Grain Free Dog Food Diet

Grain-free is becoming an increasingly popular dog food diet. Some critics believe humans are simply mirroring their own food habits in their pets, but there are cases where a grain-free diet can be beneficial for your furry friend, mainly: allergies.

So what are the symptoms of a pet with allergies?

  • Itchiness
  • Excessive hair loss
  • Bald patches
  • Inflamed skin
  • Sores
  • Scabs

If your dog is experiencing the above symptoms, it’s possible they’re allergic to something, but don’t assume the culprit is grain. In a recent study conducted by Veterinary Dermatology, only 7 of 278 dog allergy cases were found to be caused by corn; 95 dogs were found to be allergic to beef.

Some pet owners believe that since the ancestral dogs ate a grain-free diet, so should the dogs of today. This is not necessarily true. Modern dogs have evolved, and so have their dietary needs, just as we humans have seen our nutrition needs change.

The most important thing to consider when choosing a grain-free diet for your dog is that the meal provides balanced and complete nutrition. Some dog foods are grain free, but the ingredients used to replace the grains is simply filler, and not ideal nutrition for your pet. If your dog has inappropriate nutrition, he’ll be unhealthy, and as a loving pet parent, this is the last thing you want!

When choosing the right grain-free dog food for your dog, do your research read the labels, and talk to your veterinarian to make sure you’re taking the right steps to help keep your four-legged friend as healthy as possible. dogfoodadvisor.com is a great resource with third-party analysis of every dog food on the market.
