Benefits Of A Gluten-Free Diet In Dogs

In the past, the diet of wild dogs did not contain grains. Dogs are primarily carnivores, thus their nutritional needs have barely changed even when they have become domesticated. When placed on a gluten-rich diet, dogs can suffer from digestive problems when delicate balance of their gastrointestinal tract is disturbed. These can eventually lead to manifestation of specific problems that can include almost all the major systems of the body. Gluten consumption has been continually implicated in several health issues ranging from skin allergies to joint problems to digestive problems and malnutrition. Dogs suffering from chronic cases of digestive problems as a result of gluten consumption do well after being switched to a gluten-free diet. When switching your pet’s food to a new one, be sure to do it gradually, starting with  25%:75% (gluten free dog food:regular dog food) mixture and slowly increasing the gluten-free dog food until your pet’s diet is 100% gluten-free.  

Your pet’s diet can have a significant effect on your pet’s health and well-being, thus you should consult your vet Norwalk, CA before making any changes in your pet’s diet. For more information visit the given link- http://downeyvet.com/
