The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program defines and regulates the term “organic” for pet food and human food. “Organic” refers to the way a crop or animal is grown or raised and handled. Organic crops must be grown on land free from pesticides for three years. Organic livestock is fed organic feed, is not given antibiotics or hormones, and has access to the outdoors.
Some important guidelines to follow when selecting a complete and balanced cat food include:
If you do choose to feed organic cat food, look for the USDA organic seal as proof of a certified organic pet food. Pet foods with that seal must contain 95% to 100% organic ingredients.
It is important to choose a food that is 100% complete and balanced for your cat’s life stage. Formulas that meet your cat’s nutritional needs are imperative to her health.
