Organic dog treats are simply dog treats made with organic ingredients.
The ingredients cannot have been grown with the use of pesticides, prohibited fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms for pest control. If it’s a meat, poultry, or egg product, then the animal cannot have been fed antibiotics or chemicals. Food additives are also not allowed in organic products.
Organic food labels are only placed on products that have passed a rigorous inspection process.
To carry an organic label on the package, the food product has to be certified by the USDA’s National Organic Program, a government agency. This is why organic products that have are usually more expensive.
