Just like their ancestor, the wolf, our dogs are carnivores. They are biologically designed to eat a meat-based diet. But because meat is much more costly than grains and fillers, most pet parents opt for the more affordable option...kibble.
Many health conscious pet parents have chosen to feed their fur babies a grain-free diet, as the high carbohydrate content of most kibbles is anything but healthy for dogs. But what most people fail to realize is that the term "grain free" is simply a marketing ploy used by the pet food industry.
While these foods may technically be grain free, those grains have been replaced with other starches like lentils and potatoes, but most rely on peas...starches that dogs can't digest effectively.
