Best Natural Dog Food
For the most part, natural dog food should contain a lack of artificial flavors, artificial colours, or artificial preservatives. The trouble is, that any dog food could label itself as being natural without having to meet any strict requirements. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to find the best natural dog food that truly meets the definition of natural!
What is Natural Dog Food?
Natural dog food is food that contains purely natural ingredients like meat, vegetable, and fruit and no additional extras. A lot of dog food will contain artificial additives such as preservatives or colours which can be avoided by choosing a natural feed. Typically these feeds are grain-free with high protein content and are more suited to the ancestral diet of dogs.
The health benefits of giving your dog a natural diet has made these feeds increasingly popular recently. Going natural can be more expensive than some of your standard dog foods. But it’s well worth spending the money to get high-quality food that will keep your dog happy and healthy.
What are the benefits?
Some of the many benefits of natural feeding include:
- Better Digestion: Natural ingredients help avoid the digestive problems caused by processed dog food.
- Healthier Coat: The nutrients keep your dog’s coat healthy and better looking.
- Better Weight Management: The quality of feed ensures your dog gets the nutrients they need without having to overeat.
- More Filling: Quality ingredients so your dog will need less food per serving to stay full.
- Fewer Allergies: Without grain content and artificial additives can reduce symptoms of allergies in dogs.
