Organix Dog Food Review – Grain Free Salmon & Peas Recipe
Suitable for dogs with sensitive skin and stomach
The salmon recipe dog food is suitable for dogs with sensitive skin and stomach as it does not contain the common fillers and allergens such as corn, wheat, or soy, found in regular dog food. Apart from that, you will be pleased to know that the ingredients used do not contain any artificial preservatives, growth hormones, or antibiotics.
Certified organic ingredients
While there are many organic dog food brands that claim to be organic, Organix is one of the few to be certified by the USDA. Plus, their ingredients are all sourced from the U.S. with no ingredients from China, and prepared in organic certified kitchens in the U.S. as well.
High quality salmon
Feeding your dog salmon is beneficial in many ways. First, salmon itself is a good high quality source of protein. Secondly, it is a fatty fish that provides a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which support the immune system and is beneficial for healthy skin and coat. The fatty acids from salmon also help support muscle growth, joint health, strong bones and teeth, and tissue repair. Plus, research has shown that salmon is a better protein option for dogs with allergies.
High in protein
The Organix Salmon and Peas organic dog food is high in protein, boasting 26% protein content – well above the required minimum amounts set by the AAFCO (22.5% for growing or reproducing dogs, and 18% for adults). Apart from salmon, the chicken meal in this recipe also provides extremely high nutrition protein – 4 times as much protein as fresh meat. This recipe also contains a good mixture of plant protein sources such as organic peas, organic garbanzo beans, organic flaxseeds, and organic pea protein.
Good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
Ingredients in this recipe also provide loads of good fatty acids in your dog’s diet. Fatty acids are important ingredients in a dog’s diet, contributing towards healthy coat and skin in dogs. Salmon is a rich natural source of these fatty acids, as are organic flaxseeds, organic coconut oil, and chicken fat. Don’t be alarmed with the inclusion of chicken fat in this recipe, though. The fat is extracted from chicken during the rendering process, and the fat is actually high in linoleic acid and omega-6 fatty acid, both of which are essential fatty acids for dogs.
High in fiber
Fiber is known to have many health benefits – in canines, it contributes to healthy bowel movements and to satiety, too. This Organix salmon dog food recipe has several fiber-rich ingredients, namely organic peas, organic barley, and organic flaxseed. Organix dog food reviews from existing pet owners can confirm this too, with several owners reporting more regular, healthier stools in their dogs.
Rich in nutrients and vitamins
Apart from the above, the Organix organic dog food recipe is packed full of vitamins and nutrients that are beneficial for your dog. For example, organic peas are also a good source of carbohydrates and vitamins such as folic acid and Vitamin C, as well as minerals. Other than that, peas have a low GI and may improve insulin response in canines. Chicken liver contains 10 to 100 times the nutrients of muscle meat, and has a large amount of protein, vitamin A, vitamin B, iron, trace minerals, and CoQ10.
As a high protein, organic dog food, the Organix Salmon and Peas is highly recommended for dogs with sensitive stomachs or skin.
