Why Grain-free is the Best Dog Food for Allergies
What is grain-free dog food?
The grain-free diet is a type of 'elimination diet'. It's a way of removing grains from your dog's diet whilst introducing them to a novel protein source.
What are the benefits of grain-free dog food?
- Probiotics to help support digestion - helps produce smaller, firmer stools
- Helps promote healthy skin and coat condition
- No added artificial flavours, colours and preservatives
- Naturally stabilised/preserved
- Made with freshly prepared high-quality protein
- Complete and balanced for puppies/growing dogs
- Nucleotides to help support growth and development.
Many hybrid dogs are intolerant to grains. Potatoes are an excellent alternative and provide plenty of nutrients. They taste delicious and reduce the likelihood of your dog experiencing any skin irritation or hot spots.
Potatoes are a complex carbohydrate. They provide slow-releasing energy that keeps your dog fuller for longer. In our grain-free dry dog food, we've chosen sweet potato to add extra flavour.
As a fantastic grain-free dog food alternative, cooked potatoes are also great if your dog has an upset stomach. If your dog is sick from poisonous foods like chocolate, or cheese (if they're lactose intolerant), bland foods like boiled eggs or potatoes can help settle their stomach.
Since rice isn't particularly nutritious, even if your dog doesn't have an allergic reaction to grains, they can still enjoy grain-free recipes. We have various meat protein options - from venison or Angus Beef to salmon and potato dog food.
Few dogs are allergic to potatoes, so grain-free food is good for dogs of all breeds. Here at Designer Dog Foods, we've specialised in finding high-quality recipes that are ideal for dogs like Yorkipoos, Labradoodles and Sheepadoodles.
If signs of food intolerance subside after changing to a grain-free recipe, it was most likely the grains and/or the previous protein source that was part of the problem.
For many doodles, chicken intolerance is the problem. Therefore, in all our products, we have no added chicken to combat this chicken allergy in dogs.
Often it's only a mild reaction, however, if there are alternatives out there available, why make your dog put up with the discomfort?
We've found that many cross-breed dogs - from Australian Cobberdogs to Cockapoos and Goldendoodles have experienced some of these dog food allergy symptoms unnecessarily.
That's why we've chosen to focus specifically on helping hybrid dogs. Changing your dog's food is so simple and can have a massive positive effect on your dog's overall wellbeing.
