Best Grain Free Wet Dog Foods

What’s the Best
Grain-Free Wet Dog Food?

The best grain free wet dog foods are likely to contain more protein than their grain-based counterparts.

Which is not necessarily a good thing.

That’s because…

Unlike animal protein…

Plant-based protein ingredients (like legumes) tend to be deficient in some essential amino acids.

Which can upset the delicate nutrient balance of a dog food.

And…

Why we recommend grain-free dog foods that contain a sensible amount of plant-based protein…

And where meat remains the dominant source of protein in their recipes.
