Absolutely NO, It is a holistic food(human grade ingredients) though and made with good quality ingredients.
Human grade means it is like the normal food we buy for ourselves in the grocery stores, the meat can contain hormones used to speed growth and antibiotic, and animalls are vaccinated against disease, the fruit in vegetables in the regular section made use of fertizlers and pesticide to increase quantity and to prevent insect damage
Most grocery stores have seperate section for their organically produce foods which are higher in price, and that is the type that is used in what is called "Organic" dogfood
Organics is human grade as well but it also documented and proven not to have hormones and anitibiotic and no vaccines in the animals used for producing the meat and grains vegetables, fruits are grown with the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides
Organic foods are much more expensive to produce as the ingredients have to be certified and even for grains soil testing has to be done and recorded while the grain is still growing, the high cost is due to all the paperwork and inspections that are done along the as a result the dog food manufacturer had to reduce costs by lowering the meat content of organically produced foods, so they are very low in protein unless they are using soy to increase the protein amounts
The page gives a listing of the organic foods and a description and the picture of the seal that is used to signify a food is organic,
The companies that produce also make holistic food, so if you want only organic you have to look for the USDA organic seal on the bag
Chetco is only partly right Karma is Organic the other two are holistic,
Timberwolf Organics Is very misleading since they use the word organics in the name, but none of their foods are organic in quality, the link I posted explains at the bottom of the page
