The keto diet is a popular alternative to conventional dog food.
The ketogenic diet, which involves limiting carbohydrates, fats and proteins, is more suitable for dogs with health issues such as arthritis and allergies.
But while it’s a healthy alternative, it can also be problematic for some dogs, especially those who have severe allergies.
So canid owners can use the ketogenic diets for their dogs.
“We recommend ketogenic dog food for all dogs,” says Gary Williams, a veterinary allergist and owner of The Drinks and Drinks Dogs in Melbourne, which caters to the keto dog diet.
“It is designed to be a high quality dog food with minimal additives.”
Dr Williams is the founder of the Canidae Dog Food Company.
His company is the first in Australia to offer the ketonogas as an option.
The company’s dog food is formulated with 100 per cent grass-fed, organic ingredients, including kale, carrots, and collards.
The dog food also has a low-carbohydrate, low-fat profile.
It’s also available in a range of flavours.
The product can be bought in a variety of packages, including an 8-oz tub.
“Our product is very different to what is available from the big companies,” says Dr Williams.
“This has been the result of many years of research.”
Dr. Williams recommends keeping the ketone level of the food to 1.5 micrograms per litre.
For dogs over the age of 8, the average is 3.6 microgram per litter.
Dr Williams says there’s also a range in the diet for dogs over 6 months old.
“You’ll probably be able to get the ketones in that range,” he says.
The price tag on the Canid’s Dog Food range ranges from $45 for 8oz to $70 for 20oz.
The cheapest keto product is available at $28.99, while the highest-end keto version is $50.

“I’d recommend this to anyone that’s interested in the ketosis diet, especially if you have severe dog allergies,” Dr Williams said.
“The more you eat, the better the quality of the diet will be.”
The Canidae Diet Dog Food has been around since 2008.
The first version was sold at pet food store PetSmart in 2014.
The Canids Diet Dog food has been in production for about a year, with about 70,000 kilograms of kenji kombu kombusu (a combination of rice and kombucha) processed into about 1.6 million litters.
“If you’re interested in using the Canidal Diet for your dog, then you should try the Canida Dog Food first,” Dr. William said.
