Keepin’ it Real… With All Natural Pet Foods.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that an all-natural diet is a healthy diet. It’s also no coincidence that what’s good for you is 100% good for your pet, be that a cat, dog, or wild bird. At Natural Pet Marketplace, we’re here to help you learn (way beyond the buzzwords) what Natural pet foods are all about.
What are these highly misleading buzzwords you ask… eco-friendly, holistic catch-phrases: all-natural, free-range, green, organic, gluten free, and green, just to name a few. That being said, most of us don’t look beyond the words on the label to understand exactly what they are paying for when opting for these newer, healthier alternatives. Natural pet foods – said simply – are those that contain no artificial additives or preservatives. When you and I are shopping at the grocery store, this is what we are finding in our natural foods aisle. Are the rules the same when it comes to our pets? In a word, yes. Our dogs and cats are just as vulnerable to the negative affects of artificial food supplements & preservatives as you and I are. These un-natural substances can, and often will, lead to a number of negative health issues that will effect your pet’s quality of life.
Perhaps the optimist among us would like to believe many pet food manufacturers begin their quest into the pet food manufacturing market with good intentions. Some even, we might believe, would even go so far as to stand behind their products. Unfortunately, the nearer truth may lie in the fact that the ingredients in mainstream dog foods seem to indicate that quality takes a second place to the name of the almighty profit. A quick look at the ghastly make-up of commercial dog and cat foods will reveals a make-it-cheap mentality that is proven to lead to negative effects on your pet’s health. Many manufacturers use “4D” meat in their pet foods, a category that includes meat that comes from diseased, down, dying and dead animals. These ingredients are then combined with grain fillers to create the cheapest products possible. When was the last time you ordered a diseased steak or chicken? Mmmm….delicious right?
“4D” meat may seem utterly unpalatable to you and I, but (perhaps luckily?) your dog or cat has a digestive system that is better conditioned to digesting less than optimum meats. But, like like us here at Natural Pet Marketplace, you probably want more nutritious ingredients going into your dog’s meal. As far as grain fillers go, your dog and cat have no need for these things in their diet and are not benefiting from them in any way. Add a nasty mix of sugar, salt, cancer-causing chemicals and preservatives; cook any remaining nutrients out, and you’ve got yourself a standard can of dog or cat food. Is there a better way?
Here at Natural Pet Marketplace, we offer only the top quality alternatives for your pet that are healthy, organic, and never made from a dying or diseased animal. The natural pet food products you’ll in our site are that specifically engineered to match your pet’s unique nutritional needs, without negative or superfluous ingredients. For instance, your cat is a carnivore. Your cat needs meat and meat only. There is no need for you to pad your cat’s diet with grain and vegetable fillers. For dogs, an omnivorous diet is more appropriate, but most commercial foods are high on filler and low on important meat proteins and fats. Some pet owners are choosing to feed their pets an all natural, species specific diet, by cooking for their pets: creating homemade meals just like the ones they are cooking for themselves and their family members. For some owners, this might be a great alternative, but many find that this path is time consuming and difficult. Luckily, there are now a variety of all-natural pet foods we offer here who are dedicated to providing pets with species specific, all natural diets.
Natural Pet Marketplace sells a variety of great pet foods that make species specific and organic considerations a high priority. Our pet food gives your dog a great combination of meaty protein and lots of Omega 3 fatty oils. The products offered here incorporate plant nutrients in combination with the digestive enzymes that allow your pet to metabolize them quickly and without negative effects on their health.
Always ask your vet when you are considering changes to your pet’s diet. Chances are you’ll find that fresh, natural, healthy food is as important to your pet as it is to you.
