Low-fibre dry dog food is good for all dogs because fibre can be difficult for dogs to digest. Foods high in fibre (specifically corn and wheat products) can contribute to canine allergies.

Low-Fiber Dry Dog Foods

Dog Food Advisor maintains a list of 33 dry dog foods that contain little dietary fibre and that are higher in meat-based protein and animal fat than grocery store brands. Some of those dog foods are Annamaet, Blue Buffalo, Canidae, Fromm Four Star Nutritionals, Solid Gold Barking at the Moon and Wellness.


Carbohydrates are used in dog food to bind the other ingredients together and to help the food maintain shape and texture. Corn and wheat are high-fibre carbohydrates that are inexpensive, which is why they are so widely used in dog food. Low-fibre dog food is bound with potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, barley and vegetables such as peas.

Identifying Good Ingredients

Low-fibre dry dog food should not contain meat meal, corn, peanut, oat, wheat or soy products. Whole meats such as chicken, beef, turkey, duck and lamb should be listed in the main ingredients, along with potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, oats, barley, millet or peas as the carbohydrate element.
