[MUSIC PLAYING] Whether you're looking to feed your dog optimum-quality food for lifelong health, or your pet has specific dietary needs, natural foods made from whole ingredients and more unique protein sources are a great choice. In order for a dog food brand to carry the natural nutrition label, it must have selective natural ingredients. This means the ingredients should meet AAFCO nutrition standards; contain high-quality proteins as a primary ingredient; contain nutrients from recognizable whole food sources, like meats, fruits, and vegetables; and not have unnecessary chemicals, preservatives, or additives. A variety of natural nutrition formulas available are designed to support skin and coat, life stages, activity level, breed, and other health conditions. Options include limited ingredient formulas, which are ideal for dogs with food sensitivities because they contain limited quantities of protein and carbohydrates. Higher-protein formulas with protein levels of 32% or more are great for dogs with higher energy needs. Vegetarian options contain no meat-based protein, such as beef, poultry, or fish. While grain-free formulas contain no grains, holistic varieties are based on the holistic health philosophy and contain superfood ingredients, like cranberries and flaxseed. Formulas classified as organic contain food sources that are free of pesticides, growth hormones, or antibiotics. And for sensitive dogs, pet food made with unique protein sources, like venison or duck, can make a big difference in digestion. Choosing the natural nutrition formula that meets your dog's specific needs is one of the most important decisions you'll make for your canine friend's overall health and well-being.
