Why Grain Free?

Here at Mummy’s Delight we are dedicated to making all of our pet food without any added grain, meaning that all of our dishes are completely grain free….But why?

To fully understand, we need to go back to our fur babies’ ancestral diet as a carnivore. Dogs and cats were simply born to eat meats, never grains. It was only since World War II, that inexpensive fillers such as corn, barley and wheat were added to pet food to create bulk and keep costs low. Although breeds of our fur babies have evolved over the years, their digestive systems haven’t and still remain pretty primitive and have little natural digestive support to break down cereal grains. So what does this mean for our beloved fur babies? Being unable to digest grains such as corn, barley and wheat can cause a whole host of problems ranging from itchy skin, dull coats, bowel inflammation disorders, obesity, eye, teeth and gum problems, joint and mobility problems and just an overall lack of energy, which absolutely no pet parent wants for their fur baby. In fact, in a recent survey carried out by the British Veterinary Association, it was estimated that over 70% of non-routine appointments were for digestive issues and skin complaints, mainly caused by diet.

What’s more, many dogs and cats can also be allergic to particular grains that are found in their foods. Gluten is not only a common allergen for our human friends; it can also be one for our furry friends too. Grains such as rice, corn and wheat all contain gluten which can cause bad reactions in many dogs and cats. Some of the signs that your fur baby is experiencing a reaction to the grain include upset tummies, constipation and diarrhoea, skin and coat irritation, ear infections and a wide of other health issues. Of course, if your fur baby is experiencing any of these symptoms, we at Mummy’s Delight, will always urge you to contact your vet first but often, a grain free diet can certainly help to alleviate such symptoms if they do persist. Even those fur babies without allergies can still benefit from a diet that has been designed specifically to meet their nutritional needs.
