Holistic Dog Food
The holistic approach to dog food takes all parts of your dog’s health and nutritional needs into consideration. Holistic is defined by Merriam Webster as relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts. In relation to dog food, this means that the nutritional profile of the foods takes everything into consideration. Holistic foods are balanced for optimal health, considering skin and coat health, eye health, digestive health, heart health, reduced allergies, and more energy. Here at K9Cuisine, we offer a variety of brands of holistic foods that offer many benefits for your pup. From dry kibble to moist food options, these foods take your pup into consideration, not just part of him!!
When it comes to your pup, skin and coat health is much more than just looking good at the dog park! A healthy coat sheds less and healthy skin experiences less flaking and itching, making your pup much happier. Holistic foods often include fish oils and vitamin E to help promote good skin and coat, making your pup look amazing and feel just as good!
Fatty, cheaper cuts of meat are often used to create standard dog foods. Makers of holistic dog foods know that leaner, quality cuts of meat are much better for a healthy heart. Leaner meats keep weight-gain related issues at bay and helps keep your canine companion’s heart healthy and strong.
Some dog foods are had for pups to digest and can often lead to intestinal issues. Foods with grain can create digestive issues or allergies that make your pup’s tummy upset. Holistic foods are often grain-free, reducing the allergy and upset tummy risks and reducing bowel movements, as those unnecessary fillers in food contribute to frequent poops. In addition, most holistic foods contain probiotics that promote the optimal levels of healthy gut bacteria, which helps them digest what they eat, making sure they get all the nutritional benefits the food offers.
Because holistic food is much easier to digest, you may find switching your dog over will result in more energy. When the body is not expending energy to process hard to digest food, there is more energy available to play and run. This might mean more trips to the dog park and more games of fetch!!
If you have a pup that really suffers with food sensitivities and allergies, holistic foods are often very beneficial. As grain is often the cause of food allergies, grain-free holistic foods reduce the exposure to grain and often reduce symptoms of excessive licking, chewing of the feet, hair loss, flaky skin, and so much more. Eliminating those symptoms makes your pup much happier!!
