What we feed our pets has come under increased scrutiny lately, with lots of so-called ‘complete’ pet foods not really delivering the health and nutritional benefits we’d hoped. Just as we are taking a closer look at exactly what goes into our own food – we’re also more interested in the quality and provenance of our pet’s food.
With this in mind, we’ve rounded up eight of the best organic and free range pet foods, all made from ethically sourced and biologically appropriate ingredients, to give your hungry hounds and fussy felines all the tasty goodness they need.
A seriously smart and sumptuous solution for busy, health conscious pet owners, Pet Organic offers gourmet organic and free range meals for discerning dogs, delivered straight to your door. Opt for a weekly or monthly menu of freshly prepared meals including Lamb Hotpot, Kedgeree and Vegetables, Turkey Casserole or Cumberland Pie. You’ll have to fight your four-legged friend for these delicious pouches of pooch goodness.
