Q. Looking for a dog food with no grains, no sugars and no yeast for a 6 month old Pit Bull pup with grain and yeast allergies. Any recommendations?

Answered By

A. Many high end brands such as Taste of the Wild and others found at premium pet stores may have the options you need in a dog food. There are also some canned dog foods available that are 95% meat and are a meat source only with added vitamins and minerals and no extra ingredients. These are best as an additive, but can be used as a longer term pet food with supplementation or monitoring from your vet for any signs of ill health.

Costco also carries a completely grain-free dog food under the brand Kirkland Signature Nature's Domain. They offer several flavors such as turkey, salmon, beef and chicken. The ingredients do appear to have natural probiotics in them (bacteria designed to help aid in digestion) but does not appear to have any added sugars or yeast products like other high end foods. The only downside? It is recommended for dogs one year and up, so ask your vet prior to switching.

Here is a list of Dog Advisor's top grain free foods for dogs as well as reviews of every product: http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-dog-foods/best-grain-free-dog-foods/best-grain-free-dog-foods-dry/
