Why Feed Grain Free Dog Food
When you eat well, you feel well. The same is true for our canine friends.
Chances are you know at least one person who has gone gluten or grain free. But what about our best furry friends?
A Brief History of Grain-Free Dog Food
Years before dog food was dished up from a bag into cute doggie dishes, dogs would hunt and capture raw, protein-rich meals.
Just like the theory behind the human Paleo Diets, protein-based, grain-free dog foods more closely mimic a dog's natural or “ancestral” diet as a carnivore.
With the introduction of mass-produced dog food kibble made available around the 1940's, inexpensive fillers like corn, wheat and barley were added to dog food to create bulk and keep costs down.
All these years later, commercial dog foods still list corn or wheat as one of the main ingredients.
The canine digestive system is still fairly primitive. Dogs have little natural digestive support to break down and metabolize complex carbohydrates and cereal grains so most of the fibers and grains remain somewhat undigested within the dog's digestive system relying mainly on fermentation to break them down. Over a long period of time, this type of digestion may damage the lining of the digestive system, resulting in bowel inflammation disorders, food sensitivities, food allergies, leaky gut and obesity.
So with the above in mind, doesn't it make sense to feed your best furry friend a grain free diet?
