George isn’t our first dog. He’s our third and, over time, we have learnt more about what our dogs ate.
With Harry, he had bad knees and so some reduced mobility. As a result, he ended up on a lower fat diet – still kibble but something a little healthier for him.
Ted was a very different kettle of fish. Behaviour issues meant he had to be on a low protein diet to reduce his energy levels. This worked but, ultimately, he still ended up being re-homed because of his aggression towards females.
Along comes George who is lovely.
A really good dog with no issues until, as it turns out, he develops a wheat allergy.
We thought he had a bug and took him to the vets but after his symptoms went away (on a special diet for a few days) he went back on his old food and within a few hours he is ill again.
Fortunately, we had already ordered some Laughing Dog Food Wheat Free kibble which has helped out after we weaned him over to it. He is now, 🤞🏻, fine and loves his food.
It’s just something to consider. You hear about humans with allergies but they are there for dogs too.
Dogs, given the chance, WILL eat anything wether it is bad for them or not but just because they can doesn’t mean they should.
