All natural – what does that mean, and why should you care whether or not what you give your fluffy best friend is all natural?
Let me tell you a short story about a human. Me.
About eight months ago I decided to go all natural with my diet. I went so far as becoming a vegan. Don’t get me wrong – I didn’t give up coffee with artificial creamer and refined sugar. I mean, I’m not crazy, understand.
But I pretty much gave up everything else.
I did this for one reason, and it was not to lose weight, though I could stand to lose a whole person worth.
I don’t want to be the 60 year old woman in WalMart on the hoveround, asking some punk covered in tatts for help.
Not that I have anything against tattoos.
In three weeks I noticed a difference. Mainly:
- My weekly migraines disappeared. They were hormonal, so really they were monthly, but they’d built over 20 years to being weekly. GONE.
- My heartburn disappeared. No more monthly purchases of Prilosec!
- I stopped having to wear deodorant. Yeah. Weird, huh?
That all told me that:
- The hormones in my diet have really been screwing with me. Meat, dairy, and who knows what else?
- The additives in my diet make me stink. Literally. How else to explain the lack of odor when switching to all natural food?
Now, I can’t guarantee that switching your dog to an all natural diet will mean a longer life or fewer aches and pains in their old age, less doggy smell, or anything else. But for Pete’s sake – if it works for people, why not for critters?
Think about the treats you give your fur baby. In fact, go get the box or bag right now. Go ahead.
Got it? Where are the treats made? Made in the USA? Can you pronounce all of the ingredients?
If you answered no to either of those last two questions, I’d invite you to rethink your baby’s treats. And I’d like you to think about finding some Jones Natural Chews for your sweet dog. Head to their FAQ page if you want to know more. Like the casings on their sausages – the same ones used for human consumption. And glycerin? What the heck is that and why is it the one weird ingredient in a Jones Natural Chew? Go find out! The answer is really kinda cool.
Oh! And don’t forget to enter our contest to win your VERY OWN TREAT! Good dog!
Until I write again …
