Low Fat Dog Food FAQ's

What is low fat dog food, and when is it necessary?

Low-fat dog food is formulated with reduced fat content compared to standard dog food. You will find that these foods contain fewer calories than your standard all breed diets. It is typically recommended for dogs with specific health conditions, such as pancreatitis, obesity, or gastrointestinal issues. Low-fat diets can help manage these conditions and promote better overall health.

How can I determine if my dog needs a low-fat diet?

Your vet will most commonly advise the use of a low calorie diet. Your vet will consider factors like age, breed, weight, and any existing medical conditions to determine if a low-fat diet is necessary.

What ingredients should I look for in low fat dog food?

Look for dog foods with high-quality protein sources like kangaroo, chicken or turkey, complex carbohydrates (like sweet potatoes or brown rice), and minimal fat content. Fibre rich ingredients, such as vegetables and whole grains, can also be beneficial for digestive health.

Are there any potential side effects of feeding my dog a low fat diet?

While low fat diets can be beneficial, it's crucial to ensure that the diet still provides all the necessary nutrients. Be aware that some low fat diets may be lower in essential fatty acids. Your dog may have less energy due to the lower amount of calories they are consuming.

Can I switch back to a regular diet after my dog loses weight?

If your dog is just overweight, you can transition back to regular food once your pet is at a healthy weight. If your dog has a condition such as pancreatitis, you are best to remain on the diet for the lifetime of your animal.
