Switch your dog to grain-free dry dog food gradually, mixing in increasing amounts of the new food over time. Start by feeding 75% of the old food and 25% of the new food for the first few days, then increase to a 50-50 ratio for the next two or three days. Then, proceed to feeding 75% of the new food for a few days, graduating to 100% after about a week or so. This gradual transition will be easier on your dog's digestive system and help ensure he doesn't refuse the new grain-free dry food formula.
Some of the best ingredients to look for in grain-free dry dog food include real meats, whole fruits and vegetables. Look for whole food ingredients that have been minimally processed, and try to avoid formulas that contain fillers, meat meals and artificial ingredients. Your vet may be able to recommend some good grain-free dry dog formulas or brands. You can also use the product filters on our site to find just the right grain-free dry dog food for your pup.
Grain-free dry dog foods can be good for dogs, especially those with certain sensitivities and those who are prone to weight gain. However, not all grain-free dry dog foods are created equal. Some may have high levels of carbs that can cause weight gain even if they are grain-free. There is also a concern that feeding an entirely grain-free diet may be linked with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in some dogs. Talk to your vet about the best diet for your pup and see if feeding your dog grain-free dry foods might be a good choice.
