Grain Free Diets for Your Pets

dog cat healthyI mentioned to you that my older cat Molly was diagnosed with kidney disease and hyperthyroidism. The vet suggested a low protein, low phosphorous diet. Molly is a little finicky  and doesn’t like this diet. I did some research and found food that is lower in protein and lower in phosphorous but it’s grain free and she seems to be doing well. I feed her Wellness cat food and sometimes I will give her Weruva cat food.

Lots of pet food brands add large quantities of grains to disguise the fact that their food is lacking nutritional benefits. The food may have a lot of calories but adding lots of fillers does not make the food nutritious.  A healthily mix of protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is necessary to boost your pets immune system and keep him energized throughout the day. A grain free formula of cat food or dog food could be sign that this food does not have many fillers and is much more nutritious. Always check your labels and check with your vet. I will say that Molly is much better (so far) since I changed her diet.
