Dogs develop food allergies for a period of time. Gluten intolerance affects all breeds of dogs. Some breeds may have celiac disease. Gluten accounts for about 80% of the protein in wheat. Dog owners often do not consider wheat allergies, even if the gluten and lectin found in wheat can cause serious health problems.
Note fillers, including wheat grain, gluten, barley, rye, corn, and contaminated oats. Responsible dog owners read the list of ingredients printed on the dog food package and knew that they were feeding the food of their beloved pet.
List of no ingredients is artificial flavors and preservatives. Names are sometimes not easy to identify. Some dog food companies try to hide or disguise these ingredients on the label. Learn about the names of artificial flavors and preservatives so you can stay away from brands that use No List ingredients.
Look for the real ingredients, the names you can pronounce – salmon and beef. Your dog will like this too! Your dog appreciates the taste and taste like you. For example, some dogs like beef and others like chicken. Don't waste your money and your dog's taste buds on substandard foods that contain a lot of by-products and fillers. There are also antibiotic-free meats such as turkey, venison and bison that do not contain hormones. Try organic dog-friendly vegetables like sweet potatoes.
Once you've decided on a grain-free food that contains all the vitamins and minerals, no gluten and wheat grains, it's time to start moving from old food to new food. For about a week, mix old dog food with new dog food and gradually reduce the amount of old food to new food until you only fill your dog bowl with new food.
When you feed a healthier dog food, it may cost more at first. However, you will get more nutrients available, which will make your dog more full, and in the long run, your dog will eat less, thus reducing the cost of food. Not to mention saving veterinary bills. You may want to investigate the recall of a dog food manufacturer. Some people have fewer recalls than others.
Buy pet food from reputable dealers rather than large stores. You will get better service and a more reputable manufacturer. In addition, employees will be better informed and able to help you make choices.
