Feeding Your Pet Grain Free Food

Health and Wellbeing


Diet and Nutrition


Pet parents are getting smarter about their pets food, and an impressive number have boarded the grain-free train since last year. Fortunately, pet food companies are responding to this positive trend and there are more high-quality grain-free foods available than ever before.

In addition to grain-free diets, formulas with multiple and unique protein sources have also become more popular. Companies are using proteins such as chicken, lamb, beef, duck, turkey, pheasant, venison, bison, salmon, whitefish, herring, pork, or rabbit.

Many companies are also promoting the ‘rotation diet’ concept, which encourages pet owners to switch between their formulas. This provides dogs with a healthy balance of vitamins, amino acids, and other nutrients, and also potentially reduces the risk of developing food-related allergies. Switching between formulas can also help eliminate pickiness in fussy eaters.

Here are a few of the best grain-free, multiple protein dry diets available today.
