Amore offers two dog foods with grains or six without. Twelve years ago I tried to eliminate the two foods we make with grains; Beef with Oats and Chicken and Brown Rice. Boy, did I ever hear from customers! In talking with them I discovered that they wanted us to keep making the two foods with grains. We’ve found that dogs that have trouble putting on or keeping on weight do exceptionally well on these formulas; the carbs help in keeping the weight on; this I know from my own personal experience! Many of the pet parents I spoke with had aging pets or pets undergoing cancer treatments and this was the only food that helped their dogs.
