It’s simple really…
Cats and dogs are carnivores. That’s it, that’s the reason that you should go grain free.
Our beloved canine and feline friends were made to eat meat, not grains. Their bodies simply aren’t designed to digest grains, so when they’re forced to it can cause a whole host of problems.
These problems range from itchy skin and dull coats to poor digestive health, obesity, eye, teeth and gum issues. A diet including considerable amounts of grain can also have a detrimental effect on your cat or dog’s energy levels.
This is because grain based foods don’t contain the nutrients that they need to live a healthy and active life.
