We all want the best dog food for our pets. Just like we do in our own diets we want our dogs to be eating the best food for them and all the benefits of the right nutrients and without too much of the bad ones. Here will shall take a look at some of the known benefits of a grain free dog food diet. Something that has taken Malc himself to a new level of health and is thriving on.
Most, mass produced dog foods contain fillers by way of grain. Rice, wheat and so on. Quite often the cheaper the food the more of it is packed with these grains to keep costs down. It is of course right that dogs in the main can ‘tolerate’ grains but throughout evolution all the way back to the wolf it has never been a main part of any meal. The less grain and better substitutes for carbohydrates can aid the digestive system and health of the dog.
As the dog’s body is not passing as much waste in grain free food the stools become smaller and less frequent. The grain element in food just goes out the other end as waste as the dog’s body does not use it. With our grain free food we use carbs like sweet potato that contains vitamins and fibre that the dog’s body actually does digest. Together with herbs this creates the right amount of fibre. The outcome is the body using more of the food and less waste/stool matter is produced.
Better Coat and Skin
The carbohydrates from grains like wheat and rice can have a negative effect on the quality of a dog’s coat and skin. Think of how our skin is effected if we ate too much junk food all the time. Grain free dog food also helps to reduce irritating itches and rashes. For example our Grain Free Salmon, Trout and sweet potato with Asparagus contains Omegas 3 and 6 fatty acids that is amazing for a dog’s skin and fur.
Grain free dog food has been shown to reduce the amount of foul smelling gasses they love to produce. A big bonus in our book.
Food allergies are becoming more and more common in dogs. Grains like wheat, rice and corn are regarded as a big culprit for this. An allergy could manifest itself as a skin issue or even a behavioural. Grain Free food can negate any intolerance a dog may have to these bad carbs.
The carbohydrates in food filled with grains has a lot of the fibre stripped out in the process of making it. This leaves just bad, starchy grains and carbs that produce sugar highs and lows in your dog. The carbs used in grain free like ourselves are a lot more complex and with the right amount of fibre to allow your dog to maintain its energy levels at a natural amount.
