Grain-free dog food recommendation and advice

An associate at "Especially For Pets" referred me to DogFoodAnalysis.com when educating me about the dry food brands they had in store

From the DogFoodAnalysis "About Us" page:

Why does this site exist?
"Because commercial pet food is, historically and on average, so incredibly awful ... Many pet foods are made up mostly of grain fragments (the left overs from the human food industry), with a small amount of meat thrown in and the whole thing coated with recycled used (and frequently carcinogenic) fats to make it palatable to our pets...Why are we feeding carnivores on grains anyway?"
comment One tip: go in a few pet stores and ask if they have any sample bags, they almost always do. Just make sure to provide the new food on the side of your dog's normal food, so as not to upset his/her stomach! - marion 6 years, 7 months ago

Recommended grain-free dog food

Especially For Pets has a good (wet) Innova EVO dog food which you can use as a change of pace for you dog. My dog loves the "95% Beef" and "95% Chicken & Turkey" flavors.
comment Yeah, our dog loves the Evo wet food too. We also cycle in the deliciously named Merrick canned foods. They have such appetizing names: Grammy's Pot Pie, Easter Brunch, Cowboy Cookout, Autumn Leaf't Overs, Harvest Moon... - Sven 6 years, 5 months ago

What are the Benefits of Going Grain Free?

While grains are not necessarily a "bad" ingredient in dog foods, there is some evidence that certain dogs can be more sensitive to the grain ingredients and would benefit from being fed dog foods that are made with non-grain carbohydrates sources.

If your beloved dog was still living in the wild, he would not be eating many carbohydrates at all. His diet would consists mostly of proteins. He would, however, eat some plant matter, mostly because he would be eating animals that ate plant matter. This component is undoubtedly an important part of his diet, but he can obtain it other ways. These grains should definitely not be the staple of a healthy dog diet, but they are if you feed him popular commercial brands.

Dogs can't very sufficiently digest corn or wheat, both of which are common staples of cheap commercial dog foods. These grains simply turns into sugar in your dog's blood, and are roughly the equivalent of you eating fast food for every meal!

In addition, many dogs experience grain allergies. If this is the case, your dog may suffer from frequent ear infections and lick himself excessively, especially on the tops of his paws. These dogs can benefit significantly from a grain free diet since these dog formulas remove the allergens that are causing their uncomfort.
