Some important information about grain-free diets
When it comes to selecting a diet for our dogs, pet owners are thoroughly spoiled for choice, as there are so many different varieties on the market. Choosing whether to use a grain-free or grain-friendly diet is another decision that many dog owners struggle to make, but before you choose, lets strip it back to the basics.
Grain-free or grain-friendly?
When it comes to deciding between a grain-free or grain-friendly diet for your dog, there is no right or wrong answer. It is important that the diet you choose is of high quality and free from any artificial additives that could potentially be harmful to your dog, and most importantly it must be ‘complete and balanced’ if it is to be the only food you provide for your pet.
However, if you feel that your dog tends to display intolerant or allergic symptoms to foods that contain grains, then perhaps looking at using a grain-free, hypoallergenic alternative could be beneficial to your dog. Additionally, choosing a grain-free diet for dogs that are not sensitive or intolerant to certain foods is also completely safe, and may even avoid any grain-related allergies from developing over time.
Reactive symptoms to food could include itchy, flaky skin, excessive scratching, chewing, licking, coughing and vomiting etc. However, it is important to have a thorough veterinarian examination of your dog in order to gain an accurate diagnosis if your dog displays any of these symptoms.
