Organic food has become very popular. That's because the benefits of organics are well known. Organically grown food is fresher, usually locally sourced and organic milk and meat are richer in nutrients and better for the environment. What's not in organic food is far more important: fewer or no pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, and GMOs.

We check the labels of the food we buy for ourselves, but do we check the labels of the food we buy for our furry family members? Most pet foods contain animal byproducts and bulk fillers that are not fit to be consumed by people. Why should our pets eat them? Maybe it's time to think about organic food for them too.

The benefits of organic food for pets are numerous according to Organic Authority. There is a reduction in skin ailments and allergies because organic pet food is free of artificial colors, flavor enhancers, chemical additives as well as pesticides. Organic pet food contains quality protein and grains that support your pet's immune systems. There are fewer digestive issues too because the food is easier to digest, and your fur babies will digest more of the nutrients that need.

Organic pet foods are available in pet stores or online and there are choices that include dry kibble, canned, freeze dried, and treats.
