Should You Be Feeding Your Dog A Holistic Dog Food?


There are a lot of rules and regulations about what can and can’t go on a dog food label. For example, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) defines and regulates the term "natural" dog food. And the word “organic” is regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

But what is holistic dog food? The truth is that there’s no regulation or definition when it comes to holistic dog food. Different people have different ideas about what a holistic dog food should look like. Some people want their dog food to be made from natural ingredients, which is why we offer choices like Pro Plan Natural or Beyond. Other people want a holistic dog food that focuses on all aspects of their dog’s health and wellness. That’s why we formulate our dog food to support your dog’s general health and well-being, providing him with the complete and balanced nutrition he needs to thrive.
