Pet owners have become much more aware of the benefits of natural pet foods and the link between their pet’s diet and the health of their pet. A poor diet can led to unhealthy pets, with some animals suffering from allergies, skin conditions and diabetes. As responsible pet owners it is important to know what exactly goes into pet foods. With much more knowledge and concerns about pet foods, many pet owners are now switching to Natural Pet Foods.
So what is natural pet food?
In general terms the AAFCO (American Association of Feed Control Officials) require pet food to consist of only natural ingredients without chemical alternations except for added vitamins and minerals. The official definition of the AAFOC is:
“A feed or ingredient derived solely from plant, animal or mineral sources, either in its unprocessed state or having been subjected to physical processing, heat processing, rendering, purification extraction, hydrolysis, enzymolysis or fermentation, but not having been produced by or subject to a chemically synthetic process and not containing any additives or processing aids that are chemically synthetic except in amounts as might occur unavoidably in good manufacturing practices".
In choosing natural pet food, consumers can be reassured that the food does not contain chemical additives. In addition, natural pet foods tend to use higher quality ingredients. Certainly in the case of Naturo natural pet foods all ingredients are of the highest quality, with every single ingredient listed on the packaging.
A healthier choice for your pets
Natural pet foods are considered to be a more healthy choice of food. Naturo natural pet foods are made with 100% natural high quality ingredients and contain no rendered by-products such as intestines, heads, feet or feathers, no bulking agents or harmful chemicals. Naturo foods contain a rich variety of amino acids from meat and plant sources, which are the building blocks of proteins, necessary for skin, coat, muscle, bone, blood and immune system. Furthermore they have essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, the building blocks of eicosanoids, needed for bones, teeth, hair, coat, muscle and immune system as well as the digestive, reproductive and cardiovascular functions.
As pet owners we want the best for our pets. Feeding a high quality natural pet food has been known to help reduce skin aliments and allergies as well as aid in the reduction of digestive disorders. In addition, pets have more energy, stronger immunity and a better quality and longer life.
