Grain Free’s the Way to Be

A lot of people are realizing that pet food companies have been pulling the wool over their eyes with unnecessary filler ingredients like corn and soy. The thing about these ingredients is that our dogs simply have no use for them; in fact, their digestive system offers very little support when it comes to metabolizing complex carbs and grains. The undigested grain relies on fermentation to break down which, over time, can cause damage to the lining of the digestive system and cause bowel inflammation disorders, food allergies/sensitivities, and obesity. Grain free foods also offer more protein and fat with less unnecessary carbohydrates, keeping your pet fuller longer and properly nourishing their body rather than just filling up their tummies.

Signs your pet may have a food allergy include gas, diarrhea, rash or skin irritation (look for incessant scratching, licking or chewing to relieve itchiness), vomiting, or even frequent ear infections. Some breeds are more prone to food allergies so a grain free diet may be the best option for pure breeds. It’s up to you if you think your pet can benefit from this type of diet, but if you are going to make the switch, be sure to do it gradually to allow their digestive system to adjust and avoid any upsets.
