Should My Dog Eat Grain Free?

But Why Should I Care?
That’s a great question, we’re glad you asked!! A grain free diet is often recommended for canines, as it is more nutritious and closer to a dog’s natural diet. Unfortunately, dog foods are usually made with low-quality grains such as corn and cereal, which are used as cheap fillers. These grains lack nutritional value and moreover, dogs cannot break down the grains too easily which causes them to have digestive and even allergic issues.
A grain free diet is particularly essential for brachycephalic breeds (flat-faced like Henry & Penny!), since they are more prone to have sensitivities to allergies and digestive complications. However, it is an advantage for any dog, regardless of shape, size or snout type!
