We have been treating Miley and Maggie's ear infections since they were little pups and being new dog owners we really didn't understand how their diet effected their health. When we took them home, we kept them on the food that they were given as puppies and eventually graduated them to adult food. feeding your dog grain free diet for your dog's allergies Once we learned how to read the food labels and how certain ingredients may not be beneficial for all dogs we started to narrow down what was causing these infections to reappear several times a year. We first eliminated all corn, wheat and soy from their diet and noticed a big difference in their fur, skin, ears and digestion.

Not only have the Goldens had zero ear infections but their ears are so clean and the red is completely gone. Bruin has suffered with digestion issues so putting him on a grain-free diet has helped with his gastrointestinal health as well. One of our favorite brands we have turned to for grain-free dog food is Chicken Soup for the Soul.
