Gluten Free dog food

Finding gluten free dog food isn't hard to do.

Today, it is widely available for your pet pretty much at every pet store around the world.

Even purchasing online is very popular and easy to do. My guess is, that if you are reading this page, your pup has a gluten sensitivity. Correct?

Whether you are looking into this for your pet sensitivity or just a change of pace, it is important to find the right one.

That really leads to a couple of questions for you considering your gluten free pup. 

Is it worth buying the cheap stuff that says it's "gluten free"?


Should you still do your homework when choosing what to buy?

Well, of course the answer to that would be the latter, that is if we really want what is best for our pup. Our pets can suffer seriously from the very same things we humans suffer from.

The important thing to distinguish before purchasing a gluten free dog food is that there is a difference between "Gluten Free" and "Wheat Free". To find out the difference, Click Here.

Many dog foods are made wheat free as opposed to gluten free and if you purchase the wrong one, it can leave your little pooch feeling lousy in the long run - the very thing you are trying to avoid.

Now, if you have read any of my other pages, you will know that I tell you to read your labels very carefully! 

That is no different when choosing gluten free dog food. 

How do you know that you have a good quality GF Dog food?

Easy answer is to search for "impostors" such as meal substitutes,  protein residue and corn gluten meal...the first ingredients that you see should be ingredients that are whole protein, grain or vegetables.

Anything else is Garbage.

Usually if you are paying less than $10 per bag, you are paying for Garbage because quality costs.

Don't be fooled. If you pay less for it now, you will pay more for it a sick puppy. 

Below, you will find a list to help you make your shopping trip to the store or online easier.
