What is the best grain free dog food?
Grain free dog food has become exceptionally popular in recent years, moving in tandem with the rise in popularity of grain and gluten-free diets for us humans. The grain free pet food industry is not only growing, but developing, at a rapid rate. The popularity of grainless diets has led to an unprecedented explosion of the number of options available. The grain free movement is also evolving to encompass concurrent 'real food', 'ancestral', 'freeze dried' and 'raw' movements.
So, with an ever-growing number of grain free diets gracing the shelves (or in our case, the web pages!), how do we navigate what seems like a simple question: What is the best grain free dog food?
Our top picks…
|Black Hawk Puppy Ocean Fish||If you have a puppy/dog with skin allergies (common with staffy breeds) then this is a great product! Our pup had irritated skin and as soon as we started him in this brand the skin irritations went away. - JADE|
|Instinctive Bite Chicken and Sweet Potato||Our dog had digesting problems from a very early age. Everything got much better as soon as we switched to Instinctive Bite Grain free. She is now a happy dog and loves her food. I would recommend this brand food to any dog owner. - URSULA|
|Savourlife Kangaroo||Fantastic, within a week of changing brands I’ve noticed a huge change in my dogs. Happier and more active, started behaving like overgrown puppies! - TINA|
|Ivory Coat Ocean Fish||We were recommended to use the Ivory Coat Ocean Fish and our girl has never had an allergy again. Her coat is beautiful and shiny and we regularly have compliments on what a great condition she is in. - FIONA|
|Meals for Mutts Grain Free Duck and Turkey||Very popular at our house. I have two little fluffies who thoroughly enjoy their breakfast. Also use them as treats, when I run out of home made chicken jerky! - RUTH|
Is grain free dog food good for dogs?
This is a complicated question, but ultimately the short answer is: yes! Gone are the days when 'grain free' meant 'hyper holistic' and unbalanced nutritionally. Nowadays, most premium grain free dog foods are complete and balanced in accordance with international feeding guidelines. Furthermore, they actually tend to be very high in quality when compared to many cheap grain-based recipes, with most surpassing supermarket brands and hitting the premium bracket due to their ingredients.
I heard that dogs can't digest grains properly - is that true?
There's a lot to be said on this subject, and you can read more about it in Dr Kim's comprehensive guide to grain free dog food. In short, while your poodle's distant relative may be the wolf, their digestive system has undoubtedly changed a lot over tens of thousands of years!
