Newman's Own Organics for the furballs in your life.

***I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review. Your opinion may vary from mine.***

My dog, Karma, is a very special girl. Karma is a 3 1/2 year old American Mastiff that was born with a serious heart condition. At first the Veterinarians thought she just had a minor heart murmur, but after a visit to the doggie cardiologist all hope had vanished. She was basically diagnosed with heart failure because of how bad the condition of her heart was. Karma was given no more than 9 months to live; the doc's all figured her heart would give out before she made it to her first birthday. My heart was broken. Just two months earlier, my very best friend and first dog, Buster, had passed away from a stroke. He was only 5 years old and not a single person could tell me why he seemed to age so fast. So here I was, trembling from the thought of having to go through this all over again. Everyone told me to just have her *bleep* (I can't bear to say that awful word) but I wasn't going to give up on her.

I had just started a ton of research on why a fairly healthy 55lb dog could possible age so fast. What I found just absolutely disgusted me...


Most dogs, let me rephrase that, ALL dogs are allergic to wheat, corn, and soy products. If that's the case then why do "big brand" dog food companies list wheat, corn, or soy as one of the first ingredients on their labels? Because the FDA and AAFCO only make sure that all the ingredients are labeled on all dog food products. They do NOT pay attention to the source or safety of the ingredients thrown into most dog foods. So what are you feeding your dogs? Probably a form of wheat, corn, or soy, and by-products, beef, artificial coloring, animal digest, bone meal, salt, sweeteners, and a ton of preservatives among many other unnecessary ingredients. 




Wheat, Corn, or Soy- Like I said before, a major allergen for ALL dogs.
By-products-  Consists of the dry, ground, rendered, clean parts of the carcass of slaughtered chicken, such as necks, feet, undeveloped eggs, and intestines.
Animal Digest- Undecomposed animal tissue. The animal tissues used are usually hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers.
Beef- Dogs have just as much of an issue digesting beef as we humans do. 
Animal meal- Such as Chicken, beef, bone, etc. The rendered tissues, including bone, blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents.
Salt- "While salt is a necessary mineral, it is also generally present in sufficient quantities in the ingredients pet foods include. Just like for humans, too much sodium intake is unhealthy for animals. In poor quality foods it is often used in large amounts to add flavor and make the food more interesting."
Sweeteners-"Sugar or sweetener is an absolutely unnecessary ingredient in pet foods, added to make the product more attractive. Continuous intake can promote hypoglycemia, obesity, nervousness, cataracts, tooth decay, arthritis and allergies. Pets also get addicted to foods that contain sugars, so it can be a tough job trying to get them to eat something healthier."


Now let me ask you this, would you feed that to a member of your family? What I'm getting at here is that I was slowly killing my own dog, Buster, by feeding him that crap on a regular basis. As soon as I got word that Karma only had so long to live, I made it my mission to keep her as healthy and happy as possible. I switched to an all organic dog food which possibly prolonged the life of my very fragile Mastiff. Karma is now 3 1/2 years old and still going strong. She plays like she's a ginormous puppy frolicking in her own little bubble thanks to companies like Newman's Own Organics. 

Newman's Own Organics dog food ingredients consist of natural human grade chicken, organic brown rice, carrots, peas, and is free of herbicides, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and chemical additives. Newman's Own Organics dog food also has no wheat or corn products, artificial colors or flavor enhancers and is preserved with vitamin E. They also offer an array of wet dog food and organic dog treats as well. Wouldn't you feel so much better feeding your pet Newman's Own Organics instead of "big brand" dog food? I do and our dogs are much healthier because of the choices I have made regarding their food. Newman's Own Organics dog food gives your dog the nutrition he needs without all the added, should I say, crap? When you switch your dog to Newman's Own Organics you will not only notice a difference in appearance but in their physical abilities as well. Newman's Own Organics will have your dog running circles around other dogs because of the much better energy, strength, and agility levels obtained from their all organic dog food; All the while being as handsome as ever with his shiny coat and healthy smile.


I could honestly sit here and lecture you all day about making the right food choices for your pet but why do that when you can find out for yourself? Newman's Own Organics dog food is obviously a little pricier then regular old dog food because of the human-grade qualities it has; however, their food runs a little cheaper (price not quality) then most holistic and organic brands. I can't tell you how important it is to make the switch to Newman's Own Organics. You'll increase your dogs life span as well as cut back on Vet visits and unnecessary health issues.  Our dogs love Newman's Own Organics and I'm positive your dogs will, too.

  5. What a cute doggy! I have a mini wiener named Doug he is my whole world! Last time I tried to feed him organic food it made him really sick so we switched back to purina but I'd be willing to give it a try again because I really like the idea of giving him something that will be healthier.

    1. Really? Our pitbulls have terrible stomach problems on food that isn't organic and super stinky stomach problems at that. YUCK! Did you try switching him over really slow? Usually when you switch a dog to organic the process is a lot easier and faster then switching between non-organic dog foods.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…
