Wholistic Pet Organics Commercial and Specialty Dog Foods and Their Relationship With Supplements.

Are You Filling the Nutritional Void in Your Pets Diet?

As pet parents, we constantly seek the best for our furry family members. Daily, we are targeted with ads displayed on screens all around us. Many claims are made as to why you should pick one food over the other. When you finally choose the right food, you are led to believe that is all that is needed. This is not the case. 

Supplements like Wholistic Pet Organics® Canine Complete™ fill the nutritional voids in modern foods. Many foods make claims of added enzymes, probiotics, and even joint support; however, the levels to which these are added are not enough to have a meaningful impact on your pet's wellbeing - it's merely a marketing technique.

Due to the manufacturing processes involved in making most modern pet foods, enzymes and probiotics get processed out. Manufacturers who indicate they have added enzymes to replace those lost either do not add the recommended concentration, or the enzymes are not formulated to survive up until your pet consumes it. Additionally, those claiming added joint support do not have nearly the amounts needed for any benefit.

For example, when looking at a leading brand commercial food, they add 1200 mg of nutraceuticals (joint support) per 1 kilogram or 2.2 lbs. If we take an average 60-pound dog, who, per the instructions, requires 4 cups of food (1 lbs.) per day, this would equate to receiving 544 mg of joint support. However, this same dog needs a minimum of approximately 2000-2500 mg of nutraceuticals a day. This leaves a deficiency of 1456-1956 mg! 

This is where a joint supplement, like Wholistic Pet Organics® Joint Mobility™ should be added. Not only will Joint Mobility™ add missing nutrients to the food, but it will add 3975 mg of joint support in a 15g scoop! To obtain these levels with the same leading commercial food brand, you would have to feed 29 cups of food per day!

Quality food is the foundation on which to build your pet's diet. Adding essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and more will help balance your pets' meals and thus, improve their health and wellbeing.

One of our core principles at Wholistic Pet Organics® is to positively impact our community by improving the lives of its pets and their owners. We believe that there will continue to be a movement away from chemical-laden, inferior-quality pet products to healthy, all-natural alternatives. Our animals depend totally and entirely on us; They deserve the very best we can give.
