Grain free diets have become popular not only among people, but also their pets! Any pet food made without ingredients like wheat, corn, rice, oats, barley, and other grains is considered to be “grain-free.” The many benefits of this type of diet is the reason The Hungry Puppy carries brands like Nutrisource, Triumph, Canidae, Stella & Chewy’s, Merrick, Natural Balance, Holistic Select, Blue Buffalo, Whole Earth, and others that provide a wide selection of grain free food and treat options!
While you should consult your veterinarian before switching your dog to a grain free diet, there are many benefits that can come of this! Carbohydrates and grains should already make up a smaller part of your dog, cat, or companion’s daily meals. Therefore, the elimination of grains allows for more room to incorporate protein and animal fats. This not only makes the food much more digestible, but provides necessary nutrients to build strong, lean muscle and more energy. Increased omega fatty acids that make up for the elimination of grains lead to shinier, softer coats and healthier skin. Not to mention, corn and wheat are known to cause excess gas. Without such ingredients, your pet will have reduced flatulence and smaller, firmer stools. Another advantage of grain free foods is that they have gained the reputation of being great for sensitive dogs with allergies, as gluten and corn are common pet allergies. Luckily, The Hungry Puppy has all the products you need to reap these benefits. Our grain free dry and wet food options use highly palatable, tasty flavors like chicken, turkey, duck, bison, salmon, lamb, sweet potato, beef, kangoo, squid, etc - so your companion won’t even know what’s missing!
