In my opinion, Coco is one lucky dog! Not only is she walked for at least 2 hours a day, she also has a big comfy basket, comes to work with me, is regularly checked by the vet and of course given a lot of praise and attention too! She is our little star.
However, until I read this report tonight regarding organic dog food, I didn’t realise just how lucky she was! Coco is fed on Lily’s Kitchen, which is a truly fantastic organic dog food.
I can hear you now, scoffing at the craziness of organic dog food – but once you read what goes into ‘normal’ dog food, it’s enough to turn your stomach! Did you know that dog food only needs to have 5% of a ‘meat’ to be classed as beef or chicken? And who knows where this meat is from or how it was reared… Horrible!
President Obama’s recent Cancer Panel Report states: “Exposure to pesticides can be decreased by choosing, to the extent possible, food grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers,” the report, “Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now,” said.
“Exposure to antibiotics, growth hormones, and toxic run-off from livestock feed lots can be minimized by eating free-range meat raised without these medications,” the report added.
There is definitely a BIG price to pay though for the lovely Lily’s food, but by cutting back in other areas of our lives, we feel it’s worth it. Obviously though the price point can understandably price it out of reach for most dog owners and there are other great dog food options on the market, but I heed you to read the ingredients… Some of them make very interesting reading!
However, Coco’s health is so important to us and her coat now gleams. She really is one happy dog, which probably explains why her tail constantly wags!
I also love their packaging! Yes I am a total sucker for well designed products too!
So thank you Lily’s and keep up the good work!
