    All Natural is not regulated by the government, so it could very well have pesticides used, and synthetic fertilizers. In fact it could be an all around conventional product.

    USDA organic, means that the company is inspected once a year, to make sure that they arent using and

    GMO's ( genetically modified organisms - which if you do not know is pretty much man made organisms)

    Radiation

    synthetic fertilizers

    sewage fertilizers

    and of course

    synthetic pesticides

    So if it is not USDA certified organic, I would probably stay clear from it.

    I feed natural, not holistic, but, all natural, there are some differences,but I do this because my dogs and a lot of other dogs are allergic to corn and/or wheat and a lot of the dog foods have those as main ingredients. The all naturals dont have either usually and no fillers. For a dog that has reached a yr., out of puppy food, you could use the Eukanuba Naturally Wild, its good but not regular Eukanuba. Nutro Naturals has a puppy food and Nature's Recipe and several others.

    no. in 2005 congress passed a measure to make it easier to put Synthetic Additives into organic food. In other words thats bad stuff.
