Pets Should Eat Their Fruits and Veggies, Too!

Your mother always told you to eat your fruits and vegetables. That same advice is good for our pets, too. Dogs and cats enjoy the same health benefits as humans do from the essential nutrients naturally supplied by fruits and vegetables.

“Whole vegetables, like pumpkin, broccoli, spinach and carrots are going to provide quality nutrition that the dog’s body can actually utilize for optimal health and strength,” says Tracie Hotchner, author of The Dog Bible.¹ Some dogs may eat raw vegetables, such as carrots, as a treat. But not all pets are so cooperative. Ever see a cat eat broccoli? For this reason, the easiest way to provide your pet with healthy
 fruits and vegetables is to make sure these ingredients are in the pet food he or she eats.

Fruits and vegetables supply your pet with essential vitamins and minerals, as well as phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. The natural antioxidants in fruits and vegetables will help keep the body working at its best, for a strong defense against disease. Fruits and vegetables are protective to health as they’re helpful at reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and some cancers. They’re also low in calories, which helps prevent obesity.²

When selecting a pet food, check the ingredients to see that it contains foods like cranberry, avocados, apples, blueberries, apricots, broccoli, spinach, carrots, artichokes, and pumpkin. These are all found in Nature’s Logic diets, and provide essential vitamins, minerals and other trace nutrients naturally. We never add chemically synthesized vitamins, minerals or other artificial nutrients. Nature’s Logic® provides complete and balanced nutrition for your pet by using whole foods and 100% natural ingredients, not chemicals. For more information visit http://www.natureslogic.com/.
