Grain free dog food packs are specially formulated for dogs suffering with frequent stomach indigestion, bloating or are in pain after meals. This type of dog food might be recommended as a diet change over a certain period of time by a certified vet.
The grain-free dog food is mainly hypoallergenic and suitable for dogs that have shown symptoms of wheat allergy or the ones that suffer from digestive issues.
Dog owners should only change their dogs' diet at a vet's recommendation and maintain this diet for the period of time that was advised. Before changing the usual food given to a dog, the vet might ask you to start a trial period before switching to a grain-free diet, in order to see how your dog manages the change.
Dog food brands across the world started to produce grain-free and gluten-free dog food to cater for all breed size and life stages. Too much choice might appear confusing for dog owners, especially as these types of products from certain brands were highlighted as being problematic for some dogs (linking with heart disease due to the lack of or reduced Taurine content and the use of unsuitable grain replacements).
Good brands should be packed with protein and have ingredients of the finest quality, Omega 6 and Omega 3, and plenty of good oils.
The starches used to replace the grain content should be of good quality, with cellulose and soy being a small addition to the kibble or the wet food pack. Here are our preferred grain-free dog food brands:
