When it comes to looking at healthy eating, you may have heard people waxing lyrical about the benefits of organic food. If you’re not sure what this is, it's food which has been farmed and prepared without the use of chemicals such as pesticides, man-made fertilizers, or additives and is said to be fresher and more nutritious.
The questions which we now must ask is, if organic food is good for humans, then why not dogs? That is exactly what we are going to find out as we review one of the top-selling organic dog foods, which is produced by TruDog.
TruDog Real Meat Organic Dog Food
TruDog is a very young company that was created out of what is quite a sad story. The company's owners had a Great Dane called Truman, which sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer. The cruel irony at the time was they had already switched their own eating habits to more natural and wholesome foods, and they, and their family and were reaping the health benefits of it.
There were no organic foods available for dogs, including Truman, and his owners asked the question 'If organic food is good enough for humans, why not dogs?' So, they embarked on a mission to research canine nutrition, and eventually, TruDog was formulated.
Its organic real meat dog food was first sold in 2015, so it is very new to the market compared to many dog foods, but since its creation, it has stacked up a load of positive reviews from dog owners. Whilst the story of this dog food started with a sad event, Truman's spirt lives on, as his name inspired the company's brand, 'TruDog'.

Overview of Features
The main benefit that this dog food provides your beloved pet, that few others can do, is to give them as close to a real meaty meal as can be without giving them actual raw meat. Remember, at their core dogs are raw meat eaters, and feeding them that is the most natural meal you could give them.
TruDog's Organic Dog Food ingredients contain that meat in dried form, but once it has had water added it becomes wholesome and nutritious.
Here are just some of the benefits of feeding your dog this organic dog food:
- Easier to digest
- Can help control your dog's weight
- Prevents foul breath
- Keeps their coats looking shiny and healthy,
- Tones their muscles
- Strengthens their bones
- Reduces allergies
- Increases energy levels
- Cleans gums
- Boosts immunity
Oh, it also tastes yummy too. How do we know if we haven't tasted it ourselves? That's a good question but the huge number of positive reviews from dog owners who say their dogs love it, should answer it.
How to Use It?
TruDog organic dog food is freeze-dried so whatever amount you are preparing for your dog, you will need to add warm water. The proportion is 2 tbsp per 1/3 cup of dried food, which is the amount you would feed a dog weighing around 6lbs. At the other end of the scales (literally) a 40lb dog would have 2 1/2 cups of food and 3/4 cup of water. All the daily feeding guidelines are clearly marked on the packaging.
The other thing you need to do to successfully feed your dog TruDog organic dog food is to gradually switch them across, as it won't help your dog's digestion if you simply give them a full bowl of it right away.
On days 1 and 2 give them their normal amount of food but proportion it to 75% of their current food to 25% TruDog. Then on days 3 and 4 give them equal portions of each, on days 5 and 6 reduce their old food to 25% and TruDog to 75%. By day 7 or 8 you should be able to give them 100% TruDog and with that they are fully on the path to healthier and more nutritious mealtimes.
Whilst there are plenty of dog foods which state they are 'all natural' they all have a list of ingredients that show they are not organic in the same way that TruDog dog food is. So, whilst there might not be an alternative food, how about giving your dog an organic treat?
An excellent one is Green Butterfly Brands Organic Grain Free Dog Treats which are made from organic ingredients. The real beef is something that your dog is bound to love, and each one that is purchased sees a donation being made to US veterans to train service dogs.
Just as you are responsible for your own health, when you own a dog you are also responsible for its health too. Nothing impacts how well you are meeting that responsibility more than what you feed your dog.
The creation of TruDog's Organic Dog Food may have a very poignant beginning with the loss of Truman leading his owners to question whether what they fed him did nothing to prevent, or worse, may have accelerated, his demise.
We're sure you love your dog, so if you want to feed them the closest thing to a truly 100% natural food, whose nutritional values have not been compromised by chemicals or pesticides, then this dog food is for you, or rather it's for your dog.
