What dogs can benefit from a high fibre dog food diet?
In addition to supporting digestive health, our high fibre dog food offers several other benefits for your doggy. For overweight or obese dogs, a high fibre diet can help with weight management by providing a sense of fullness without adding excessive calories. This can help your dog maintain a healthy weight while still receiving the necessary nutrients for optimal health.
High fibre dog food can also contribute to better blood sugar control in dogs with diabetes. The fibre helps slow down the absorption of glucose from the intestines, which can help maintain more stable blood sugar levels. This makes Growling Tums high fibre dog food a smart choice for dogs with specific health concerns.

Why is fibre so important?
Similar to humans, dogs are unable to absorb fibre directly. However, this is precisely what makes it so crucial for their well-being – it aids in the absorption of other essential nutrients and contributes to a feeling of fullness for an extended period. Furthermore, fibre plays a vital role in promoting healthy bowel movements, resulting in feces that are easy to clean up. But the benefits don't end there. Certain types of fibre serve as nourishment for the beneficial bacteria residing in your dog's gut, providing a significant boost to their overall health.
Will a high fibre dog food improve stool quality?
Yes, fibre can significantly help improve the quality of a dog's stools. The two main types of fibre, soluble and insoluble, both contribute to healthier bowel movements in different ways:
Soluble fibre: This type of fibre dissolves in water and forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract. Soluble fibre helps to regulate bowel movements by softening the stools and making them easier to pass. It can be especially beneficial for dogs suffering from constipation.
Insoluble fibre: This type of fibre does not dissolve in water and remains relatively intact as it passes through the digestive system. Insoluble fibre adds bulk to the stools, which can help dogs with diarrhea by absorbing excess water and normalizing bowel movements.
A well-balanced diet containing an appropriate amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre can support your dog's digestive health and contribute to regular, healthy stools.
How do your prebiotics work with high fibre food??
We use prebiotics FOS and MOS in most of our dog food. The combination of high fibre and prebiotics can be beneficial for dogs' digestive health and overall well-being. Here's how each component contributes to a healthy gut:
High fibre: As previously mentioned, fibre plays a crucial role in promoting healthy bowel movements and improving stool quality. It also contributes to a feeling of fullness, which can help with weight management. Both soluble and insoluble fibre work together to support your dog's digestive health.
Prebiotics: Prebiotics are non-digestible dietary components, such as specific types of fibre, that promote the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut. These good bacteria help maintain a balanced gut microbiome, which is essential for overall digestive health, nutrient absorption, and immune system function.
The combination of high fibre and prebiotics in a dog's diet can work synergistically to create a healthy gut environment. While fibre helps regulate bowel movements and maintain digestive health, prebiotics provide nourishment for the beneficial bacteria, allowing them to thrive and contribute to overall gut health.
You don't use artificial additives, preservatives, or colourings, do you?
Absoultely not and we never ever will!
Artificial additives have been linked to many health issues with dogs and we strongly disagree with their use. Instead, we preserve our foods with natural rosemary extract.
