        Natural and Organic Pet Food

        At Sprouts, we know pet nutrition is just as important to you as your own—which is why we carry the leading brands in natural and organic pet foods and treats including Blue Buffalo, I and Love and You, and Castor Pollux. From grain free, to high protein, your furry friends can enjoy a delicious meal with all the right nutrients without unnecessary fillers. Just as the Paleo diet suggests, eating whole foods like our early ancestors did, has health benefits. The same is true for our pets. While not all pets struggle with conventional foods, they do have very little natural digestive support to break down and metabolize complex carbohydrates. These may remain undigested and may damage the lining of the digestive system over a long period of time.

        Organic Pet Food

        Containing all-natural ingredients like chicken, fish and eggs, organic pet food does not contain any animal by-products, gluten or fillers. With chemical-free additives, an organic pet food diet may reduce the risk of ailments and allergies. You may also see an overall increase in the quality of your pet’s life. With cleaner sources of nutrients and protein, your pet will spend less time digesting the foods and more time benefiting from the powerful nutrients they are receiving.

        Healthy Dog & Cat Treats

        Whether you want to reward good behavior or just show your cat and dog some extra love, healthy treats are the way to go. Grain-free, organic or made from healthy options, you’ll feel good about giving them purr-inducing, tail-wagging nutritious treats.

        Supplements to Keep Pets Healthy

        If you’re looking to take the extra step with your pet’s health, we offer a diverse assortment of supplements for dogs and cats too. You’ll find probiotics, flax oil, multivitamins and supplements to support hip and joint health, regularity, stress, and a healthy skin and coat as well.
