Whether commercial or raw diet?
My local pet supply chain just started stocking Innova’s "Karma" – the most thoroughly organic dog food I know of.
But it’s .99 for a 6 lb bag, and that’s the only size they sell. Whaaaat?
Taste of the Wild, a better food (more and better meat sources) except non-organic, is .99/6 lb bag
If I’m at the supermarket picking up meats for my pups and the organic stuff is close in price to the non-organic, I’ll get the organic.
But 3x the price? /lb – more expensive per/lb than actual organic chicken itself?
Kinda like a hybrid car – I’ll gladly become a customer when you make the price within reason.
I would think raw feeders might want to feed organic as an extension of some of the reasons why they turned away from commersh food in the first place.
There is the USDA standard, and Karma is USDA certified organic.
Alot of other ‘organic’ foods use other entities for certification – and I find all that to be completely non-credible.
I don’t think there is zero actual value in truly organic food – just not enough for me personally to pay much extra for it.
