Why we switched our dogs to a grain free diet with Purina Pro plan

The potential benefits of switching your pup(s) to a grain free diet

Having three dogs and finding the right food for all of them has definitely been a journey in itself! For the longest time we had thought their allergies were because of their environment. It didn’t even cross our minds that it could have to do with the diet they were on. Below are a few of the symptoms we saw in all three of our dogs.

  • Inflamed skin
  • Ithiness
  • Dry flaky skin
  • Constantly licking their paws
  • Redness on their tummies
  • Flaky skin

When we moved to Los Angeles the allergies became worse. We went to three different vets and they all told us it was either fleas or a sever pollen allergy. No one was looking at their diet.

It wasn’t until I started researching online and finding other owners going through the same thing. We knew right away that they were allergic to Grain.We made the switch to Grain Free instantly.

Our dogs were already on a Purina® Pro Plan® diet so we knew we wanted to stay with Purina when we selected a grain free variety. If you are making the switch as well and want to learn more about your options head to Purina University here. If you are unsure of which plan your dog needs you can use Purina’s my plan tool here!
