Grain free dog food has become all the rage, and while it may stem from dieting trends for people, in many cases, a grain free doggy diet can be a good switch. However, just like with any change in diet, you should consult a vet or dietician to make sure that this change is right for you.
What is Grain Free?
Grain free is exactly what it sounds like -- food without ingredients like corn, oats, wheat, or rice (aka grains). A diet similar to the many “low carb” diets we are so fond of, these foods promise to fill your pet up with nothing proteins derived from meats -- a diet more closely linked to what they would have eaten in the wild. Also, with a grain free diet, since every piece of kibble is packed with that much more protein, the serving size can be substantially less, resulting in a healthier pet.
