One of the Worst Premium Food Purchases You Could Make for Your Pet-by Dr. Karen Shaw Becker

Story at-a-glance

  • Grain-free kibble has advanced from a niche market to a mainstream pet food; 44 percent of dry dog foods and 47 percent of dry cat foods sold in the U.S. are grain-free
  • Since the formation of kibble requires a starchy ingredient, pet food producers have substituted carbohydrates for grains, while keeping pet parents in the dark about the carb content of their formulas
  • Many grain-free dry pet foods are loaded with carbs, making the sugar content higher than in non-grain-free formulas
  • Carbs convert to sugar in your pet’s body; high-carbohydrate diets have created an epidemic of sugar-related diseases in today’s dogs and cats
  • Your best bet to keep your pet healthy is to stop feeding all dry food, and replace it with a nutritionally balanced, species-appropriate diet
