Benefits of grain free dog food

Grain is difficult for dogs to digest. Simply put, their gastrointestinal system is not designed for it. A big part of the problem is that grains contain complex carbohydrates. The fibers in grain do not get digested and will ferment in your dog’s gut instead. The results of this include can include:

  • Flatulence
  • Diarrhea
  • Skin rashes
  • Bowel inflammation
  • Ear infections
  • Low energy level
  • Food allergies
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes

The main benefit of grain-free dog food and treats are that it is easier for your dog to digest. Along with treating and preventing the issues above, increasing your dog’s protein intake delivers benefits like:

  • Increased energy
  • A reduction in food intake
  • Reduced stool quantity (more of the food is used, less passed out as waste)
  • A shinier coat
  • Improved breath

Keep in mind that each dog has its own unique dietary needs, which means that a grain-free diet may not be the right option in all cases. For example, a grain-free diet may not be appropriate for sedentary dogs as it may cause excessive weight gain.
