Why Grain Free Dog Food?


Any dog food made without wheat, corn, rice and other grains is considered “grain free” or “no grain” dog food. Choosing the best grain free formula for your dog shouldn’t mean compromising on flavor, texture or variety. 


Pet owners may wonder about choosing a grain free vs. grain dog food. Unless your-dog has a veterinarian-diagnosed allergy to grain (which is rare), the choice of a dog food without grain is a matter of personal preference.  


Whether your dog loves wet or dry food—or both—you’re sure to find something they love in one of our grain free diets for dogs.
