Why You Should Feed Your Dog Grain Free Food: Why You Should Feed Your Dog Grain Free Food PowerPoint Presentation: The fact is that nowadays we can choose from hundreds if not thousands of different types of dog foods. Some of them are specifically formulated for smaller or larger breeds, some of them are specifically formulated for different stages of life, some of them are more expensive, some of them are less expensive. The point that I'm trying to make is that there are a lot of products to choose from and if you don't believe me go to Amazon or eBay and do a simple search for dog foods. In a split second you will get thousands of results. PowerPoint Presentation: While there are a lot of pet foods to choose from, the fact is that not all dog foods are created equal and majority of the dog foods in the market can do more harm than good. Let me explain. Nowadays, companies producing dog food use a lot of fillers and bulking agents to increase the volume of the product produce. Most of the type such bulking agents are grains that come in a wide range of forms: wheat, barley, rye, oats and etc. While grains are great for us, humans, the fact is that for dogs they can cause a lot of trouble. PowerPoint Presentation: You see, you need to look at this from an evolutionary point of view. Cultivation of grains is a recent development and grains became a part of our diet only about ten thousand years ago. As humans we have embraced grains and they became a part of our everyday diets. In addition to this, as we began living with dogs, we have began giving and adding various forms of grains to our dog's diets, but the fact is that our dog's digestive systems are not evolved to process grains. PowerPoint Presentation: Dog's have always been carnivores, not herbivores and their digestive systems have not evolved to process grains properly. This, in effect, now often leads to various forms of digestive problems, allergies and etc. Most of the pet foods in the market today are packed with grains and this is not good. PowerPoint Presentation: If you want to make sure that your dog does not suffer from allergic reactions, if you want to make sure that your dog's digestive system runs smoothly and efficiently you should feed your dog grain free dog foods. Yes, I know that grain free foods can be more expensive than other products in the market, but the fact is that in the long term they are worth it.
