Organic! Is it all it's cracked up to be? #OrganicPet

This post is sponsored by Castor and Pollux Natural Petworks and the Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Organix Pet Food, but you know that I, Johann The Dog, only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Castor and Pollux Natural Petworks is not responsible for the content of this article.

If you know us, you know how we focus on a healthier lifestyle, a green lifestyle and an organic lifestyle. That's how Mum was raised, and that's how she's raised us!

So when the nice folks at Castor and Pollux Natural PetWorks who have a wonderful organic pet food wanted us to talk organic, we jumped at the chance to talk about healthier foods and treats...'cause we are agility dogs and we love jumping!

We've learned a lot about organic over the years, and with the increase in GMO's in human and pet foods, the increased use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides, and the heavy use of antibiotics and hormones in factory farmed meats, it's never been more important than now to go organic.

That's why, when Mum searches out foods and treats for us, she always looks for the most holistic, organic resource available. From our favorite moose antler chews, all the way to our raw fed chicken backs, necks and feet....and everything in between. It's important for our health to not be exposed to all those unnecessary and added chemicals and drugs.

When Mum was writing not too long ago about GMOs and how they may affect your dog, she discovered something that made her very happy: A certified organic label precludes the use of GMOs in your food and we believe that's a very good thing.


Because we believe, just like Mum, that the most whole, unprocessed foods are the healthiest foods for us. Yes, we, just like Mum, may go for the occasional 'processed' treat, but the idea behind our lifestyle is minimizing risks; and with organic, you are minimizing a lot of risk in your dog's health.

So what do you think? Is organic all it's cracked up to be?

The folks at Castor and Pollux, makers of ORGANIX, the most complete line of certified organic natural food for pets made under the USDA’s National Organic Program, and featuring certified organic, free-range chicken or turkey as the number one ingredient; organic fruits, vegetables and more, have created an interesting survey to help find out what you and other pet lovers think and know about organic and organic pet food.

So head on over and take the survey now (it will only take a minute or so), we'd love to have your opinion on organic, and what it means to you and your dog!


  1. I didn't know that USDA Organic meant no-GMO's. When their label first began it wasn't as strict as others (particularly in the amount of time soil needed to be fertilizer free) so I have often discounted it but your post prompted me to read up on it and it has improved significantly.

  2. Lately I have been buying organic whenever possible for human food. I know that I need to extend that to dog food as well. Hormones and GMO's scare me.


Thanks for barking in!
