Pet Food Myths and Truths – Week 1

UNDERSTANDING PET FOOD LABELS

Organic:

“100% Organic” – must contain 100% organic ingredients.

“Organic” – must include 95% organic ingredients by weight.

“Made with organic” – must contain 70% and must contain 3 listed organic ingredients.

If a food is less than 70% organic the label can only name the organic ingredients with no additional claims.

NOTE: Organic dog food has not been proven to be more nutritious or of any health benefits to dogs or cats. It does not denote superior ingredients or health benefits.
