Natural With “Added” Vitamins and Minerals?



It is a difficult task walking into a pet store and trying to find the best possible food for your beloved dog or cat. There are hundreds bags, many claiming to be “natural” but is it really? Pet food that is marketed and sold as natural, if labeled correctly, is required to have a statement on the packaging similar to, “Natural with Added Vitamins and Minerals.” This statement is a disclaimer to let the consumer know that the added vitamins and minerals are not natural.
