Difference between All Natural and Organic Pet Foods

You may see some cat and dog foods advertised as "organic" and others as "all natural pet foods." The most important thing for me when it comes to my pet's food is that there are no chemicals, by-products, and preservatives, but I thought you might be interested to know the difference between the two.

All natural means the food items are not chemically altered or synthesized in any way, and they come from plants and animals. There currently is no standard required to be labeled "all natural," so read the ingredients carefully.

Organic means the food has been produced, manufactured and handled using organic means. If a product is labeled "organic" it has to meet standards set for organic food.

An organic food is not necessarily all natural, and all natural foods are not necessarily organic.
