Opting for grain-free dog food? Make sure it’s nutritionally complete
Your dog’s diet is critical to their overall health and wellbeing. If your dog’s food isn’t satisfying their nutritional demands, they simply won’t thrive - and may even become poorly down the line.
What does my dog actually need?
So what does a well-balanced dog diet actually look like, you ask?
Well, veterinary experts claim that for optimum canine health, dogs need a suitable amount of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and essential fatty acids - all of which play an important function in maintaining a healthy and happy dog.
Essential amino acids, for example, you’ll find in proteins, and essential fatty acids, from healthy fats - of course. The quantities they need, just like for us humans, will depend of a range of factors, such as the size of your dog and their stage of life i.e. if they’re a puppy, or a senior dog.
Is grain-free good or bad?
There’s a lot of different opinions on whether grains are harmful to a dog’s digestive system, while some have also claimed a grain-free diet isn’t a substantial one.
Of course, some dogs simply suffer from intolerances - leaving owners with very little choice than to opt for gluten or grain-free.
