Grain-free dog food packs are specially formulated for dogs suffering from frequent stomach indigestion, bloating, or pain after meals. This dog food might be recommended as a diet change over a certain period by a certified vet.
The grain-free dog food is mainly hypoallergenic and suitable for dogs with wheat allergy symptoms or those with digestive issues.
Dog owners should only change their dogs’ diet at a vet’s recommendation and maintain this diet for the 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 to see how your dog manages the change.
Around the world, dog food brands started to produce grain-free and gluten-free dog food to cater to all breed sizes 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 (linked with heart disease due to the lack of or reduced Taurine content and the use of unsuitable grain replacements).
Brands that offer high-quality grain free dog food formulas
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:
