Holistic Dog Food and its Benefits
June 25 2020
Holistic nutrition is all about eating healthy food as close to its natural state as possible for optimum health and well- being. Hallmarks of holistic nutrition include unrefined, unprocessed, organic and locally grown whole foods. Veterinarians that practice with a holistic approach to dog health, look at the canine's overall health to determine how to treat it.
Holistic medicine uses several different practices, including acupuncture, massage, herbal remedies, chiropractic treatment, aromatherapy, nutrition, acupressure, and even sound therapy to address a variety of ailments and conditions.
There are several reasons why you should switch your dog over to a high-quality dog food. The following reasons below may be caused by your dog consuming a low quality dog food.
- Excessive scratching
- Flaky skin
- Ear infections
- Constant licking of paws
- Lack of energy
Benefits of Holistic Food
Your pet food with the right combination of nutrients and protein is a major contributor to his overall health. If your pet suffers from allergies or digestive upsets, adjustments to his overall diet can make all the difference.
A low quality dog food usually contains fillers, meat byproducts, and inexpensive ingredients such as corn or wheat gluten.
Holistic dog food contains these high-quality ingredients, such as whole grain rice, real meat, antioxidants, vitamins, probiotics, digestive enzymes, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients.
Switching your dog’s food over to holistic one should be a gradual process and you may not notice chances in your dog’s overall health immediately due to it taking weeks for poor quality food to leave your dog’s system and for nutrient levels from the new food to reach optimal levels.
Holistic Dog food provides some of the following benefits below:
Better Coat Health
One ingredient that helps considerably with overall coat health is fish oil.
Improved Skin Health
Fish oil and vitamin E are great ingredients that will maintain your dog’s overall skin health.
Sharpened Eye Health
Holistic dog foods that are rich in antioxidant-rich ingredients are very beneficial for your dog’s healthy eyes.
Fewer Bowel Movements
Switching your dog to grain-free holistic food results in fewer and/or smaller bowel movements.
