With more people becoming health-conscious and choosing organic food at record rates, is it any wonder the market for natural and organic pet food rose 200 percent in 2006 and was expected to soar another 500 percent in 2007? These huge increases are due in part to owners wanting to help their pets live longer, healthier lives.

Cardinal Laboratories, which has been a leading maker of pet products for over 60 years, recognized the desire of pet owners to not only feed their pets quality, nutritious food but to give them the same quality in treats, and has introduced Pet Botanics Omega Treats for Dogs.

Omega Treats are free from by-products and fillers, and do not contain other ingredients common in pet foods, such as wheat, soybean, BHA, BHT, glutens and artificial colors.  In fact, they have only eight healthy, natural ingredients most owners may find in their own diets, including real poultry or fish, sweet potato and vitamin E.

Best of all, Omega Treats are loaded with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which are important for cardiovascular and joint health, and have a wealth of antioxidants, protein, vitamins and minerals. All this nutrition is packed into a treat that is non-fattening and has only nine calories per piece, so owners can feel good about giving Omega Treats to their dogs without fear of overfeeding. Omega Treats are available in Wild Tuna, Wild Salmon, Duck and Chicken and are packaged in a reclosable pouch designed to keep the treats fresh. They can be purchased at PetsMart nationwide.
