One of the most important things you can do for your dog’s health is to choose the right food. Feeding them healthy, nutritious food will give them a longer, happier life with far fewer health complications. There are plenty of different dog foods on the market, and each promises the best for your pet, but none has as many benefits as grain-free dog food.
Here are just some of the health benefits that grain free dog food can provide.
- Healthier Coat
- Better Skin
- Less Gas
- Fewer Allergies
- Great For Pregnant Dogs
1. Healthier Coat
If you have ever noticed that your dog has a thicker, more dull coat than ever before, this may be due to his diet. It can have an almost immediate effect to turn to grain-free dog food. This, experts say, is due in part to the reduction (or rather complete elimination) of grains, and in part to the other healthy ingredients in the food, including those containing plenty of omega fatty acids. The coat of your dog should look brighter and cleaner, which is a symbol of overall health.

2. Better Skin
As well as a dull coat, itchy, irritated, swollen, even inflamed skin may be caused by grain in dog food. If left, it can lead to infection and loss of hair. Yet switching to a grain-free diet can help keep the skin of your dog in excellent condition because, while lower in carbohydrates, grain-free food is full of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that work wonders on the skin.
3. Less Gas
Grains cause a terrible smell of gas that can be extremely uncomfortable for your dog, quite apart from how disgusting it is. It may even be a sign of a few more serious digestive problems. Grain-free dog food reduces the amount of gas ingested by your dog, so it’s easy to tell if there’s a bigger lingering problem.
4. Fewer Allergies
Your dog may be allergic to some of the common dog food products, including the grain itself. One of the food allergy’s main symptoms is itchy skin (this is because the immune system works so hard). If your dog is allergic to corn and grains, cutting them out and putting them on a wheat-free dog food may help clear up the symptoms.
5. Great For Pregnant Dogs
Pregnancy puts a lot of stress on the body of your dog, and they need to be as healthy as possible – they also need to protect their own health and the health of a number of puppies. It’s not going to work just by feeding your dog more food and giving your dog less good quality food like grain-free dry dog food. This will provide them with the necessary nutrients they need, and keep them as healthy as possible, both during and after pregnancy.
