There are more gluten-free dog food options on the market now than ever before. These are usually marketed as “grain-free” and focus on meat and other high-protein ingredients. For dogs that have gluten allergies or intolerances, the increase in available options is great. Many companies offer a variety of gluten-free options, so you can choose between chicken, beef, salmon, turkey, and more. Chicken is a common allergy among dogs, so some companies also avoid all poultry ingredients. While gluten-free dog food is pricey, especially when compared to more traditional dog food, most also focus on high-quality ingredients in general, like whole vegetables and fruits rather than fillers and byproducts. Many types of gluten-free dog food contain glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health as well.
