Australian Organic Sustainable Dog Treats from humanely raised meat is fantastic; it tastes great, the pasture raised soil it is made from has extra nutrients, it’s produced without destroying the environment or threatening public health, and its sale supports responsible farmers who choose to use sound agricultural practices.
Unfortunately, it’s more expensive to raise stock sustainably than to mass-produce them on a factory farm that places the stock into feedlots, that feeds them grains to fatten them quickly for sale (these industrial operations don’t have to pay for the damage they cause). As a result, sustainably organic raised meat costs more than the meat churned out by factory farms and feedlots as it takes longer for pasture raised, humanely sourced stock to reach the same weight.
But don’t be discouraged; you and your family can still enjoy sustainable meat — even if you’re on a tight budget, by choosing quality over quantity. Why not experiment? One week, take the money you would have spent on pet treats, and use it to buy a smaller amount of sustainably raised dog treats.
While your dog will eat less that week, you may find that they don’t miss the factory farmed stuff one bit because they are getting better value for money, a delicious, healthy sustainable alternative with more nutrients and flavour. With Australian dog owners paying for vet bills and other costs, it may be just what your furry friend is after, full of vitamins and minerals, omega 3 and 6 for heart health, recommended for a healthy diet, eating less treats of higher quality is actually better for dogs of all ages.
