before you start such kind of diet for your pet you need to do some research.

Consult a veterinary doctor and speak to him/her about the deficiency and advantage of an organic diet. You need to understand that the stomach of dogs is fragile. An instant change in the diet of a dog makes them suffer from diarrhea or bad breath. The change of diet in your dog should be slow.

If you are starting with organic food for your pet, then initially you need to give them organic food once a week. This will make your dog habitual and accustomed to organic food.

During this time period, you need to ensure that your dog gets a mix of normal as well as organic diet. Then after a considerable period of time, slowly increase the organic food proportion, and finally making it one hundred percent.

This is to make sure that your dog will eat their new food and does not suffer from any diseases.

It is correct, that organic food for dogs is created with natural methods and does not contain any type of additives, preservatives, and artificial colorants. Also, the organic food should be grown in a completely natural manner. But remember, that all organic food brands won’t be entirely free from the preservatives.

As long as you obey the advice of your veterinary doctor, organic food is very good for the health of your dog. If you satisfy the requirements of your dogs, and their health is good, then we can have the idea that organic diet is good for the dogs. There are many types of organic foods. But what makes them bad or good is the range to which they satisfy the animal requirements for the nutrients.

Also, ensure that dogs must get a regular and high intake of protein and they never eat the excess quantity of corn. Since for dogs, corns are not easy to digest.

    1. Why doesn’t it surprise me that he can’t relate to dogs – and presumably other animals? Ditto humans for that matter. And those two sons of his, with their big game hunting histories, are beyond disgusting.

      1. I am universally opposed to all forms of hunting for so-called sport! So is Jeannie. Even the mouse traps we use in the house are non-kill ones. It breaks my heart to think about killing magnificent wild animals!

  1. The largish dog down the road, though only 4 years old, suffered badly from joint pain or arthritis. He has improved so much since he was put on two Omega 3 tablets a day.

  2. We make our treats with organic ingredients. I like the idea there are no GMO’s in the pups snacks and try to make any toppers (i.e. pumpkin, etc.) is organic for the same reason. Coupled with exercise, we think it’s what’s keeping both dogs fit and healthy.

  3. Great share, Paul 🙂
    I will add that dogs are born carnivores and just because we can go vegan, vegetarian, etc it is not the same for our furry family.
    One thing is, that they like our food, but they do also need good quality of meat, which is great as organic grown too. Just my thoughts, Paul.
