The Benefits of Healthy Grains


At Vetdiet, we use whole grain formulas balanced to provide healthy nutrition for your pet. All our recipes are formulated by our veterinary and nutrition experts. They feature our heart health blend, which includes taurine, methionine, lysine and L-carnitine.

Whole grains can actually be part of a healthy diet for dogs. See how and why we use whole grains in our Vetdiet formulas:

  1. Healthy whole grains are a good source of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber plays an important role in modulating bowel movement, influencing immune function and gut microbiota profile, diluting caloric density, contributing to weight loss, and indirectly, ameliorating the incidence of obesity and diabetes mellitus in the pet population.
  2. Whole grains like oats and barley have glycemic lowering effects. As such, they deliver energy in a steadier way, keeping your pet full longer for sustained energy throughout the day. More processed sources of carbohydrates may give your pet a quick boost in energy, but that will usually be followed by a “crash” in energy, lethargy, and a pet that is hungry way before mealtime.
  3. At Vetdiet®, we choose to feed pets responsibly by providing diets with digestible proteins to deliver the right amount and balance of amino acids based on the true requirements of cats and dogs. We use healthy grains to provide readily-available energy, and in doing so, are limiting the carbon footprint of each Vetdiet® bag by not over-using proteins.
