Looking to make a few tweaks to your pup’s diet to ensure an extra-healthy new year? We recommend checking out organic dog treats and chews. It’s a simple change, but one that can have positive and lasting effects on your four-legged buddy.
To clarify, organic dog treats are made with certified organic ingredients, meaning they’re grown or produced without modern synthetics like pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
In the U.S., the organic market is regulated by AAFCO, and companies must comply with these regulations to use the label. While it’s not required, many organic treats also follow other high-quality standards and avoid unnecessary grains and sugars and questionable byproducts.
An important note: an organic label does not mean that a product is formulated to meet specific diet requirements. Always be sure to check the label for your pet’s dietary needs or allergens.
