Um… is this bone organic?
Pets be get'n snobby! Pet food aisles are starting to resemble their human counterparts, with natural and gourmet items increasingly taking up space. But owners should educate themselves on which foods really are a health benefit.
These days, our pets may be eating better than we are. Big-box pet stores and precious pet boutique shelves are increasingly stocked with gourmet edibles that are corn-free, wheat-free, locally sourced, byproduct-free, free-range, minimally processed and raw.
Many come with homey, inviting labels, and some look palatable even for humans.
At Petco, a number of locations now have a wood-floored store-within-a-store for natural foods.
BUT are they actually better?
So far organic pet food hasn't been proven with scientific research… but it makes your dog look soopa cool!
