Dry Organic Cat Food

Organic cat food doesn't just meet your cat's nutritional needs. It's also ecologically sound, because its ingredients are grown and produced without pesticides, hormones, GMOs or chemicals of any kind. Here's why dry organic cat food is the best option for feeding your cat.

Organic Cat Food Uses Only the Highest Quality Ingredients

The ingredients used in organic cat food are grown and produced without the use of pesticides, herbicides, hormones, GMOs or chemical additives of any kind. The animals raised to make organic cat food are often free range and are fed on organically grown grain. They aren't fed hormones or GMO products.

Unlike conventional cat foods, organic cat food doesn't use animal byproducts as a source of protein. Most conventional cat foods rely on the parts of the animal considered unfit for human consumption—like the feet, heads and entrails, for instance—as a source of protein. Organic cat foods contain meat of the highest quality, because organic cat food companies use the same parts of the animal to make their products as you do to make your dinner.

The Health Benefits of Dry Organic Cat Food

Just like conventional dry cat food, organic dry cat food can help keep your cat's teeth clean. But its health benefits don't end there. Because organic dry cat food doesn't contain pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, dyes, hormones, antibiotics or chemical flavorings, it's the healthiest possible diet you can feed your cat. Your cat will be healthier, happier and more active on an organic food diet.

Organic cat foods make without wheat or corn can be a great alternative for cats with food allergies. Corn and wheat free organic cat foods are also easier for your cat to digest, and, since they don't contain any filler, your cat will need to eat less food to feel full and get the nutrition that he needs.

Organic cat food often contains added omega-3 fatty acids, which can help keep your cat's fur and skin healthy and beautiful. Organic cat food is often supplemented with probiotics, which can help your cat digest his food and maintain his intestinal health. Organic cat food also contains more antioxidants, to keep your cat healthy and active even into his later years.

Switching to an Organic Cat Food Diet

There are many organic cat foods available on the market today, and many of them can be purchased at your local grocery store. Pet supply stores also stock a wide range of organic wet, dry and raw cat foods. If you're unsure which organic cat food is best for your cat, ask your vet.

Switch your cat to an organic cat food diet slowly, because changing his diet abruptly can cause diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, gas and other digestive upsets. Mix one part organic cat food with three parts of your cat's old food, and feed this mixture for one week. On the second week, feed a half and half mixture of organic and conventional foods. On the third week, feed a mixture that's three parts organic food and one part conventional food; switch your cat to organic food only on the fourth week.
