A quick stroll through the dog section of the Pet dog supplies food store is all you need to see just how many different kinds of dog food exist.

In truth, all dog foods are not created equal, and the same applies to dog treats.
Dogs require a diet rich in protein to support their lean muscle mass with plenty of healthy fats as a concentrated source of energy. Unlike humans, dogs do not have specific needs for carbohydrates in their diet. In fact, some pet nutrition experts say that carbohydrates have no place in the canine diet. Many veterinarians say, however, that carbohydrates are fine for dogs as long as they come from digestible sources. Though some dogs can tolerate whole grains, grain-free options like legumes, beans, and starchy vegetables are typically easier to digest.
If you prefer to feed your dog a grain-free diet, you’ll need to stock up on grain-free dog treats as well as grain-free dog food.
