My diet was terrible while my wife was pregnant.
It wasn’t her fault- being pregnant is tough. The baby is rapidly growing and needs lots of calories. The easiest way to get the baby those calories is to eat a lot of foods that are calorie dense (and taste delicious!)
It just so happened that there was quite a bit of extra food laying around. And I helped myself to it.
I probably put on 45 pounds in the first 6 months of her pregnancy.
And, worse than that, my confidence was plummeting. My clothes weren’t fitting.
I was struggling with the vicious cycle of feeling lethargic or gross or just plain bad, snacking on junk to feel better, and then feeling even worse. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced that.
The dogs weren’t happy either. They went from two 25 minute walks a day to very gradually 0 walks a day.
Anyway, my diet was terrible and it was making me feel terrible.
Our dogs feel the exact same way. Just like us, our best friends CRAVE food that’s bad for them (often this food has a lot of grain fillers and additives).
This food can gradually lead to lethargy, poor moods and obesity.
Just like we need to make responsible choices for our diets we need to make responsible choices for our dog’s diets.
What makes a great dog food?
First of all what we need to understand is that even though dogs are omnivores like we are, they are actually opportunistic omnivores. They descended from carnivorous wolves about 12,000 years ago and likely developed their ability to digest plants and grains from hanging out with humans (eating our scraps).
Even though a dog CAN digest plants that doesn’t mean that plants are a dogs best nutritional base. Science suggests that plants aren’t even a good addition to a dog’s diet, either. Check out this post if you’re looking for more information on this topic.
A great dog food understands that even though a dog CAN eat grains, and may even find them delicious, the best dog food for a strong healthy dog that can live a long time is a carnivorous dog food.
Zignature Dog Food
Zignature dog food is one of, if not the best, dog foods available for carnivorous diets. It is grain-free and low carb while not sacrificing taste. More than just grains, Zignature dog food does not use any high-glycemic carbohydrates, such as potatoes, either.
56% of dogs in the US were obese in 2017, according to this study. Like I said before, our dogs only eat what we give them and it’s our responsibility to give them healthy and delicious food that will keep them around.

Hear From Reviewers
I have five rescues and adhere to giving them the best that I can afford. They eat a raw diet from Raw Dog Hawaii in the morning but at nights, especially after a long day, they are a wee bit hungry, so I supplement this dry food in a bowl so they can eat if they are hungry.https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1Q5V2GXLFFD62/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B01KAOUKZA
Mind you, I have absolutely no complaints from them other than the food bowl was empty and I was given the stink eye.
Raw is great, but is so super expensive and you can’t leave it out to eat at whim, so Zignature Venison to the rescue.
They are happy and very content dogs. All five of them.
I have a very picky eater who suffers from allergies. I decided to try this brand, and I am happy that I did. My dog is not only eating less, she has more energy, and is no longer itchy. I am very satisfied with this product and I am so glad that my dog is not suffering anymore. Thanks Zignture!https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1XA5ZXTOJIYTM/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B01KAOUKZA
Zignature is the best dog food on the market for grain-free and very low carb diets. I highly recommend it and so do many others.
You might try the venison flavor to start. That’s our pup’s favorite:
