They can be! It all depends on your dog’s specific needs and blend. We include easy to digest grains in some of our blends for good reasons. Grains can be a good source of nutrients such as protein, fats, and vitamins/minerals. They can also provide a variety of carbohydrates, some of which serve as energy sources.
A good diet will provide some energy that can be used quickly by the body (carbohydrates), balanced by longer-term energy (fats). This helps keep a dog’s blood glucose stable and energy levels stable. Grains also help to keep the GI tract healthy, by providing fiber to firm up feces and clean the GI tract.
However, we also know that some pups have sensitives to grains, so just let us know and we’ll be sure to leave them out of your Puppo blend.
