Have you ever wondered what the difference is between wheat free and grain free dog foods? Our nutritionists have put together a little industry insight to help you and your dog on your foody journey...
At Laughing Dog we are able to produce both wheat free and grain & gluten free dog food ranges. Both are enjoyed by all dogs – not just those with a specific need for wheat or grain free diets. But do you know what the difference is between our grain free dog food and wheat free dog food? With both terms being used frequently in the dog food (and human food!) industry, it can be a confusing area to understand.
Often consumers are not aware that there are other grains to wheat. While wheat free completes and treats are free of wheat gluten, they can still contain alternative grains like barley or oats, which also contain gluten. To be completely grain and gluten free, however, it means that a food must be free from all cereals. For example, no barley, maize, oats, rice or wheat. Our Naturally Complete Grain Free dog food range and grain free treats are therefore free of wheat gluten, gluten and grains.
“perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies…”
Our Naturally Complete Grain Free dog food recipes all use sweet potato as a base, which is an easily digestible source of slow release energy and of course contains no wheat gluten or gluten. It is perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies, those with cereal intolerances and our four-legged friends with a specific need to avoid grains, or purely if you would just prefer to feed your dog a grain free diet.
Grain free can have really positive effects for dogs who have long suffered from intolerances or adverse reactions due to not eliminating potential causes through feeding. Yet it certainly isn’t just a dog food diet adopted by owners looking to help their dogs’ intestinal issues, but also a diet change and preference for pet parents wanting to completely remove gluten and cereals from their dogs’ diets – just as they may have done with their own eating habits.
And our Laughing Dog range of gently oven-baked wheat free and grain free treats (from our Cheesy Bites to Fruity Paws and Sleep Tights) help to protect the natural goodness of their wholesome ingredients! This creates a deliciously tasty and crunchy treat, perfect for helping to keep teeth clean and breath fresh, and even the fussiest of dogs love their baked taste!
