Wheat is just one of a number of different cereals. The most common cereals include maize, barley, oats and wheat. Wheat free dog food means that it may contain other cereals, but does not contain any added wheat (or wheat gluten).
Barley and oats, both sourced from our family farm in Lincolnshire, have low GI (glycaemic index) values which mean they can help to stabilise blood sugar levels and as a result give that fuller for longer feeling. Importantly, neither barley nor oats contain any wheat gluten, which can often be the common cause of allergies in dogs.
Grain free dog food means that the product contains no added grains (also known as cereals) – therefore it does not contain any cereals such as barley, wheat, maize, rice or oats. Our Gloriously Grain Free dog foods and our Naturally Complete dog foods use potato and/or sweet potato as a base, which is an easily digestible source of slow release energy and contains no gluten. It is perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies, dogs that have adverse reactions to cereals and a specific need to avoid grains, or simply if you would just prefer to feed your dog a grain free diet.
Our range Naturally Complete grain free dog foods, our oven-baked Gloriously Grain Free dry completes, grain free dog treats and our Gloriously Grain Free wet complete range of dog foods are enjoyed by all dogs looking for naturally wholesome and delicious foods – not just those with a specific need for a grain free diet.
While our entire range of wheat free and grain free complete dog foods are hypoallergenic and therefore suitable for dogs that have adverse reactions to these ingredients, it can also be fed as a nutritious and delicious diet for those dogs with no specific dietary complaints or requirements.
All our recipes are created with the greatest of care – nothing unnecessary is added to the mixing bowl; just simple ingredients for delicious and wholesome nourishment.
This means that all of our meat sources e.g. lamb in the Wonderfully Wheat Free Lamb is from that one species i.e. lamb. Therefore in our single species recipes you will never find that it has meat from one animal e.g. lamb, and an oil from another e.g. chicken. It would only ever be from the same protein source. That is why Laughing Dog food can be beneficial for dogs with specific adverse reactions as by introducing what is known as an ‘elimination diet’, you can isolate protein sources and can help to eliminate any foods which may cause a reaction in your dog.
Our Naturally 5 range of completes can be even more beneficial to elimination diets as these special completes are only made with 5 simple ingredients.
Hypoallergenic dog food is food that is formulated for one of three reasons: to include a limited number of ingredients, to include new and novel ingredients which dogs may be less sensitive to, or as part of a prescription or veterinary diet. Dogs can suffer from adverse reactions to certain foods such as wheat, maize, dairy, soya. It is uncommon for dogs to naturally be allergic to these ingredients and is more often the result of their common use within many dog foods which dogs then become more frequently exposed to which causes these reactions. These allergies can not only cause problems internally, but also externally in the form of itchy skin and ears.
All of the Laughing Dog food wet and dry complete dog food ranges are hypoallergenic, with each ingredient being carefully selected by our nutritionists for its specific benefit. Our range of complete dog foods contains no added wheat, dairy or soya and the full range is made with GM free ingredients. This is the same for our slowly oven-baked treats and mixer meals apart from our Traditional Mixer Meal in the Adult and Puppy & Small dog variations which does contain wheat.
Laughing Dog complete dog foods avoids corn and wheat, and alternative meat proteins are used in our products; for example duck and lamb, which are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. By using single source meat proteins in our Wonderfully Wheat Free dog food recipes it helps reduce the number of variables being added into the diet.
Our new limited ingredient range of dog food, Naturally 5, is made with just 5 simple and nourishing ingredients and is naturally free of wheat, wheat gluten, soya and dairy.
Our new Naturally Complete range of dog foods is made with carefully selected ingredients to ensure for a complete and balanced meal with a clean label. This range of dog food is formulated free from grains, wheat, gluten, soya and dairy.
Laughing Dog complete food is easily digestible, has no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, contains low allergy proteins and is wheat gluten free. It also contains essential antioxidants such as vitamin C and E to help maintain the health of the dog along as well as many more goodies to help your dog stay full of vitality (please see our ingredients list on each product page).
While all our dog treats are hypoallergenic, they are also perfectly fine for dogs that do not need to avoid certain ingredients.
Here at Laughing Dog we recommend gradually moving your dog over from what you currently feed to one of our complete dog foods. Some dogs are more tolerant to change than others but as a guideline we would recommend that you start to mix in a small amount of Laughing Dog with your dog’s current food, then gradually increase it over the course of a week until you are feeding it 100% Laughing Dog.
All of our wheat free and grain free dog food comes with an on pack feeding guideline which takes into consideration the size of your dog. Feeding requirements can vary due to age, breed and lifestyle of your dog, so please keep in mind that this information is simply to use as a guideline. You can also find this information on each of our product pages under the ‘feed guide’ tab. If you have any questions, please contact us on 0800 0988057 and our nutritionists will be happy to advise.
All our Laughing Dog treats packets come with a suggested feeding guide on the side of the bag.
Absolutely! Unlike most dog food brands in the UK, Laughing Dog makes all of its dry dog food, treats and mixer meals right here on the family farm. We even use many of our own ingredients!
Here at Laughing Dog we pride ourselves on ensuring that all of our ingredients are carefully sourced right here on our family farm. If we cannot use our own ingredients (for example, our own farm-grown oats and barley go into our wheat free dog foods and dog treats), we source the ingredients ourselves from approved suppliers only; we meet the British Retail Consortium standards (BRC for short; this is a global standard of food safety and quality).
Not all of our ingredients are free range (the supply of free range ingredients in the UK does not meet the demand for it in the pet food industry) but we use only the highest quality of ingredients. As much as possible we try to use British; however, if this is not possible we source our high quality chicken, duck, beef, lamb, salmon and white fish from Europe. All fresh ingredients e.g. fresh chicken/lamb/salmon and meals that we use are produced from animals, birds and fish that have been passed as fit for human consumption and meet our ethical sourcing guidelines.
Laughing Dog adheres to FEDIAF (The European Pet Food Industry) guidelines.
Unlike many dog food brands in the UK, we make all our dry food ourselves. All our food, treats and mixers are made here on the family farm.
What are meals?
At Laughing Dog many of our dog food recipes are single species, e.g. our Naturally 5 chicken dog food complete is just chicken meal and chicken oil; you wouldn’t therefore find any lamb or beef in the mixing bowl. We only use meals which are made of one species so we and our customers know exactly what is going into the mixing bowl.
The meals we use are single species and are produced from animals, birds and fish that have been passed as fit for human consumption and meet our ethical sourcing guidelines. They include meat, ligaments, bone – only the tasty (and safe) parts a dog would naturally eat. Meals are a very important source of protein, calcium and phosphorous.
We do not use any dry mixed meat meal which is meat and bones made from mixed species e.g. pork, beef, lamb, chicken.
Either way – whether you use fresh meat and/or a meal, combined in the right quantities with other key essential ingredients, it will provide a complete and balanced meal.
The dry meals we use are naturally preserved which we believe is best. It is a convenient and safe way for these materials to be used in pet foods and naturally in the wild dogs crunch bones and eat the innards as these are the tastiest parts. We believe that our recipes should reflect this. But it is true to say we are using parts of the animal we wouldn’t necessarily eat as humans – this is also really important for the planet – we know there’s only a limited amount of land that’s available for agriculture and finding sustainable protein sources is becoming more of a hot topic in the dog food industry.
