Grain Free Foods and companies that produce them –
by Pam Myers
Lets Talk Pet Foods
Due to the situation with all the recalls of pet foods with grains in them being toxic, here is a partial list I put together of grain free foods choices.
This list is on-going, so please feel free to contact me with yours if you do not see it listed.
The majority of the foods on this list are considered by the food experts as ranging from the middle ground foods upwards to the high end foods.
I am personally not saying that these are the best or *safe* ! Who knows what safe is these days. I am not sure there is any such thing as safe, when it comes to choosing commercial pet foods for our fur babies, be they Canine or Feline or any other species for that matter.

The list of grain free foods, below is in alphabetical order. Not all the grain-free flavors or varieties that one company produces may be listed. Some companies have numerous grain-free varieties and some have only one, so you may have to do some searching when you get to the site, for others.
Pet Food Companies Which Are Claiming Grain-Free Foods & Some Of Their Formulas
Please remember, these are alphabetical, and are not in any particular order as to quality or performance, so please do your research. I also put the main site page here in case they move pages on their site and the grain links do not work.
