Benefits of a Grain-Free Diet for Your Dog

These three have certainly been through their bouts of ear infections and tummy troubles over the years. It wasn't until we started to take a closer look at their diets that we finally conquered them both.

We have been treating Miley and Maggie's ear infections since they were little pups and being new dog owners we really didn't understand how their diet effected their health. When we took them home, we kept them on the food that they were given as puppies and eventually graduated them to adult food.

Once we learned how to read the food labels and how certain ingredients may not be beneficial for all dogs we started to narrow down what was causing these infections to reappear several times a year. We first eliminated all corn, wheat and soy from their diet and noticed a big difference in their fur, skin, ears and digestion.

Grain-Free Benefits

  • Many grain-free dog foods contain more protein than carbs which helps with digestion.
  • May reduce allergies
  • More Energy
  • Healthier Skin
  • Shinier Coat
  • Helps with Shedding
  • Better Breath
  • Fewer and Smaller Stools
A few years ago when grain-free dog food became more popular and available more widely is when we decided to make the switch and it has been the best decision we have made. Not only have the Goldens had zero ear infections but their ears are so clean and the red is completely gone. Bruin has suffered with digestion issues so putting him on a grain-free diet has helped with his gastrointestinal health as well. One of our favorite brands we have turned to for grain-free dog food is Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Chicken Soup for the Soul is made with love in the USA and developed by a family-owned and operated company. They use whole ingredients only with protein at the top of the list and no by-product meals. Just as important, there is no corn, wheat or soy and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Miley just turned 10 years old this month so it's so important to make sure she is getting the nutrients she needs in her golden years. She loves the Chicken, Turkey, Pea and Sweet Potato flavor and I love that real chicken is the first ingredient on this list. Having a good quality protein source like chicken and turkey are so beneficial in maintaining her muscle tone.
Chicken Soup for the Soul grain-free dog food also contains vitamin and mineral sources like pea and sweet potato and natural Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids which is great for keeping their Golden coats and skin in tip-top shape. It also contains dried chicory root which is a prebiotic fiber source which helps maintain their gastrointestinal health.
