In recent years, gluten-free dog food choices have grown exponentially, similar to the increase in gluten-free options for humans, and many people have chosen to mix gluten-free dog food and dog treats into their dogs’ diets or switch to an entirely gluten-free regimen.

How Common Is Gluten Allergy In Dogs?
For many people, the move to gluten-free is a lifestyle choice. For others, it’s a necessity. Although a gluten allergy in dogs is rare, estimated to affect only about 1% of dogs, it is real, and gluten intolerance is more common among senior dogs (particularly those with sensitive stomachs.) Unfortunately, gluten intolerance is also likely the root cause of dogs becoming picky eaters.

Symptoms Of Gluten Allergy In Dogs
Symptoms of gluten allergy in dogs can include:

  • Gastrointestinal issues (such as vomiting, diarrhea, and gas)
  • Skin or hair issues
  • Itching and scratching
  • Excessive weight gain or loss

Benefits Of A Gluten-Free Diet For Dogs
A gluten-free diet can help dogs feel better, have more energy, maintain a healthy weight, and keep a healthy coat.

Gluten-Free Options For Dogs
Gluten is a protein found in certain grains, including wheat, barley, and rye. In human food and dog food, gluten acts as a “glue,” holding foods together and helping them maintain their shape. As such, it’s more prevalent than you might think! To be sure that the dog food or dog treats you’re choosing don’t contain gluten, you’ll need to carefully read the labels.

At Portland Pet Food Company, we make two tasty dog food toppers and three tasty dog treats that are gluten-free:

The dog food toppers can be used as a topping, mixer, or rotational meal. All of our products are made with healthy, fresh, human-grade whole foods. There are never more than 11 ingredients in any of our dog food toppers or treats, and you’ll never find additives, preservatives, synthetics, byproducts, or rendered foods in PPFC products.
